Five Former Mean Green Players In Action In Preseason Week 2

Aug. 22, 2016

DENTON -- As the second week of NFL preseason concluded this past week, four of the six former Mean Green players on NFL rosters saw action. New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Cyril Lemon did not appear, while the sixth, Dallas Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar, continues on his road back to recovery following a knee injury he suffered back in Week 4 of last year. Dunbar is expected back at practice this week.

Zach Orr of the Baltimore Ravens recorded a tackle for loss in his team's 19-18 win at Indianapolis on Saturday. He has seen increased action with the first team throughout the first two weeks of the preseason and right now is in the driver's seat for a starting position.

Fullback Jamize Olawale of the Oakland Raiders had three touches in the Raiders' loss at Green Bay last Thursday night; carrying twice for 14 yards and hauling in a catch for two more.

Linebacker Craig Robertson posted four total tackles for the New Orleans Saints in their 16-9 loss at Houston on Saturday night. Two of those tackles were solo, and he also recovered a fumble as he continues his strong preseason.

Another linebacker, Derek Akunne of the Dallas Cowboys posted a solo tackle on Friday night in the Cowboys' preseason home opener in a 41-14 win over the Miami Dolphins.
