Frogs in the NFL: Week 1




Sept. 15, 2010

The 2010 NFL season opened last week, and six former Frogs saw extensive action. Leading the offensive players was running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who rushed for 62 yards and made two receptions in his first game playing for the New York Jets. Rookie linebacker Daryl Washington helped the Arizona Cardinals record a 1-0 with six solo tackles while starting in his first regular-season contest. Overall, the 11 former TCU players' teams combined to go 5-6 on the opening weekend.
