Here are three former Razorbacks who stood out in week two of the NFL regular season…
Wise’s Big Day
After combining with Trey Flowers for the only three sacks in the season opener, Deatrich Wise recorded the only sack by the Patriots Sunday, an eight yard loss, to give him a sack in his first two games of his career, making him the only Patriot to record a sack in each of the first two games of the season.

Wise also recorded two tackles, two tackles for loss and five of the Patriots seven quarterback hits. His five quarterback hits moves his season total to six. The rest of the team has five on the season combined.
His two tackles for loss was a team-high, improving his season total to three. The only other Patriot with more than one through two games is Flowers with two.
Deatrich Wise is an absolute beast. It’s kind of crazy.

Collins’ Raven’s Debut
After being cut by the Seattle Seahawks prior to the season, the Baltimore Ravens picked up Alex Collins off of wavers to add to their practice squad. On Saturday, the Ravens decided to elevate his status to active and place him on the 53-man roster.
We have placed CB Sheldon Price on IR and waived RB Jeremy Langford. We have signed RB Alex Collins & CB Tony McRae from the practice squad.

In his Raven’s debut, Collins split back-up carries with Terrance West, touching the ball seven times for 42 yards, a 6.0 average. Two of his rushes went for first downs, including his first touch that went for 16 yards.
Back To His Old Ways
After not being targeted in the season opener, tight end Hunter Henry picked up the start on Sunday, leading all Charger tight ends in receiving with a career-high seven receptions for 80 yards, including a 17-yard catch with 55 seconds remaining, to set up a potential game-winning field goal.
