Here's a look at what some former Tigers did last week in the NFL.
St. Louis Rams
Alexander recently replaced injured WR Mark Clayton on the Rams roster. Alexander's Week 6 NFL debut showed signs of a promising career as the former Mizzou WR snagged four receptions for 72 yards and made an impressive touchdown catch against San Diego.
New Orleans Saints
Daniel continues to hold the No. 1 backup spot behind Super-Bowl MVP Drew Brees. Daniel has yet to see any action this season, other than holding for a field goal attempt early in the season.
Gage continues to battle a hamstring injury and sat out for a second-straight week, missing the Monday night matchup vs. Jacksonville.
Hood did not see action in Pittsburgh's first matchup after their bye week against Cleveland. On the year, Hood has collected two tackles, and remains second on the depth chart at defensive end.
While former teammate Alexander had a breakout NFL debut, Maclin had huge game against a Falcons defense that includes two of his former teammates. William Moore and Sean Weatherspoon watched as Maclin caught seven passes for 159 yards, both career highs. Maclin also found the endzone twice, including an 83-yard TD reception. With other receiver starter DeSean Jackson out with a concussion, Maclin could see a lot more looks from QB Kevin Kolb. Maclin currently ranks second in the NFL in reception touchdowns, and 15th in total receiving yards.
After taking over the starting safety position for the Falcons, Moore has been very productive. In Sunday's loss against the Eagles, Moore accumulated four tackles, and had an interception, returning it 34 yards.
San Francisco 49ers
Smith racked up his usual numbers against the Raiders after coming off of a two-sack game against the Eagles. The 10-year veteran totaled four tackles in a win over Oakland.
New York Jets
Smith continued his role as a strong utility player for the Jets this year, rushing three times for 18 yards. On the year, Smith has 101 yards receiving on 11 catches.
Weatherspoon sat out of Sunday's game against the Bengals due to a knee sprain. Despite this setback, Weatherspoon has had a very successful rookie year thus far. In just four games played, Weatherspoon has 25 tackles and one sack.
