Trojans in the NFL: Week 8

After this weekend, the Trojans are wishing some of these guys were still on campus …

LenDale White (RB – Tennessee) set a career high with 133 yards on the ground and added an eight yard reception to power the Titans over Oakland 13-9.

Reggie Bush (RB – New Orleans) may not have impressive rushing totals considering he’s the Saint’s feature back, but he’s still a good fantasy pick. Stats from Sunday’s 31-10 drubbing of San Francisco: 10 rushes, 64 yards, long of 20; 7 catches, 49 yards, long of 25.

Matt Cassell (QB – New England) rarely sees much action backing up Tom Brady, but the Patriots are so good (think USC a few years ago) that he was given a chance to make some plays. He connected on 21- and 7-yard passes and ran 15 yards for a touchdown. The Pats decimated Washington 52-7.

Carson Palmer (QB – Cincinnati) cracked a passer rating of 100
for the first time since week 2, but the Bengals dropped against rival
Pittsburgh 24-13. Palmer was 23-of-31 for 205 yards and a touchdown.

Keary Colbert (WR – Carolina) had 4 grabs for 35 yards but the Panthers fell to Indianapolis 31-7.

Justin Fargas (RB – Oakland) was the second leading rusher in the game to LenDale White, with 61 yards on 12 carries. He added three catches for 36 yards.

Sammy Knight (S – Jacksonville) made an interception and six tackles in a 24-23 win over Tampa Bay.

Willie McGinest (LB – Cleveland) made three tackles and also participated in three interceptions (though didn’t make them himself).

Billy Miller (TE – New Orleans) had grabs of 5 and 12 yards to help the Saints beat the 49ers.

Troy Polamalu (S – Pittsburgh) made six tackles and participated in an interception against former teammate Palmer.

Mike Patterson (DT – Philadelphia) made four tackles in a win over Minnesota.

Junior Seau (LB – New England) made four tackles in the victory over Washington.

Kenechi Udeze (DE – Minnesota) made one sack and two tackles in a 23-16 victory over Philadelphia.

Mike Williams (WR – Oakland)
had two grabs for 20 yards while falling to Tennessee.
