"Prokies" in the NFL: A Weekly Report
Sons and Daughters welcome to "Prokies in the NFL: A Weekly Report." Week two is now underway in the NFL, which means several of our favorite Hokies are launching their seasons with their respective teams. These weekly reports will provide you with a synopsis of how they performed each week statistically, along with new signings/trades, and much more!
Without further adieu....
Ford saw the field again in week two, but made a much more significant impact for the Dolphins. He recorded seven catches for 76 yards, averaging almost 11 yards a catch. Expect 'Fitzmagic' to keep looking for him on quick out routes and slants since he is arguably their best route-runner.
Isaiah Ford has made some huge catches today. Rarely flashy but consistency is huge.— Cameron Wolfe (@CameronWolfe) September 20, 2020
LT3 (well, now LT82), has immediately made a difference for the Washington offense. He had a touchdown and four receptions in week one. Thomas was targeted nine more times this week against the Cards and had 26 yards on four receptions, but no score.

Brown is a solidified veteran in the NFL at this point. Through week two, he is the fifth ranked tackle in terms of PFF grades. He is a balanced run and pass blocker that is key to Seattle's 2-0 start.
Teller is serving his pancakes with extra syrup this season. After a brutal week one loss to Baltimore, he still recorded a 91.2 PFF grade which was one of the highest offensive line grades in the league. Week two was no different, he helped lead the Browns to their first win on the season against the Bengals. As it stands, he is the highest PFF graded guard in the NFL.
Terrell also is becoming a force at safety for the 2-0 Steelers. He has recorded 12 total tackles and a sack through week two. This past Sunday, he made this game winning sack on 4th and 2 to stop Denver from taking the lead!
To no surprise, no one is taking any chances on Kyle when throwing the ball. He already has an interception on the year and nine total tackles. He also has been targeted 15 times, only allowing a 27.3 passer rating. Incredibly hard to beat!
Settle saw the field more in week two, grabbing two tackles in their loss to Arizona. He has been rotating in at the interior line, but Del Rio likes his ability to plug gaps. Expect to see him more in the future!
After a breakout season for Baltimore last year, Clark was gifted a three year extension in February. Through week two, he has 12 total tackles, a forced fumbled, and an assisted sack. He's no doubt becoming a force at the safety position for the Ravens.
Most Hokies will agree that no one works harder than Joey Slye, and its apparent this season that he worked on his game. After struggling early last season, Joey has made a complete turnaround early this season. He is 4/4 through week two, two of them over 40 yards.
Tremaine Edmunds - Tremaine left week one against the Jets with an apparent shoulder injury and was limited in practice before this last week. He sat out week two, but the Pro-Bowler should be back within the next week or two.
Kendall Fuller - Kendall is the projected starter at RCB for Washington, but has been out the last two weeks with a knee injury. Washington is hoping to have him back week three, because it was clear they missed him this past weekend.
Dalton Keene - The rookie has been inactive the last two weeks with a neck injury, but is hoping to make his debut in the next couple weeks. The Patriots only have two other active TE's, and Super Cam could use some more weapons.
Tyrod Taylor - Hokie fans were disappointed to hear Herbert was already the starter week two against the Chiefs. However, Tyrod was ruled out after pulling a chest muscle in pregame warmups. Herbert almost led the Chargers to an emphatic win, but head coach Anthony Lynn made it clear T-Mobile will still be the starter going forward.
