Vols in the NFL Week One Recap

Credit: UT Athletics

Knoxville, Tenn.– Week one of the NFL’s 2019-20 regular season wrapped up on Monday night with 32 Vols represented on 20 NFL rosters and practice squads. Highlighting the Vols in the NFL’s opening weekend were VFLs Alvin Kamara, Shy Tuttle and Jason Witten.

Kamara had a productive week-one outing, accumulating 169 all-purpose yards. He collected 97 yards on 13 carries, adding seven catches for 72 yards in the New Orleans Saints’ 30-28 win over the Houston Texans. Kamara’s efforts were highlighted by a 41-yard reception and a 28-yard rush in a game where the VFLs were well represented with a pair of Vols on each sideline seeing action on Monday.

Tuttle, after going undrafted, got the starting nod on the defensive line for the Saints. In his NFL debut, he notched half a sack.

After a one-year stint in the broadcasting booth, Witten returned to the gridiron. In the first game of his 16th season, Witten had three catches for 15 yards, punctuated by a four-yard touchdown reception.
