How Former Eagles Fared in Week 5 of the XFL

The XFL is officially halfway through its regular season. The re-booted league is littered with former Eagles across the league, and with not a lot of Eagles news happening this time of year, we will be monitoring how the former Eagles are performing. If you need a recap of which Eagles appeared on the stat sheets so far, you can look back at our previous articles: Week 1

This week, 12 former Eagles got their names on the official scorecards. Here's what the Week 5 stats showed:

LB Asantay Brown (Dallas)

• seven tackles

DT Gabe Wright (Houston)

• four tackles (one for loss), one sack

CB Josh Hawkins (Dallas) • three tackles, one interception, one pass defended

*Note: Hawkins is T-2nd in the XFL in interceptions (2)
