ProCanes Week 3 Recap: Calais Campbell Breaks Out in Dominant Fashion

Campbell was the star for ProCanes last week. Which other former Canes had great performances in Week 3 of the NFL season?

The NFL season is picking up, as after this weekend’s game are complete, we will have already reached the quarter point of the 2019 season. However, before we jump to Week 4, let’s take a look back at how ProCanes did in Week 3, where there were some stout performers.

Calais Campbell

Campbell was downright abusive to Titans QB Marcus Mariota last Thursday. The Jags defense came up with nine sacks against Tennessee, with the DE being responsible for three of those takedowns. Campbell also recorded seven tackles, four tackles for loss, and five quarterback hits. Campbell was monstrous last Thursday, and was honored as the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Greg Olsen

Despite numerous injuries and his age, Olsen is still playing at a high level, as he played a big role in Carolina’s 35-20 win over Arizona last Sunday. Olsen caught six passes for 75 yards (12.5 yards per reception) and two touchdowns. The 34-year-old, who has 221 yards and two touchdowns on the season, doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

Phillip Dorsett

Dorsett is continuing to develop a rapport with Tom Brady, as the receiver caught six passes for 53 yards (8.8 yards per reception), and one touchdown. Dorsett is already up to three touchdowns this season, and he’s starting to become a regular in this column.

Frank Gore

The man just doesn’t stop, as the 36-year-old churned out 76 yards on 14 carries last Sunday, including this run, which served as the game-winning touchdown for the Bills. Gore has slowed down over the years, but he’s still finding ways to be productive, and he’s helped Buffalo start 3-0.

Allen Hurns

Unfortunately, Hurns was the victim of a nasty tackle, which forced him to leave the game and have to go to the hospital. Hurns laid on the turf for several minutes, before being able to get up, albeit with help from trainers. Hurns, who suffered a concussion, thankfully seems to be ok, which is great considering how brutally he got hit.

All in all, it was a very successful week for ProCanes, as a lot of the old guard turned back the clock to have fantastic performances. It remains to be seen how some of the veterans continue to play, as well as if some of the younger ProCanes can break through and make a difference as the NFL season rolls onto Week 4.
