Georgia Tech #ProJackets Football Report: Week Eight

Oct. 30, 2017

THE FLATS — Week Eight of the NFL regular season for the Georgia Tech #ProJackets will cap off tonight with four Yellow Jackets in Demaryius Thomas, Adam Gotsis, Harrison Butker and D.J. White suiting up for their respective teams on Monday Night Football.

Sunday’s action, however, included Michael Johnson‘s (one tackle) Cincinnati Bengals edging Chris Milton (one tackle) and the Indianapolis Colts 24-23, while Shaq Mason helped to lead the New England Patriots to a 21-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jeremiah Attaochu did not play for the Chargers, again trying to battle back from injury, while both Morgan Burnett and Derrick Morgan enjoyed much needed bye weeks.

Below is a complete list of the Football #ProJackets currently on NFL rosters.
