Abdullah and Bucannon each turned in solid defensive performances—a pleasant and recurring theme seemingly every weekend this season.
In Miami, however, Gibson continues to see his playing time evaporate. The Cougar great was targeted just twice in the Dolphins’ win Sunday, while his replacement, rookie Jarvis Landry, was thrown the ball six times, catching 5, including a touchdown.
Here’s how the NFL Cougs performed in week 9:
Husain Abdullah, S, Kansas City, 6th season: Recorded six tackles (5 solo) in the Chiefs’ 24-10 win against the Jets.
Deone Bucannon, S, Arizona, Rookie: Posted three solo tackles on defense, another on special teams, and defensed one pass in the Cardinals’28-17 defeat of Dallas.
Jed Collins, FB, Detroit, 5th season: Did not play; bye week.
John Fullington, T, San Francisco, rookie: Did not play; assigned to the 49ers’ practice squad.
Brandon Gibson, WR, Miami, 6th season: The Puyallup native caught one pass for 18 yards in the Dolphins’ 37-0 trouncing of San Diego.
Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets, 5th season: Ran the ball eight times for 22 yards in the Jets’ fall to Kansas City.
Travis Long, LB, Philadelphia, 1st year: Did not play; on injured reserve.
Ropati Pitoitua, DE, Tennessee, 6th season: Did not play; bye week.
Jeff Tuel, QB, Buffalo, 2nd season: Did not play; assigned to the Bills’ practice squad.
Marquess Wilson, WR, Chicago, 2nd season: Did not play; on injured reserve with a designation to return. He is eligible to suit up for the Bears in week 10.
