Week two of the NFL preseason is now in the books, and as usual, some former Hawkeye football players are raising an eyebrow in their early efforts.
Tevaun Smith, who was an undrafted free agent in the NFL (but taken in the first round of the CFL draft) scored a touchdown in Lucas Oil Stadium (again) for the Colts against in a 19-18 loss to the Ravens. Smith had 2 catches for 18 yards, including a 1-yard snag for a touchdown.
Carl Davis saw the field on defense for the Colts, registering a tackle in the win.
Henry Krieger-Coble, who was also undrafted, put forth a solid effort for the Broncos in a 31-24 loss to 49ers, registering 3 catches for 30 yards. B.J. Lowery also saw a lot of work on defense for the Broncos, registering 3 solo tackles.
Anthony Hitchens should continue as a force on the Dallas defense this season, registering a team-high 6 tackles in a 41-14 whomping over the Dolphins.
Jordan Lomax (who can be seen on this season’s Hard Knocks) registered 2 tackles for the Rams in 21-20 win over the Chiefs. The ESPN box score also says he had 6 rushes for 32 yards for the Chiefs. I don’t think that’s accurate.
And would you look at that, Brandon Wegher is getting a heavy workload in the preseason for the Carolina Panthers. Wegher carried the ball 8 times for 24 yards in a 26-16 win. He’s apparently battling for the last running back spot on the roster, so let’s wish him luck in prolonging his NFL career there.
