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 1 carries for 3 yards, before unexpectedly leaving the game.

D’Onta Foreman, RB: Foreman, now a veteran with the Chicago Bears, is back in the saddle as a starter. He carried the rock 16 times for 89 yards, resulting in two touchdowns on the afternoon, and recorded 3 reception for 31 yards, which also produced one touchdown.

Devin Duvernay, WR: A return specialist for the Baltimore Ravens, Duverney had 2 punt returns, both of which ended up being fair catches. He also notched 1 special teams tackle.

Malcolm Roach, DL: Finally, it was a massive day for the big Roach. The New Orleans Saints defensive lineman accounted for 4 tackles (3 solo) and 1 tackle for loss.

Jordan Hicks, LB: The starting Minnesota Vikings linebacker accounted for another epic day – and in Hicks fashion, one might say. That included 8 tackles (4 solo) and 1 pass defended.

DeShon Elliott, DB: The Miami Dolphins safety got the start over the weekend. It was an outing in which he racked up 4 tackles (2 solo.)

Adrian Phillips, DB: The New England Patriots starting safety saw 1 special teams tackle.

Quandre Diggs, DB: The Seattle Seahawks racked up an impressive outing over the weekend. Altogether, he accounted for 3 solo tackles.

Michael Dickson, P: The former Longhorn, currently a first-stringer for the Seattle Seahawks, had 3 punts on the afternoon for 143 yards, averaging about 47 yards per punt.

Justin Tucker, K: One of the NFL’s top kickers in recent seasons, the former Longhorn legend went an incredible 1-1 on fields goals, with 32 yards as his long, and 5-for-5 in PATs.

Cameron Dicker, K: Infamously known as “Dicker the Kicker,” the Los Angeles Chargers foot-man went 1-for-1, with 55 yards as his long. He also cleared 2-for-2 in PATs on the day.
