Week 3 of the NFL season has wrapped up, and of the former Bulls that are still in the League, only one logged any significant snaps.
Khalil Mack, Chicago Bears
Mack keeps making Jon Gruden and the Raiders foolish for trading him away—as he has been nothing short of a one man wrecking crew, the new Monster of the Midway. Against the Arizona Cardinals this past Sunday, Mack added 2 sacks and a forced fumble against the Red Birds to power the Bears to 2-1, as they now sit in first place in the NFC North. Mack did have a negative play, however, as he was called offside negating an interception. In the end, the play was inconsequential as the Cardinals offense couldn’t get anything going.
On the season Mack now has 4 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and an interception. The Raiders defense as a whole? 3 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception.
Mack and the Bears return home to Soldier Field to face Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buccaneers this coming Sunday.
Steven Means, Atlanta Falcons
After being the final cut from the Eagles’ roster, Means was signed by the Falcons. In a shootout against Drew Brees and the Saints, Means made his debut in a Falcons uniform. He played 18 snaps or about 23 percent of the defensive snaps at defensive end. However, Means did not record any tackles or statistics in his time on the field.
The Falcons stay at home for a tilt with fellow UB alum Mason Schreck and the Cincinnati Bengals.
Mason Schreck, Cincinnati Bengals
Speaking of Schreck, he was active against the Baltimore Ravens, however, he did not log any offensive snaps.
Schreck will look to see the field for the first time against Atlanta this weekend.
Demone Harris, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Harris remains on the Bucs’ practice squad.
Kristjan Sokoli, New York Giants
Sokoli is on season-ending IR.
