Sunday Knights NFL week 7: Players hit the NFL grind

Not a lot of big stories for former Rutgers players this week.

Lions DE George Johnson pressures Drew Brees to force an interception.

Week seven was a bit of a snoozer for Knights in the NFL, as no player really had a big game. Let's hope that they can return next week with some touchdowns, interceptions, or sacks. Here's the recap of week 7:

Kenny Britt (WR, St. Louis Rams)

The Rams pulled off a stunning upset of the defending Super Bowl-champion Seattle Seahawks, with the key plays both coming on punt returns. Britt did not have his best game, as he was only targeted three times. He finished with two catches for four yards.

Marcus Cooper (CB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Andy Reid decided to bench Cooper in favor of Jamell Fleming for Sunday's game against the San Diego. It is not yet known whether Cooper's benching will last beyond this game, as Fleming did have struggles. Marcus apparently handled it well:

Anthony Davis (RT, San Francisco 49ers)

Bam struggled in pass protection against Denver on Sunday night, giving up one sack, one QB hit, and two QB hurries. He wasn't alone in his poor effort, as the entire 49er offensive line is beat up right now. He should benefit from the upcoming bye week.

Khaseem Greene (LB, Chicago Bears)

It was a matchup of inconsistent teams on Sunday when the Bears hosted the Dolphins, as Miami QB Ryan Tannehill picked apart a struggle Chicago defense. Khaseem Greene and the rest of the linebacker corps didn't have the greatest games, as he finished with four total tackles.

Duron Harmon (SS, New England Patriots)

Through week seven, Harmon has played in 24% of the Patriots defensive snaps. He snagged one tackle against the Jets last Thursday night.

George Johnson (DE, Detroit Lions)

Johnson was only able to notch one tackle on the stat sheet against New Orleans on Sunday, but the veteran was key in forcing a fourth-quarter Drew Brees interception that served as a turning point for the Lions' win.

Jason McCourty (CB, Tennessee Titans)

Jason finished with two total tackles on Sunday in a loss to the Redskins. He committed a fourth-quarter pass-interference penalty covering DeSean Jackson, and a scuffle ensued after.

Devin McCourty (FS, New England Patriots)

Devin had a solid game in a victory over the rival Jets, amassing three total tackles.

Logan Ryan (CB, New England Patriots)

Ryan led all former Knight-turned-Patriot players with four total tackles against New York on Thursday Night Football.

Mohamed Sanu (WR, Cincinnati Bengals)

Cincinnati's new number one wideout (with A.J. Green out) almost screwed up his perfect passer rating he's built up over the years, but Sanu decided to take a sack instead. His passing stat line remains a perfect 4 for 4 with 166 yards and two touchdowns. He led the team in receiving yardage with 54.

Tim Wright (TE, New England Patriots)

Here's another story about Stylin' Tim Wright and his side-job as a barber/hair stylist. Jason Baum recounts a story where Wright actually went to Baum's house when he had back surgery so he could give him an in-house trim.
