With six players drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft, the contingent of former Vols in the league grew significantly. Let’s take a look at how former Tennessee stars performed during Week 6 of the NFL season.

Baltimore Ravens

Morgan Cox: Cox contributed to the Ravens in their 27-24 to the Bears in overtime.

Carolina Panthers

Cincinnati Bengals

Josh Malone: The Bengals were on a bye this week. While Malone has been inactive, good news could be on the way for the Tennessee native. Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is expected to miss a couple of weeks. This could lead to Malone dressing out and receiving some playing time.

Cleveland Browns
