Tracking Alabama players in Week 8 action

Alabama was well-represented in Week 8 of the regular season at the professional level, as several former Crimson Tide standouts were contributors for new teams across the NFL.

Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake scored a pair of touchdowns Thursday night in a losing effort against the Texans, one rushing and one receiving. Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard was also on the receiving end of a score, giving him 400-plus yards and three touchdowns. 

Defensively, Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley led the way with 11 tackles this week. It’s the second straight week the former All-American has led all former Alabama players in tackles. Rams linebacker Mark Barron put two points on the board for Los Angeles with a Sunday safety, while defensive linemen Marcell Dareus, Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne recorded sacks. 

Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower (knee), Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey (quad) and Packers cornerback Tony Brown were inactive. Raiders quarterback AJ McCarron and Ravens offensive lineman Bradley Bozeman did not play. The Titans re-signed Jalston Fowler. 

Teams with Week 8 bye weeks included the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans. There are no players on the active rosters for the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings or Pittsburgh Steelers.
