Washington football has sent many players to the NFL over the years. Here is your monthly update on Huskies currently in the NFC for October 2018.

University of Washington football has a long and glorious tradition of sending players to the NFL. Emerald City Swagger will periodically check in on the progress of Huskies alumni playing at the highest level of professional football. Every fourth week of the month, we will update you on UW players in the NFC. Players in the AFC will be featured during the second week of the month.

NFC East

Philadelphia Eagles: Cornerback Sidney Jones though a backup as I stated in the last update, is now playing the slot corner on passing downs. His biggest game was week five against the Minnesota Vikings. Although the Eagles lost 23-21, he had seven tackles in the game. Jones missed game seven against the Carolina Panthers because of a hamstring injury. He is considered to be week to week.

Josh Perkins, tight end, had four catches in game two against Tampa Bay then another catch in the third game against the Indianapolis Colts. Unfortunately, he hasn’t caught one in the last four games. We hope he has the chance to get one in his next game.

Washington Redskins: Linebacker Mason Foster continues contributing to the team’s defense. He has made 24 tackles in the last three games including nine against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday, in Washington’s 20-17 win. Speaking to the media, after the game, he said the win was a big one against the Cowboys. Right now the Redskins are in first place of the NFC East with a record of 4-2. The only team in the division with a winning record.

The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants don’t have any former Huskies on their rosters.
