UConn alumni report: Week 8

It was a Sunday to remember for a couple of former Huskies.

Fullback Anthony Sherman had a 12-yard touchdown reception for his first career regular-season touchdown (he had a TD reception in a preseason game in a win over Oakland when he played for Arizona). It was Sherman's fourth game this season with multiple catches as he has helped Kansas City remain the only undefeated team in the NFL.

Sio Moore had a pair of sacks in Oakland's 21-18 win over Pittsburgh giving him three sacks in the Raiders' last two games.

Here's the breakdown of how the UConn products fared last week:

Will Beatty, OT New York Giants: Started in 15-7 win over Philadelphia
Tyvon Branch, S Oakland : Did not play (leg)
Donald Brown, RB Indianapolis: Bye week
Darius Butler, CB Indianapolis: Bye week
Marcus Easley, WR Buffalo: Had two tackles in 35-17 loss to New Orleans
Dwayne Gratz, CB Jacksonville: Had five tackles in 42-10 loss to San Francisco
Ryan Griffin, TE Houston: Bye week
Robert McClain, CB Atlanta: Returned two punts for 27 yards in 27-13 loss to Arizona
Sio Moore, LB Oakland: Had six tackles and two sacks in 21-18 win over Pittsburgh

North of the border, Larry Taylor surpassed the 3,000-yard mark in career punt return yards and is now 191 yarrds away from becoming the seventh CFL player with 5,000 career kickoff return yards. He leads the CFL with 1,998 combined return yards this season helping Calgary post a 14-3 record and clinch the Western Division title..
