Week One of the NFL season in is the books. Below we will recap how the former Gophers in the NFL did for their teams, and any roster changes from last week. We have one player who was still looking for a job gain one, and unfortunately we have one player who suffered a season ending injury and will need to wait until 2019 to get back on the field. Here is what happened in Week One in the NFL.

Gray never even got to play in week one against the Titans because one day after being named the Dolphins starting tight end he tore his achilles tendon in practice ending his season. He was put on Injured Reserve and won’t see the field again until the fall of 2019. Ouch.
