In week two there were a couple former Cougs who got new opportunities.  Tristen Hoge was added to the Cleveland Browns practice squad and Brady Christensen recorded his first career tackle in the Panthers 26-7 win over the Saints.

Meanwhile, NFL veterans Davis, Sorensen, and Warner all had really productive outings.  Michael Davis had six tackles in the Chargers 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.  Daniel Sorensen had a team leading ten tackles, with two tackles for loss in the Chiefs 36-35 loss to the Ravens.  And Fred Warner had seven tackles and a tackle for loss in the 49ers 17-11 victory over the Eagles.

Finally, former BYU running backs named Williams also continued to produce.  Jamaal had 25 rushing yards and 12 receiving yards in the 35-17 loss to his former team, while Ty’Son had 77 yards rushing and 16 yards receiving for the Ravens.

In total there were 13 former BYU players in-action during week two (with three in-active), another six on practice squads, and ten looking for playing opportunities.  Below you get the snap counts and statistics for each player.
