A look at how former South Carolina players fared in the NFL last week.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram continued his reign of terror with another huge performance for Los Angeles, tallying six tackles — two for loss and two sacks, one of which was a strip-sack — two quarterback hits, and a fumble recovery. I’m not too sure about this “SUPAMEL” nickname, but he’s definitely putting in work.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery had a quiet game in Philadelphia’s romp over Arizona, notching three catches for 31 yards.

DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: Clowney had three tackles, including one for loss, and a quarterback hit as Kansas City remained unbeaten and handed the Texans a tough defeat.

WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington had two catches for 30 yards. Houston also tried using him on a trick play with quarterback Deshaun Watson as the intended receiver, but unfortunately the Chiefs sniffed that out and blew it up. Regardless, it’s interesting to see Houston’s willingness to use Ellington in the versatile ways South Carolina did.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook hauled in three catches for 25 yards.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop made a 45-yard field goal and a point after in what was a dismal outing for Tennessee against Miami.

WR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper has clearly settled in at kick return for Los Angeles, bringing back two kicks for 52 yards with a long of 31.
