Pro Frogs: Dalton’s debut, Collier’s first career sack

The Red Rifle will be Dallas’ QB for the rest of 2020, it seems.

Not a lot of wins for former Frogs in the NFL this weekend, but Andy Dalton and L.J. Collier had big days.

Let’s take a look around TCU Football’s alumni in the league this week.

Jason Verrett, CB, San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers are in trouble. After suffering a season’s worth of injuries in a single game early in the season, they are getting players back — but the results aren’t there. Verrett continues to play well, though, and had four tackles in the 43-17 loss to the Dolphins.

Ben Banogu, DE, Indianapolis Colts

Big Ben took just ten snaps on defense but continues to be an important part of Indy’s special teams. He recorded a tackle as the Colts fell ot Baker Mayfield and the Browns.

Ross Blacklock, DT, Houston Texans

Ross’ PT has gone almost each week, and he played the fewest snaps since week one Sunday. He did record a tackle, though, as the Texans got off the schneid and made Romeo Crennel the oldest person to coach — and win — and NFL game.

L.J. Collier, DE, Seattle Seahawks

Congrats go to LJ, who recorded his first career sack Sunday night to help the Hawks record an impressive comeback against Minnesota in Prime Time.

He finished the game with two tackles, a tackle for loss, and a hit on Kirk Cousins.

Andy Dalton, QB, Dallas Cowboys

What an amazing Sunday for Dalton; though his appearance on the field for the Dallas Cowboys was due to a horrific injury suffered by Dak Prescott, it’s hard not to be happy for the Red Rifle and his first significant playing time since signing with Dallas. Dalton finished 9-11 for 111 yards in leading the Boys to a victory over the Giants, securing first place for America’s Team. He had a couple of really great throws in the process — ICYMI, we covered his night in depth right here.

Jeff Gladney, CB, Minnesota Vikings

Oh Jeff, some things never change. Though his Vikings lost, Gladney had one of the night’s best highlights, as he took on DK Metcalf, a physical freak who has 6” and 40 pounds on him:

Gladney started and played every snap on defense, recording three tackles and holding Metcalf to just 13 yards when matched up on him.

Jerry Hughes, DE, Buffalo Bills

(Hughes plays Tuesday night. We will update after his game)

Joe Noteboom, OL, Los Angeles Rams

Noteboom remains on IR for the Rams.

Matt Pryor, OG/OT, Philadelphia Eagles

Pryor has locked down the starting job at right guard for Philly, and though it wasn’t a great day for the Eagles’ offensive line (five sacks), it was certainly not all his fault.

Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

Reagor remains on IR for the Eagles.

Austin Schlottmann, OG/C, Denver Broncos
