It was a fairly inactive week for former Red Raiders as four NFLers enjoyed Week 9 bye weeks.
Nevertheless, here's how Tech's best fared in Week 9 of the 2012 NFL season:
WR Danny Amendola, St. Louis
Amendola and the Rams enjoyed a bye week. The week off helped the former Tech star further recover from a collarbone injury earlier in the season.
Saint Louis will take on Michael Crabtree and Darcel McBath's San Francisco 49ers team at Candlestick Park.
RB Baron Batch, Pittsburgh
Batch had two carries for seven yards in the Steelers' come-from-behind, 24-20, win against the New York Giants.
The former Tech running back has 46 yards on 24 carries and one touchdown on the season.
WR Michael Crabtree, San Francisco
Crabtree spent his bye week visiting Lubbock and leading the 2012 Tech squad in the Raider Walk as well as spending some time on the Red Raiders' sideline.
The 49ers are 6-2 and will take on Saint Louis this weekend at home.
DE Kenyuta Dawson, Tennessee
Dawson was inactive in the Titans' 51-20 home loss against the Chicago Bears who are arguably the best team in the NFL about midway through the season.
The Titans are 3-6 on the season.
C Dylan Gandy, Detroit
Gandy played sparingly in the Lions' 31-14 win against the Jaguars in Jacksonville.
Gandy played seven plays on special teams, but as a blocker, did not record any stats.
CB Joselio Hanson, Oakland
The former Tech defensive back recorded one hit on quarterback Josh Freeman on a corner blitz but was not credited for any tackles.
On the season, Hanson has 28 tackles and one interception for the 3-5 Raiders.
QB Graham Harrell, Green Bay
Harrell did not play in a 31-17 win against the Arizona Cardinals. The 2008 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm winner is the backup quarterback for Aaron Rodgers and the 6-3 Packers.
S Darcel McBath, San Francisco
McBath was off along with Crabtree for the 49ers bye week.
The Gainesville, Texas, native has two tackles this season.
RG Manny Ramirez, Denver
Ramirez played the backup right guard role for a second week in a row. He was a contributor on an offensive line that allowed the Broncos out to 359 total yards in a 31-23 win at Cincinnati.
RG Louis Vasquez, San Diego
Vasquez started at right guard for the Chargers in a 31-13 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The former offensive line standout helped the Chargers out to 343 total yards and a 4-4 overall record.
WR Wes Welker, New England
Welker and the Patriots also enjoyed a Week 9 bye.
The undersized receiver has 736 yards and two touchdowns on 60 receptions. The Patriots are looking good for the playoffs with a 5-3 record.
