The NFL season is underway.

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

Let’s break down the most recent performances of the 2023 NFL regular season.

D’Onta Foreman, RB: Foreman, now a veteran with the Chicago Bears, is back in the saddle as a starter. He carried the rock 6 times for 14 yards and a touchdown. Despite suffering injury, Foreman has mostly come alive again since a monster outing earlier this season.

Roschon Johnson, RB: In his latest outing for the lowly Chicago Bears, first-year pro Johnson handled 6 carries for 30 yards.

Devin Duvernay, WR: A return specialist for the Baltimore Ravens, Duverney had 1 punt returns that resulted in 5 yards on return offense.

Geoff Swaim, TE: The Arizona Cardinals tight end had 2 receptions for 15 yards.

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

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

Connor Williams, OL: The Miami Dolphins lineman started at center.

Charles Omenihu, DL: It was not exactly a huge week for the starting Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman. Omenihu notched just 1 tackle during the Chiefs’ Monday night outing.

Joseph Ossai, DE: The Cincinnati Bengals defensive end recorded 1 tackle.

Quandre Diggs, DB: Starting at safety, the Seattle Seahawks racked up an impressive outing over the weekend. Altogether, he accounted for 13 tackles (5 solo) on the day.

DeShon Elliott, DB: The Miami Dolphins safety got the start over the weekend. It was an outing in which the secondary veteran racked up just 1 tackle on the afternoon outing.

Michael Dickson, P: The former Longhorn, currently a first-stringer for the Seattle Seahawks, had 4 punts on the afternoon for 202 yards, averaging about 50 yards per punt.

Cameron Dicker, K: Infamously known as “Dicker the Kicker,” the Los Angeles Chargers foot-man went 2-for-2, with 26 yards as his long. He also cleared 2-for-2 in PATs on the day.

Justin Tucker, K: One of the NFL’s top kickers in recent seasons, the Longhorn legend and clutch-guy member of the Baltimore Ravens went 2-for-2 on fields goals, with a 47-yarder as his long, and 4-for-4 in PATs.
