With week two of the 2023 NFL season completed, let's check out some Hokies and how they performed on their gamedays.


Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears

Juice could not get loose as Herbert and the Bears abandoned the run game early. The third-year pro rushed for 35 yards on only seven carries. He also recorded a 23-yard reception for his only catch of the game.

Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders

Thomas hauled in two receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown. Although he made an outstanding play in the endzone to give Sam Howell and the Commanders their first touchdown of the game, he took an unnecessary hit from safety Kareem Jackson, which ruled him out for the rest of the game with a concussion.

Logan Thomas, who has suffered a meniscus tear and an ACL tear during his career, cannot seem to catch a break from the injury bug. Let's just hope he can recover quickly from the concussion and get back on the field.


Christian Darrisaw, Minnesota Vikings

Darrisaw, who was active for this past Thursday's contest vs. the Eagles after picking up an ankle injury in week one, did not see the field as he reaggravated his ankle in pre-game warm-ups.

Duane Brown, New York Jets

Brown, who is on the mend from a shoulder injury in camp, had a rough go at things vs. the Cowboys dealing with Micah Parsons and Co. He finished with a 37.5 offensive rating and allowed a sack, a QB hit, a hurry, and four pressures.

Wyatt Teller, Cleveland Browns

Teller struggled a bit this week as he totaled 90 snaps vs. the Steelers. He allowed one sack, a quarterback hit, and a hurry, as well as four pressures. He also went viral on social media once again. Last week it was for his exceptional blocking, this time for his dance moves:


Tim Settle, Buffalo Bills

Settle did not register any stats, as he didn't see much of the field in the Bills 38-10 win over the Raiders.

Divine Deablo, Las Vegas Raiders

Deablo again takes the crown for the best Prokie performance this past Sunday against Buffalo. Deablo was flying around the field, registering 10 total tackles, six of which were solo, and a sack.

Tremaine Edmunds, Chicago Bears

Edmunds cleaned up his play in his second game of the season, totaling a 76.9 defensive rating. He recorded 16 total tackles, eight of which were solo, and only allowed 18 yards in pass coverage.


Greg Stroman Jr, Chicago Bears

Stroman Jr. was the third-leading total tackler for the Bears, totaling seven tackles, and added a tackle for loss as well.

Kendall Fuller, Washington Commanders

Fuller excelled in week two vs. the Broncos, nearly mirroring his performance in the first week. He allowed only two receptions on 14 yards receiving and added a pass defended.

Chamarri Conner, Kansas City Chiefs

Conner saw only two snaps for the Chiefs and did not register any stats. He is still behind in the depth chart as he begins his NFL career.

Terrell Edmunds, Philadelphia Eagles

Edmunds had a decent game, allowing three receptions on 33 yards receiving as well as adding six total tackles, five of which were solo. He did, however, have a stellar tackle on Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, which caused him to fumble the ball into the endzone. This was ruled a touchback, and the Eagles retained possession at their own 20-yard line:


Joey Slye, Washington Commanders

Slye went 50% on his field goals vs. the Broncos, missing two field goals from 49+. He did, however, knock in one from 44 yards and the other from 49 yards, as well as going 3/3 on PAT attempts and six touchbacks in as many attempts.

Born in Chesapeake and raised into a family of hokies, Virginia Tech is where I call home now. Attended New River Community College as a freshman and now a sophomore at VT as a transfer student in Fall 2022. Majoring in Sports Media and Analytics, I’m excited for what’s to come for me as a student at VT.

Virginia Tech sports has always been something I have been a fan of. From afternoons in Lane Stadium to nights in Cassell Coliseum, I have loved every second of it no matter the outcome.

One of my first memories of being a Tech fan was our upset win against Ohio State 35-21 where CB Donovan Riley had the game sealing pick-6. More recently, beating UNC in 6 overtimes, our run to the sweet 16, and of course winning the men’s basketball ACC Championship with upsets over UNC and Duke.
