While some NFL Dawgs such as Sony Michel and AJ Green have been bitten by the injury bug, others continue to shine in a big way, something that, make no mistake about it, is being used as a recruiting tool by Georgia’s staff in living rooms of prospects.
In Chicago, the Bears are on the way to new version of the Monsters of the Midway with a major boost from some former Dawgs. Not only did Leonard Floyd run back an interception, but Roquan Smith had 13 tackles and forced a fumble in a 31-9 win over Buffalo, which last week signed Isaiah McKenzie.
