A Weak NFL-FIU Second Week

For those FIU football alums trying to get some NFL traction, Week 2 of the NFL preseason was ice.

In Minnesota, defensive tackle Isame Faciane spent his time on the field getting stood up by Arizona guard Anthony Steen, out of Alabama. Faciane had a couple of good plays including being one of several pass rushers who made Arizona's line resemble the just-opened doors to a Popeye's. But after Steen tossed Faciane down on a pass rush, he was taken out for several plays. Then again, it might have been normal rotation.  

Defensive tackle Greg Hickman had a tackle assist and a declined hands to the face penalty for the Lions against Oakland.

In the Cornerback Camp Bodies line, Sam Miller had two fourth quarter tackles on Pittsburgh receptions for Buffalo. Junior Mertile, now in Houston, had a tackle on a 24-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter against Atlanta.
