Griz In The Pros Week 1 Roundup

Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann chases down Bears quarterback Jay Cutler during Atlanta's 30-12 loss on Sunday.

Now that “Monday Night Football” officially ended week 1 of the NFL season last night, its time to take a look back and see how the 9 Montana Grizzly alumni fared.

St. Louis Rams running back Chase Reynolds and Chicago Bears offensive tackle Levi Horn are members of their respective teams’ practice squads this year, which means for the time being, they cannot appear in any regular-season games.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Colt Anderson did appear in Philly’s 31-13 win over the Rams, but did not register any official statistics.

In Miami on Monday night, the Dolphins hosted the New England Patriots, and all three UM players saw the field for the Fins. Running back Lex Hilliard gained one yard rushing on two carries, safety Jimmy Wilson recorded two tackles (one on defense, the other on special teams) and kicker Dan Carpenter was 3-for-3 on point-after kicks, and booted a 20-yard field goal.

Finally in Chicago on Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons fell to the Chicago Bears 30-12. Safety Shann Schillinger finished with 1 special teams tackle. Defensive end Kroy Biermann did as well, but he clearly was the most outstanding Griz on Sunday. In addition to that special teams stop, Biermann defensively registered 1 tackle, 1 assist, 1 tackle for loss, 1 quarterback hit, 1 pass defensed, 1 sack (for a loss of 7 yards), and returned an interception 30 yards for a touchdown.
