Former LSU linebackers Devin White, Deion Jones and Patrick Queen put on shows Sunday in week 15 of the NFL.
White’s Tampa Bay Bucs and Jones’ Atlanta Falcons hooked up in memorable battle in which the Bucs came back from a 17-point third-quarter deficit to record a 31-27 win.
White had 12 tackles including 10 solo with 3 sacks, 4 TFL and 3 QB hits, Jones contributed 10 tackles with 5 solo, 1 TFL, 1 sack, and 2 QB hits.
“I just played instinct football,” White said.” I was seeing some things and took advantage of it. When you play with that edge and confidence, you can really do some spooky things.”
Rookie Queen continued with his fine first season. In the Ravens’ 40-13 win over Jacksonville, Queen had 6 tackles with 4 solo) 3 TFL, 1 sack and 2 QB hits.
Also, former LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire of the Kansas City Chiefs was enjoying a tremendous homecoming game in the Merecdes-Benz Superdome in KC’s 32-29 win over the New Orleans Saints when was twisted awkwardly as he was tackled late in the game.
He had to be helped off the field with an apparent leg/hip injury.
“So, as far as injuries go, Clyde (Edwards-Helaire) got twisted up into the splits,” Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid said afterwards. “He got stretched. I think you kind of saw that, where he did the splits. His leg is sore, both legs are kind of sore. He’s going in evaluation right now, he already got the X-rays done and those were negative.”Right now, the X-rays are negative, we’ll just evaluate him as we go.”
