WVU Pros NFL Week 8 Recap

 (Frederick Breedon / AP)
  I told you yesterday about the role Steve Slaton played for the Miami Dolphins this past weekend. Now I will give you a rundown about how other former Mountaineers played over the weekend, or if they played.

Owen Schmitt- Philadelphia Eagles
  The Eagles routed the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football 34-7. Owen Schmitt provided his customary blocking for Michael Vick and helping to open holes for LaSean McCoy who had a huge game finishing with 185 yards on 34 carries. Most of the time, McCoy lined up in the backfield as a single back. Schmitt was thrown to once by Vick in a goal-to-go situation, but was overthrown. Schmitt did not play much, and was only on the field for six snaps.
Adam Pacman Jones- Cincinnati Bengals
  Jones returned to live action for the first time in over a year since injuring his neck against the Atlanta Falcons last season. He did not play for long. He returned a punt for 63-yards in the first half, but pulled up lame on the play with a hamstring injury. He did not return to action, but says he will be ready by next week.

Pat McAfee- Indianapolis Colts
  The Colts are at the head of the 'Suck For Luck' train as one of the worst teams in the League. With Payton Manning out indefinitely, and now Kerry Collins on IR, there is not much hope in Indy for having a strong second half of the season. Pat McAfee had a punt in the end zone blocked by Tennessee Titan Patrick Bailey that was recovered by Jason McCourty for a touchdown. McAfee did record a special teams tackle, and continues to lead the League among kickers in tackles with four.
Chris Neild- Washington Redskins
  Neild did not break into the stat column for the Redskins in their blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills. With the Redskins season starting to slip away, look for Neild to get more playing time as the team tries to develop him.
Ryan Mundy- Pittsburgh Steelers 
  Mundy recorded 5 tackles in the Steelers victory over the New England Patriots. An injury to Lamarr Woodley may lead to an increase in Mundy's playing time in the coming weeks.
Mortty Ivy-League Pittsburgh Steelers 
  Ivy was signed from the Steelers practice squad on Saturday and was part of the active roster for yesterday's game. He did not break onto the state sheet.
Anthony Becht- Kansas City Chiefs 
  After getting re-signed to the Chiefs last week, Becht was inactive in the Chiefs overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football.
