Utes in the Pros: 2022 NFL Week 2; Week 1 Recap

Sep 15, 2022

SALT LAKE CITY – We are off to the second week of the NFL regular season this week. Heading into the second week of action, Utah will have 16 former Utes suit up for their respective teams, with 23 former players on rosters in the league. 
 
Week one was capped when Cody Barton had a massive game for the Seattle Seahawks. He finished with ten tackles, one tackle for a loss, and 1 QB hurry. Barton's sack came right before halftime, which helped limit Denver to a field goal on the drive. 

 
Ute rookie Devin Lloyd shined in his NFL debut. Lloyd earned the first NFL start of his career last Sunday against Washington and led the Jaguars in tackles with 11. In the fourth quarter, Lloyd blew up a Commander's two-point try that kept Jacksonville in the lead. 

 
The Ute's alums will have two games in week two, where three former Utes will match up against each other. This week, Tyler Huntley and Marcus Williams will face former Ute Eric Rowe in Baltimore. When Arizona heads to Las Vegas, Jackson Barton and Javelin Guidry face off against Leki Fotu.
