With Ziggy Ansah on a bye, week 9 of the NFL season was a slow one for former Cougars statistically. Pittsburgh DE Brett Keisel was the only former Cougars to record any meaningful stats this week. Keisel recorded three tackles in the Steelers' dominant win over the Ravens. Keisel spoke with reporters after the big win.
The best news for former Cougars came in the form of roster moves. Kansas City rookie, Daniel Sorensen was activated to the Chiefs' 53-man roster for the first time since week 1. Sorensen saw time on special teams on Sunday, picking up a nice block on a long kick return.
Kyle Van Noy was activated from the Lions' IR on Monday, which means we're less than a week away from seeing the rookie linebacker in his first NFL regular season action. It also means we may soon see Van Noy and Ansah wreaking havoc on opposing offenses together once again and apparently I'm not the only person excited about that.
Dennis Pitta (Ravens): Pitta is out for the season with a major hip injury he suffered in Week 3.
Ziggy Ansah (Lions): Detroit had a bye this past week, so Ansah did not play.
Kyle Van Noy (Lions): Van Noy was activated from the IR on Monday and will be available for Detroit this upcoming week versus Miami.
John Denney (Dolphins): Denney handled Miami's long snapping duties in the Dolphins' 37-0 over San Diego, but did not record any stats.
Brett Keisel (Steelers): Keisel has 3 tackles, including 1 solo tackle in Pittsburgh's 43-23 victory over Baltimore.
Dallas Reynolds (Giants): Reynolds played in New York's 40-24 loss to Indianapolis, but did not record any stats.
