Vols in the NFL – Week 10 Update

Week 10 of NFL action is in the books for former Tennessee Volunteers in the NFL. The game weekend was marked by a historic game overseas involving two VFLs, rookies who continued to have success in Year 1 and a milestone achieved for a West Coast wideout.

At 9:30 a.m. ET Sunday, the first ever NFL regular-season game got underway on German soil when Justin Coleman and Darrell Taylor moved into the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany — normally home to Bayern Munich. Both former Vols found the stat sheet as they each recorded an in-game tackle on a monumental day for football and the sport that was growing in popularity internationally.

Rookies Theo Jackson and Alontae Taylor continue to impress in secondary as Jackson recorded his first multi-tackle game of his career in a thrilling 33-30 comeback win in overtime for the Minnesota Vikings. Similarly, Alontae Taylor notched a season-high six tackles for the New Orleans Saints against Pittsburgh. The first-year cornerback, who has started his last four games, is yet to concede a touchdown this season.

On the offensive side of the ball, Jauan Jennings achieved a career milestone with San Francisco’s 22-16 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. He had four receptions for 40 yards in the game and notched his 500th NFL receiving yard in his sophomore year in the league.

In roster news, Josh Malone signed with the Steelers practice team last Tuesday. It’s his first NFL contract this season after spending the second half of 2021 on the Green Bay practice team.
