Trojans in the NFL: Week 5

Junior Seau (LB – New England) was acting like a kid again as he celebrated two interceptions against Cleveland. The 18-year veteran also made 6 tackles (one for a loss) and had 23 yards on the returns.

Keary Colbert (WR – Carolina) led the Panthers in receiving in a
victory over former teammate Reggie Bush. His four grabs for 74 yards
were highlighted by a 43 yard catch. He fumbled once, but Carolina
recovered.

Reggie Bush
(RB – New Orleans) picked up 119 total yards as the Saints fell to the Panthers. Bush became the top running back in the Big Easy due to an injury suffered last week by Deuce McAllister, but nothing was easy about his 67 yards on 21 carries. Mr. Excitement’s longest run was 13 yards.

Matt Leinart (QB – Arizona) is out indefinitely. The struggling
signal caller fractured his left collarbone while being sacked (you may
recall that he’s a lefty). Before being injured, he was 7-of-13 for 100
yards and an interception.

Sammy Knight (S – Jacksonville) led the Jaguars with 8 tackles in a win over Kansas City.

Brian Kelly (CB – Tampa Bay) overcame his struggles with turf toe to make three tackles in a loss to Indianapolis.

LenDale White (RB – Tennessee) lost a fumble and had 32 yards on 12 carries as the Titans beat Atlanta.

Shaun Cody (DT – Detroit) managed a tackle in a loss to Washington.

Lofa Tatupu (LB – Seattle) participated in seven tackles in a loss to Pittsburgh.

Willie McGinest (LB – Cleveland) made two tackles in a loss to New England.

Troy Polamalu (S – Pittsburgh) did not play due to a rib cartilage injury suffered last week. He is listed as questionable. Inactive players aren’t normally mentioned in this feature, but we neglected to mention the injury last week.

Also played: Dominique Byrd (TE – St. Louis), Billy Miller (TE – New Orleans).
