Knights in the Pros Update: October 12

ORLANDO – While the UCF football team was defeating ECU on Saturday, and a pair of UCF football legends (Blake Bortles and Josh Sitton) were inducted into the UCF Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday, a total of 12 former Knights saw action in the NFL during Week 5, including Richie Grant, who saw extended snaps on defense in a win in London.

Grant recorded a career-high three tackles and had his first-career pass breakup in helping to lead the Atlanta Falcons to a 27-20 win over the New York Jets across the pond on Sunday.

A.J. Bouye, who played in his second game of the season on Sunday, had four tackles, a tackle for loss and a breakup as the Carolina Panthers fell to the Philadelphia Eagles, 21-18. It marked just the fifth-career TFL for the cornerback, who last recorded one as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 22, 2019.
