The NFL season is underway.

So are the careers of some of your favorite former Texas Longhorns athletes.

Let’s break the performances in Week 6 of the 2023 NFL regular season.

Bijan Robinson, RB: Robinson, who was selected in the first round of last spring’s NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons, logged 13 carries for 37 yards and also grabbed 5 receptions for 43 yards. Expect Robinson to keep hitting the toggle stick for the remaining 2023 regular season.

D’Onta Foreman, RB: With rookie Roschon Johnson out for the week, the Chicago Bears turned to veteran Foreman, who carried the rock 15 times for 65 yards and recorded 1 reception for 2 yards.

Devin Duvernay, WR: A return specialist for the Baltimore Ravens, Duverney had 2 punt returns for 91 yards. He also returned 2 kickoffs for 41 yards.

Marquise Goodwin, WR: The Cleveland Browns wide receiver accounted for 1 reception for 4 yards, as well as 1 carry for 20 yards.

Andrew Beck, TE: A big man gadget of sorts, the former Longhorn again started at fullback for the Houston Texans.

Geoff Swaim, TE: The Arizona Cardinals tight end got the start over the weekend.

Samuel Cosmi, OL: The second-year big man up front started at right guard for the Washington Commanders.

Poona Ford, DL: The Buffalo Bills defensive lineman had 1 tackle.

Joseph Ossai, DE: The Cincinnati Bengals defensive end recorded 1 tackle and 1 quarterback hurry last weekend.

Jordan Hicks, LB: The starting Minnesota Vikings linebacker accounted for another epic day – and in Hicks fashion, one might say. That included 10 tackles (5 solo), 1 interception, and a 42-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Hicks is again coming into his own season, as was expected all along. Expect to see more all-star performances from the Texas alum.

Malik Jefferson, LB: The Dallas Cowboys linebacker had a respectable showing over the weekend. Jefferson recorded 1 tackle.

DeShon Elliott, DB: The Miami Dolphins safety got the start over the weekend. It was an outing in which he racked up 5 tackles (3 solo.)

Adrian Phillips, DB: The New England Patriots starting safety saw 2 tackles (1 solo.)

Brandon Jones, DB: The Miami Dolphins defensive back recorded 1 tackle.

Quandre Diggs, DB: The Seattle Seahawks racked up an impressive outing over the weekend. Altogether, he accounted for 8 solo tackles.

Michael Dickson, P: The former Longhorn, currently a first-stringer for the Seattle Seahawks, had 3 punts on the afternoon for 115 yards, averaging about 38 yards per punt.

Justin Tucker, K: One of the NFL’s top kickers in recent seasons, the former Longhorn legend went an incredible 6-6 on fields goals, with 41 yards as his long, as well as 0-for-1 in PATs.
