Quiet week for Cougs in the Pros: BYU Football Pro Tracker, Week 6

There were several former BYU football players on NFL teams that had byes this weekend, and those that played didn’t have as big an impact during week six as we are accustomed to seeing. The few highlights include linebacker Kyle Van Noy with four solo tackles and a fumble recovery in the end zone for the Patriots, and cornerback Michael Davis starting and getting five tackles (four solo) for the Chargers.

In total, there were just 10 former BYU players in-action during week six (two starters), three with byes, two in-active, and another seven on practice squads.  Below you get the snap counts and statistics for each active player.
