Hoos in the NFL: Week 3 Recap

Watch out, Tom Brady. Eli Harold has your number.

NFL: New England Patriots at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Each week we will be keeping tabs on the former Virginia Cavaliers now in the NFL. Here is how the Hoos in the NFL fared in Week 3:

Starters:

Rodney McLeod - Philadelphia Eagles - Safety: The Eagles got back in the win column this week with a 20-16 win over the Colts. McLeod started, but recorded just one assisted tackle and one pass defended. He played just 34 snaps on defense and also saw four special teams plays.

Morgan Moses - Washington Redskins - Offensive Tackle: Moses started at RT, but played just 16 plays. He suffered a concussion and is undergoing tests to evaluate the injury. He’s day-to-day but will probably miss some more time. Best wishes to Mo.

Brent Urban - Baltimore Ravens - Defensive End: The former star lineman for UVA started for Baltimore and recorded one solo tackle for loss (4-yard loss) and one assisted tackle. He saw 38 plays on defense and two on special teams.

Rotation Players:

Eli Harold - Detroit Lions - Linebacker: The former star Hoo linebacker had a big week, with two sacks in 21 defensive plays. He had three total tackles in the Lions upset over the New England Patriots.

Here’s the first sack:

The second is even better:

Chris Long - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive End: Chris had one tackle on 36 defensive plays in the Eagles win.

Anthony Harris - Minnesota Vikings - Safety: “Ant” Harris was in for 18 special teams plays for Minnesota but did not record any stats.

LaRoy Reynolds - Philadelphia Eagles - Linebacker: Reynolds saw 23 snaps of special teams action for the Eagles and the only stat he recorded was a holding penalty.

Micah Kiser - Los Angeles Rams - Linebacker: Kiser has only been used on special teams for the Rams. This week he saw 16 snaps and did not record any stats.

Darius Jennings - Tennessee Titans - Wide Receiver: The former star UVA receiver was on the field for seven offensive plays and for nine special teams plays. He had one catch for seven yards, which was his only target.

Backups:

Matt Schaub - Atlanta Falcons - Quarterback: Schaub did not see any action in Atlanta’s shootout loss to the Saints.

Maurice Canady - Baltimore Ravens - Cornerback: Canady was placed on the injured reserve after injuring his thigh but may return later in the season.
