Follow Alabama players in Week 11 action


Alabama was well represented in another week of pro football as several former Crimson Tide players made contributions for teams across the National Football League.

Four former Alabama players scored touchdowns in Week 11 in quarterback Jalen Hurts (Eagles), running backs Najee Harris (Steelers) and Derrick Henry (Titans), and wide receiver Amari Cooper (Browns). All four players had multiple touchdowns in their respective games, with Henry both rushing and throwing in Thursday’s win over the Packers.

Henry also broke for 1,000 yards that season, becoming the first NFL running back to reach that mark this fall and for the fourth time of his pro career in Tennessee. Josh Jacobs (Raiders), who rushed for 100 yards against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, is two spots behind Henry on the NFL’s rushing yards list and lands third with 930 yards.

A number of former Tide stars also had big days on the defensive side of the ball, as two players intercepted passes in cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey (Ravens) and Levi Wallace (Steelers) and four defenders tallied sacks. Defenseman Jonathan Allen (Commanders) recorded two sacks in Washington’s win over Houston, giving him a 6.5 for the season, which is good for tied 20th in the league. His teammate Daron Payne also has 6.5 sacks.

Quinnen Williams (Jets) leads the Commanders duo by 8.0 sacks (T-10th). Two former Alabama linebackers are also in the top 5 in tackles. Rashaan Evans (Falcons) is second with 106 tackles while CJ Mosley (Jets) is fourth with 97 stops. Safety Eddie Jackson (Bears) has the third most interceptions with four. Humphrey, Wallace, Trevon Diggs (Cowboys) and Minkah Fitzpatrick (Steelers) each have three INTs for an eighth-place share.

He won’t register any sacks or interceptions, but an injured player could soon be making his professional debut as rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams (Lions) returned to practice Monday. Williams has spent the last 10 months rehabilitating the cruciate ligament rupture he suffered in the national title game and is likely to see his first action in December, according to coach Dan Campbell.

As of Week 11, only four teams currently don’t have a former UA player on their 53-man roster – Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. Teams not playing due to bye weeks included the Buccaneers, Dolphins, Jaguars and Seahawks.
