Huskers in the NFL - Week 4

By NU Athletic Communications
Two pairs of Huskers helped their teams stay undefeated as 18 former Nebraska players saw action during Week 4 of the 2009 NFL season.

Denver's Correll Buckhalter and Russ Hochstein both contributed in the Broncos' last-second 17-10 victory over Dallas, as Buckhalter registered 92 yards of total offense (37 rushing, 55 receiving), while Hochstein started on the Denver offensive line (left guard). On the season, Buckhalter is averaging 7.2 yards per rush for the AFC West-leading Broncos, a 2.5 yard increase from his career average (4.7).

The New Orleans Saints also lead their division (NFC South) with a 4-0 record with the help of contributions from linebacker Scott Shanle and left guard Carl Nicks. Shanle started his 27th consecutive game and totaled five tackles in the Saints' 24-10 win against the New York Jets, with Nicks earning his 17th straight start on the offensive line.

Kansas City's Mike Brown and Demorrio Williams turned in two of the best individual efforts of the week. Brown had nine tackles, including one sack on New York Giants' quarterback Eli Manning, while Williams also totaled nine stops with a pass deflection.

Chicago's Zackary Bowman and Josh Bullocks both saw action in the Bears' 48-24 victory over Detroit. Bowman has been one of the Bears' top defenders this season and registered four tackles, while Bullocks made one stop on special teams.

A total of 33 former Nebraska players are on National Football League rosters as of Oct. 5, 2009. Of the 33 players, 23 players are active, while three are on injured reserve and seven are on practice squads.
