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

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

RB Mike Davis, Seahawks: Davis led Seattle’s rushing attack with 16 carries for 64 yards, with a long of 22, and added four catches for 37 yards as the Seahawks took down the high-flying Eagles. After being cut from the 49ers and added to the Seahawks’ practice squad earlier this season, he looks to be proving he was worth his promotion to the active roster. It’s been a nice turnaround for him so far.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles: Jeffery was second on the team with four receptions for 61 yards as Philadelphia took a somewhat surprising loss to Seattle.

CB Stephon Gilmore, Patriots: Gilmore had three tackles and two passes defensed for New England in its win against Buffalo. Perhaps most impressively, he achieved a position reaction out of Bill Belichick:

DE Jadeveon Clowney, Texans: After having a monster month, Clowney cooled off a bit with three tackles, including a tackle for loss, as Houston fell to Tennessee.

WR Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington had one catch for seven yards, but pulled his hamstring early in the game and has since been placed on injured reserve.

DB Johnathan Joseph, Texans: Joseph had four tackles, including a tackle for loss.

DE Melvin Ingram, Chargers: Ingram compiled four tackles, including two tackles for loss, and a quarterback hit for Los Angeles in its win against Cleveland.

S D.J. Swearinger, Redskins: Swearinger was second on the team with six tackles for Washington in its loss to rival Dallas.

K Ryan Succop, Titans: Succop hit all three of his extra points and was 1-of-2 on his field goal attempts, nailing a 43-yarder.

WR Damiere Byrd, Panthers: After fracturing his forearm earlier in the season, Byrd returned to the active roster and made one catch for 12 yards.

DB Captain Munnerlyn, Panthers: Munnerlyn tallied two tackles for Carolina in its loss to New Orleans.

S Darian Stewart, Broncos: Stewart notched five tackles for Denver in its blowout win against Miami.

TE Jared Cook, Raiders: Cook was quiet for Oakland in its victory against the Giants, making one catch for nine yards.

PR/KR Pharoh Cooper, Rams: Cooper had a fairly busy day for Los Angeles, logging a rushing attempt for six yards, two kick returns for 34 yards (long of 21) and four punt returns for 60 yards (long of 30) as the Rams rolled the Cardinals.
