NFL Cougar Highlights: Week Two

ONCE AGAIN, CLEVELAND fans got a brief glimpse of the good things that can happen when Jerome Harrison touches the ball and are again left wondering why his number is called so seldom. Former teammate Michael Bumpus made the most of his big league debut, averaging 15 yards on 3 punt returns.

Here's how all of the NFL Cougars performed in week two:
