Cowboys in the NFL: Week 10
LARAMIE -- Two more former Wyoming Cowboys are back in the NFL.
Last week, the Cleveland Browns signed unrestricted free agent running back Brian Hill. Wyoming's all-time leading rusher didn't play in Sunday's 45-7 loss to the Patriots.
Eddie Yarbrough wasn't unemployed for long.
A week after being cut by San Francisco, the Denver native was picked up this week by his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. Yarbrough, who played in Laramie from 2012-15, did not play in the Vikings 27-20 road win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
Here's how the other former Pokes in the pros did last weekend:
Andrew Wingard -- Safety -- Jacksonville Jaguars
Former Wyoming safety Andrew Wingard tallied three tackles in a 23-17 loss at Indianapolis last Sunday. Wingard, who is in his third season with the Jags, now has 47 tackles, a sack, a pass deflection and an interception in 2021.
Marcus Epps -- Safety -- Philadelphia Eagles
Playing a just couple of hours down the road from where he played his college ball, Marcus Epps racked up a tackle and a pass breakup in a 30-13 blowout win over the Broncos. Epps, a three-year pro and former walk-on at Wyoming, now has 46 tackles and three pass breakups in 10 games.
Carl Granderson -- Defensive end -- New Orleans Saints
Limited throughout the week with a shoulder injury, former Cowboy Carl Granderson finished with two tackles in a 23-21 loss to Tennessee last weekend. The California product has 11 tackles in just six games. He also has a sack and a blocked kick to his credit.
Josh Allen -- Quarterback -- Buffalo Bills
A week after tossing a pair of interceptions in a 9-6 loss to the lowly Jaguars, Josh Allen bounced back in a big way Sunday in the Meadowlands, completing 21-of-28 passes for 366 yards and two scores in a 45-17 victory over the Jets. The former UW quarterback now has 2,602 passing yards to go along with 19 touchdowns.
