Oklahomans in the NFL
Tashard Choice leads Bills with 91 yards on 20 carries. Replaces injured starter C.J. Spiller.
Tashard Choice did not spend much time at Oklahoma, before transferring to Georgia Tech to be closer to family. But he did play a small part in the Sooners' 2004 season — when they finished 12-1 — collecting 100 yards on 22 carries.
On Sunday, at least for now, he became the Buffalo Bills' No. 1 running back. C.J. Spiller suffered a shoulder injury against the Cleveland Browns. And Spiller had recently replaced Fred Jackson, who is still recovering from a knee sprain.
Choice finished with 91 yards on 20 carries as Buffalo beat Cleveland, 24-14. Check out how other NFL players with state ties fared during Week 3:
