As far as transactions goes, Week 5 was pretty eventful for our former Huskers. We saw Randy Gregory cut but then traded and Cam Jurgens land on injured reserve. But we also saw Ochaun Mathis come off injured reserve while Ben Stille and Khalil Davis were activated from the practice squad. Let’s see how each former Husker did in their Week 5 games.
Nick Gates, Washington Commanders

It was a tough game for Gates and the Commanders on Thursday in their loss to the Bears. Gates was the target of many fans as he whiffed on a block on 3rd and inches which allowed the Bears defender to come in and make the stop.
Maliek Collins, Houston Texans
In the Texans loss to the Falcons, Collins had two tackles but one did get his first tackle for loss on the season while also finishing with a quarterback hurry.
Khalil Davis, Houston Texans

1 Forced Fumble
The #Texans signed Khalil to the active roster last week, and he repays them with a great performance.

Activated again from the practice squad, Khalil Davis had quite the game for the Texans, finishing with four tackles but also having a key forced fumble in the third quarter on rookie running back Khalil Davis.
Dicaprio Bootle, Carolina Panthers
Active for a second straight week, Bootle finished with a single tackle on a second quarter kickoff.
Ben Stille, Arizona Cardinals
Injuries led the Cardinals to elevating Stille from the practice squad and he wasted no time making his sole tackle early in the first quarter. Stille did make another tackle but a penalty wiped it away.
Cam Taylor-Britt, Cincinnati Bengals
Struggling early on against the Arizona Cardinals, Taylor-Britt stepped up with a huge pick six to swing the momentum and help the Bengals take the lead. Add in a couple more passes defended and it was another strong game for Taylor-Britt.
Jack Stoll, Philadelphia Eagles
Stoll wasn’t just opening holes for the Eagles running backs this weekend, he did get his first catch of the season for a four yard gain.
Brett Maher, Los Angeles Rams
It was a quiet day for Maher who didn’t have a single field goal attempt and was successful in both extra point attempts.
Ochaun Mathis, Los Angeles Rams
Mathis made his season debut coming off injured reserve to face off against the Eagles. Mathis wasn’t able to make any plays but it did appear he was held on one play that may have prevented him from getting his first sack of his career.
Randy Gregory, San Francisco 49ers
After reports of Gregory being cut by the Denver Broncos, the next day it was reported that Gregory had actually been traded to the 49ers. Gregory was inactive against the Cowboys but hopefully he’ll get back to his Dallas days as he struggled to make an impact with the Broncos.
Brenden Jaimes, Los Angeles Chargers
Lavonte David, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Trey Palmer, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
