Prokies: Week 1
With the first week of the 2023 NFL season under wraps, let’s take a look at how past Hokies lined up this weekend.
Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears
Juice was active against the Packers, as the 3rd-year pro rushed for 27 yards on nine carries. He finished third in receiving yards on the Bears with 37 yards on three targets.
Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders
With four receptions on eight targets for 43 yards, Commanders quarterback Sam Howell targeted Thomas the most in the air against the Cardinals. His longest catch was for 19 yards.
Christian Darrisaw, Minnesota Vikings
Despite the Vikings’ loss, CD allowed no sacks and was solid up front for Minnesota. He did draw one penalty, however; a false start.
Wyatt Teller, Cleveland Browns
Teller was on the field for 74 snaps against the Browns’ domination against the Bengals and held strong, allowing zero sacks, but the real highlight was this play he made against Cincinnati linebacker Germaine Pratt:

FRONT SEVEN (D-LINE AND LINEBACKERS):
Tim Settle, Buffalo Bills
Settle had a quiet night, only finishing with one tackle in the Bills’ stunning loss to the Jets on Monday night.
Divine Deablo, Las Vegas Raiders
Out of every Prokie, Deablo had one of the best weekends defensively. Deablo was the 8th-best linebacker per PFF in week one, and registered nine tackles, including this tackle for a loss:
Tremaine Edmunds, Chicago Bears
Edmunds didn’t have that great of a game against Green Bay. Combined with T.J. Edwards, the two gave up eight catches for 134 yards.
DEFENSIVE BACKS AND SECONDARY:
Kendall Fuller, Washington Commanders
Fuller had an excellent game vs. the Cardinals, as his way was targeted four times on 38 snaps, but he only allowed a reception twice. He also made four tackles.
Chamarri Conner, Kansas City Chiefs
Conner had a quiet first game in the NFL’s season opener Thursday. He accounted for one tackle on a punt return.
Terrell Edmunds, Philadelphia Eagles
In coverage, Edmunds was targeted once with a reception and made three tackles versus the Patriots.
Joey Slye, Washington Commanders
Slye was perfect when three points were needed for Washington, knocking down a field goal in the second quarter from 30 yards and one late in the 4th from 33 yards out. Slye also went 2/2 on PATs, and all four kickoffs went for touchbacks.
