Mountaineers in the Pros

A Few Former Mountaineers Remain Part of NFL Playoff Field



Bills DB Rasul Douglas part of NFL Playoffs

Several former Mountaineers started the NFL postseason with a chance at the Super Bowl, but only a few remain after the Wild Card Round.

David Long, Tony Field II and even the late addition to the group of WVU products in the playoffs, Bruce Irvin are all now back at home. However, Colton McKivitz, Rasul Douglas and Daryl Worley’s teams are still alive.

McKivitz’s 49ers are coming off a bye as the NFC’s top seed and will face the seven seeded Packers Saturday night. He hopes to once again help anchor San Francisco’s offensive line as the 49ers hope to make another deep run in the playoffs.

The Bills and Douglas will host the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs to close the weekend on Sunday. Buffalo defeated the Steelers in their first playoff game. Douglas is the only former Mountaineer playing in this postseason who already has a Super Bowl ring. He won with the Eagles after the 2017 season during his rookie year.

As for Worley, the Ravens will meet the Cinderella Houston Texans in Baltimore on Saturday.

Is your favorite NFL team still playing or will you be rooting on one of these WVU football alums on?
