Former Miami Hurricanes have had a great start to the season and it was no different in week two. Several ‘Canes made significant impacts for their teams. Let’s take a look at a few of the standouts.
RB Frank Gore, Buffalo Bills
Frank Gore is already an all-time great NFL running back. He added to that pedigree Sunday with his first touchdown as a Buffalo Bill. All-in-all, Gore had 19 carries for 68 yards in week two, and added two receptions for 15 yards to that total.
TE Greg Olsen
Greg Olsen had a fantastic game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football. Olsen had six receptions for 110 yards and was a standout for the Panthers offense, which otherwise struggled for much of the game.
WR Phillip Dorsett
Dorsett had a quieter second week of the season as compared to week one, but he still had three receptions for 39 yards against the Miami Dolphins. More notable is what Dorsett has accomplished over the past year...

153.2 passer rating on targets
TE David Njoku
Njoku had a touchdown in week one, but was on the receiving end of a scary hit on Monday Night Football against the Jets this week. Njoku left after the hit, which occurred in the first quarter, and didn’t return due to concussion like symptoms. Fortunately, later on in the night Njoku tweeted that he was okay...

DE Al-Quadin Muhammad
Muhammad has made a great impact for the Indianapolis Colts’ defense through two weeks. After a solid performance with a tackle for loss in week one against the Chargers the third year player followed it up with a four tackle performance in which he forced a fumble against the Titans in week two.
Miami players have made huge impacts across the league through the first two weeks of the season and they’ll continue to as another season of NFL football rolls on.
