BYU in the NFL: John Denney reaches career milestone in week 8

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

While week 8 was a slow week for the former Cougars in the NFL statistically, Miami Dolphins' long snapper John Denney reached an impressive milestone in his 10-year career. Denney played in his 150th consecutive game for Miami, a franchise record. Denney signed with the Dolphins in 2005 as an undrafted free agent and has been with the franchise his entire career.

Ziggy Ansah didn't fill the stat sheet as much as he has in recent week's in Detroit's game with Atlanta in London, but he still recorded a single tackle, a sack, a forced fumble,  2 QB hits, and gave rookie offensive lineman, Jake Matthews, plenty of problems. The trip to London also gave Ansah a chance to see his older sister, who he hadn't seen in six years.

Kyle Van Noy continued to practice for Detroit this past week and is now eligible to be activated from the short-term IR. The Lions have a bye week, but we should see Van Noy on the field when they return to action in week 10 and maybe even at multiple positions.

Dennis Pitta (Ravens): Pitta is out for the season with a major hip injury he suffered in Week 3.

Ziggy Ansah (Lions): Ansah had 1 tackle, 1 sack, a forced fumble, and 2 QB hits in Detroit's 22-21 win over Atlanta.

Kyle Van Noy (Lions): Van Noy is now healthy and fully eligible to be activated from the short-term IR by Detroit. The Lions have a bye this week, but expect to see KVN on the field Nov. 9 versus Miami.

John Denney (Dolphins): Denney recorded 1 tackle in Miami's 27-13 win over Jacksonville. Sunday's game also marked the 150th consecutive game Denney has played in for the Dolphins, a franchise record.

Brett Keisel (Steelers): Keisel had 1 pass deflection in Pittsburgh 51-34 victory over Indianapolis.

Dallas Reynolds (Giants): Reynolds and the Giants had a bye this past week.

Cougars currently on NFL practice squads: Spencer Hadley (Raiders) and Daniel Sorensen (Chiefs).
