With players starting to settle into the NFL season, here’s a look at former Texas Longhorns who stood out during Week 2.

There was a scary moment during Week 2 when former Longhorn Aaron Williams had to be taken off the field in an ambulance after suffering a neck injury during the third quarter of the Patriots-Bills game.
