During football season, Ole Miss players fight as hard as they can on Saturday in order to build a career that will allow them to play on Sundays.
There are currently 17 former Rebels on active rosters in the NFL and six more on practice squads this year.
Let's take a look to see how some of them played during their 2021 debuts this weekend:
Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox caught four passes for 41 yards in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Carolina Panthers DB Myles Hartsfield recorded two tackles and a pass defensed while DE Marquis Haynes recorded a sack in a win against the New York Jets.
Hartsfield suffered an injury in the win and could be out for some time, NFL Network reported Monday afternoon.
