Injuries were a common theme for former Alabama players in the NFL this week as Washington safety Landon Collins could be out for the season after suffering what is believed to be an Achilles injury, and Arizona running back Kenyan Drake will likely be out for a few weeks with a slight tear of a ligament in his ankle.

5] Derrick Henry, RB,  Titans

It wasn't his best day, but Henry still had 20 carries for 75 yards and a touchdown against the Steelers.

4] Jonathan Allen, DL, Washington 

Allen only had two tackles, including one for a loss, but was credited with scoring a safety off a hit and fumble by Collins in a win against the Cowboys. 

3] Julio Jones, WR, Falcons 

Jones had eight catches for 97 yards while the Falcons took another tough loss, this time to the Lions. He then made it clear that he doesn't want to be traded from Falcons as some have speculated as a possibility. "I know what I mean to this team," he said. 

2] Ronnie Harrison, S, Browns 

After missing the previous week due to a concussion, Harrison returned to the lineup and posted nine tackles, a sack and a pass breakup in the 27-24 win over the Bengals.

1] Eddie Jackson, S, Bears

Jackson scored his team's only touchdown during Monday Night Football with a short scoop-and-score off a fumble caused by linebacker Robert Quinn. He tied Mike Brown for the most career fumble return touchdowns in Bears history.  

Jackson finished with nine tackles, including eight solo, but hurt his knee while jumping around during a celebration. He did return, however it was that kind of a week for former Crimson Tide players in the NFL.
