UConn in the NFL: Week 4 report

These are tough times for the UConn alumni on NFL rosters.

A leg injury sent Tyvon Branch of the Oakland Raiders to injured reserve (where he joins fellow former Husky Donald Thomas of the Indianapolis Colts). Then cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Blidi Wreh-Wilson of the Tennessee Titans suffered concussions on Sunday. They join the growing list of UConn products on the injury list as Marcus Easley of the Buffalo Bills missed Sunday's game against Houston and is expected out another 3-5 weeks with a knee injury while an ankle injury has kept Sio Moore out of the last two Oakland Raiders' games.

It wasn't all bad news as four former Huskies (Donald Brown, Kendall Reyes, Dwayne Gratz and Jordan Todman) got into the San Diego/Jacksonville game while Will Beatty continues to show that he is back among the top left tackles in the NFL.

Will Beatty, OT New York Giants: Started in 45-14 win over Washington and was named to the Pro Football Focus Team of the Week.
Donald Brown, RB San Diego: Had 19 yards on 10 carries and 35 yards on four catches in 33-14 win over Jacksonville
