How the former Wyoming Cowboys fared in week 4 of the NFL season | national
Thursday Night Football felt a bit like Friday night to Casper viewers.
Two Natrona County High graduates, Logan Wilson and Taven Bryan, were on the field in Cincinnati’s 24-21 win over Jacksonville.
Wilson, former Wyoming linebacker, led the Bengals with 10 tackles and a sack of No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence. He leads the Bengals 3-1 with 40 tackles and three interceptions.
Bryan hasn’t recorded any stats for the Jaguars.
Jacksonville safety Andrew Wingard, former Wilson UW teammate, finished with seven tackles, including five solo saves. Close end Jacob Hollister, another UW alumnus, had a five-yard reception for the struggling Jags (0-4).
Here’s a look at how other former Wyoming Cowboys currently on the NFL rosters fared in Week 4:
