Buckeyes in the NFL
By Scott Dame

San Francisco linebacker Larry Grant had big shoes to fill when Patrick Willis could not start on Sunday.

But Grant led the 49ers with 11 total tackles and also broke up one pass as San Francisco dropped to 10-3 with a 21-19 loss to Arizona (6-7).

It was the first start of the season for Grant, who played for Meadowcreek and Norcross High Schools in Norcross, Ga., and Foothill High School in Pleasanton, Calif.

Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins also led his team in tackles.

Jenkins recorded 10 total tackles as New Orleans (10-3) beat Tennessee 22-17 on Sunday. The Titans’ record is now 7-6.

Jenkins, who played at Piscataway (N.J.) High School, ranks second on the Saints with 74 tackles, tailing fellow safety Roman Harper by nine.

Grant and Jenkins are your top Buckeyes in the NFL in Week 14.

Below is a complete list of all former Buckeyes who play in the NFL and their Week 14 stats.
