Bannon, McCarthy make NFL debuts

Shane Bannon had two carries, including the first one of the game, for two yards and was the starting fullback in the Kansas City Chiefs' 25-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday.

Bannon was not the only member of last year's Yale team to make his NFL debut on Friday as defensive end Tom McCarthy had one solo tackle in the Atlanta Falcons' 28-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

A third member of the 2010 Bulldogs wasn't as fortunate as tight end Chris Blohm was cut by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, three days after he was signed as an undrafted free agent. At the time that he was signed by San Francisco, his agents told me in an e-mail that he was planning to work out for the St. Louis Rams so it will be interesting to see if the Rams show any interest in Blohm.
