WitP: Mouton, Sopoaga, McBriar, Bess, RGM, Colt

In his first NFL regular-season game and first action since suffering a high ankle sprain on August 18th, Ryan Mouton returned four punts for an average of six yards and a long of 15 in Tennessee's loss to the Texans. However he did muff two of those punts, but was able to recover both of them.

Isaac Sopoaga recorded two tackles in the 49ers victory over the Seahawks.

Mat McBriar had 4 punts for an average of 43.5 yards in the Cowboys' loss to the Giants.

Don't forget that Davone Bess and the Miami Dolphins play the Indianapolis Colts in a Monday Night Football game on ESPN tomorrow.

Over in the CFL, Ryan Grice-Mullen had two big punt returns in the 4th quarter of the BC Lions 23-17 victory over the Toronto Argonauts.
With the game in dire need of some excitement, Ryan Grice-Mullen put together a pair of big back-to-back punt returns early in the fourth quarter. The University of Hawaii grad had returns of 54 and 45 yards to set up field goal attempts on each occasion. Whyte missed from 37-yards, but was good from 32 one his second chance to put the Lions up 20-17 with a little more than 10 minutes left in regulation.
Ryan finished with 4 punt returns for 104 yards, 2 kick returns for 42 yards and 1 catch for 7 yards.

Here's a Q&A with RGM from 24 Hours Vancouver.

And finally John Franz of the Lariat writes that Colt Brennan visited his old college recently. His old junior college!
The Saddleback College football crowd gave a warm welcome to one of its own, Colt Brennan, when the injured Washington Redskins quarterback came back to town recently to watch the Gauchos play.

Brennan led Saddleback to the 2004 Mission Conference Title and went on to a stellar career at the University of Hawaii. Brennan was selected 186th overall in the 15th round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. He saw some action in last year's preseason, but is out for the 2009 season following a preseason injury.

Brennan spent the night watching the Gauchos while standing on the sidelines in crutches.
