NFL Week 5: A look at how former Spartans fared

Brian Hoyer had become one of the big stories in the early stages of the NFL season.

That story came to an unfortunate halt for the former Spartan quarterback when he was injured in the early stages of a victory over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday. Hoyer is out for the season with a torn ACL.


Hoyer finished 2 of 4 passing for 24 yards and had a run for 11 yards before exiting the game for the Browns. He finished the season with 615 passing yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.

Here’s a look at how other former Spartans fared in the NFL this week.
