Marquise Goodwin lost his newborn son hours before his game on Sunday. He played through the tragedy and went 83 yards for a touchdown on his only catch of the game. Running back Malcolm Brown and linebacker Keenan Robinson have most likely suffered season-ending injuries. Nick Rose continues to perform.

Let’s take a look at how all the former ‘Horns did this past week:

Malcolm Brown (RB-LAR): Brown injured his MCL last week and was held out of Sunday’s game. The injury could potentially be long-term and Brown will be out for a little bit of time according to head coach Sean McVay. This is a huge blow as Brown was finally hitting his stride as a backup running back.

Jamaal Charles (RB-DEN): Charles ran eight times for 38 yards in the Broncos substantial Sunday night defeat.

D’Onta Foreman (RB-HOU): Foreman rushed for 18 yards on seven attempts in a losing effort. This was probably Foreman’s worst game so far in the NFL.

Marquise Goodwin (WR-SF): An 83-yard touchdown highlighted a very emotional game for Goodwin. After losing his newborn son a couple of hours before the game, he made a big time play for him. He burned superb cornerback Janoris Jenkins and the rest was history. Goodwin added an 18-yard rush, as well.

Hassan Ridgeway (DT-IND): Ridgeway recorded his second sack of the season on the legendary quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in a loss.

Lamarr Houston (DE-HOU): The defensive end recorded three solo tackles including one tackle for a loss on Sunday.

Alex Okafor (DE-NO): Okafor filled the stat sheet in a variety of ways on Sunday. He had four total tackles, a pass deflection, a sack and two quarterback hits. He now has 4.5 sacks on the season. Playing without Vaccaro, the Saints defense stepped up and had another domination performance in a 47-10 win.

Brian Orakpo (DE-TEN): Orapko’s lone tackle on Sunday was a sack, his 2.5 sack of the season.

Brian Robison (DT-MIN): Robison had four solo tackles and a pass deflection in the Vikings 38-30 win.

Sam Acho (LB-CHI): Acho totaled four tackles and had 0.5 sacks in a 23-16 loss.

Keenan Robinson (LB-NYG): After injuring his quad last week, Robinson has been placed on the IR and will put an end to his season.

Quandre Diggs (Nickel CB-DET): The undersized corner continues to lay the wood and play much than his size on the field. Diggs came off a blitz and perfectly hit Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer, this knocked him out of the game for a couple of drives. Diggs finished the game with six total tackles in a Lions victory.

Adrian Colbert (S-SF): In his 2nd career NFL start, Colbert recorded four solo tackles and had two pass deflections. He also delivered a booming hit on Giants wide receiver Roger Lewis.

Phil Dawson (K-ARI): Dawson hit a 43-yard field goal and went 1-for-2 on extra points in a Thursday night loss.

Nick Rose (K-WAS): Rose had another perfect performance on Sunday. He connected on all three field goal (21, 28, and 55 yarders) and extra point attempts. The 55-yard field goal pulled the Redskins within 8 late in the fourth quarter. It will be interesting to see if the Redskins stick with Rose when Dustin Hopkins returns from injury.
