With [tag]Vince Young[/tag] injured it wasn’t a very exciting week for ex-Longhorns in the NFL. Quentin Jammer and Selvin Young probably had the best weeks, while the complete absence of Jermichael Finley and Limas Sweed continues. Here’s how all the former Horns did in week two of the NFL season:

[tag]Jamaal Charles[/tag] – Less busy after a good week one, only three carries for seven yards. The Chiefs only rushed the ball 19 times all game as a team. Charles also had a 15 yard catch and hurt Larry Johnson’s feelings.

[tag]Phil Dawson[/tag] – Two of two on field goals with a long of 38 yards in a loss.

[tag]Jermichael Finley[/tag] – Still looking for his first career catch. I’m not sure if he’s getting any snaps at all.

[tag]Cedric Griffin[/tag] – Six tackles and one pass breakup against Peyton Manning and the Colts.

[tag]Michael Griffin[/tag] – Picked up his first interception of the year off a tipped pass. Also added six tackles from his safety spot.

[tag]Ahmard Hall[/tag] – Three carries for nine yards.

[tag]Casey Hampton[/tag] – One tackle.

[tag]Michael Huff[/tag] – Four tackles against KC and two passes defended.

[tag]Quentin Jammer[/tag] – Posted 11 tackles and had a forced fumble in the Chargers’ controversial loss to the Broncos.

[tag]Derrick Johnson[/tag] – Eight tackles, seven of them solo.

[tag]Cullen Loeffler[/tag] – Inspired me to teach my kids to deep snap.

[tag]Cory Redding[/tag] – Three solo tackles against the Packers.

[tag]Shaun Rogers[/tag] – First sack of the 2008 season and added six tackles.

[tag]Aaron Ross[/tag] – Four tackles.

[tag]Bo Scaife[/tag] – Without Vince Young, just one catch for six yards.

[tag]Limas Sweed[/tag] – Still no catches in his NFL career. Like Finley, looking at his game logs it appears he’s not even playing.

[tag]David Thomas[/tag] – Picked up his first catch of the year against the Jets, a 14-yarder from Matt Cassel.

[tag]Nathan Vasher[/tag] – Returned punts for the first time in a long while. Had three returns for a total of 21 yards. Added two tackles.

[tag]Ricky Williams[/tag] – After an exciting preseason another ho hum game for Ricky. He had 11 rushes for 28 yards in the Dolphins’ blowout loss to Arizona.

[tag]Roy Williams[/tag] – Just about the same performance as week one: three catches for 48 yards. Looks like Calvin Johnson has become the clear number one target in Detroit, maybe Roy can head down to Tennessee next year as a free agent.

[tag]Selvin Young[/tag] – Was the Broncos’ leading rusher with eight carries for 78 yards, including a big 49-yarder. Also added one catch for eight yards.
