Sept. 27, 2013. Seven former Appalachian State University football standouts are currently on active National Football League rosters. Here is a look at how the former Mountaineers fared in Week 3 action:
Jacksonville Jaguars rookie defensive back Demetrius McCray made five total tackles, including three solo stops, and had two pass deflections in the Jaguars’ 45-17 loss at Seattle.
Oakland Raiders eighth-year defensive end Jason Hunter had four tackles, a tackle for loss, a fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry in the Raiders’ 37-21 loss at Denver.
Detroit Lions rookie punter/kicker Sam Martin averaged 52 yards over six punts, including an NFL career-long 72-yarder, in the Lions’ 27-20 win at Washington. Martin also kicked off six times with one touchback.
St. Louis Rams’ second-year wide receiver Brian Quick was targeted four times and had a seven-yard reception in the Rams’ 31-7 loss at Dallas.
New Orleans Saints second-year running back Travaris Cadet saw action on special teams and recorded one tackle in the Saints’ 31-7 win over Arizona.
San Francisco 49ers third-year offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore saw action along the offensive front in the 49ers’ 27-7 loss to Indianapolis.
Carolina Panthers fourth-year wide receiver Armanti Edwards saw action but did not record any statistics in the Panthers’ 38-0 win at the New York Giants.
In all, 10 former Mountaineers are currently on NFL rosters. In addition to the seven members of active 53-man rosters, second-year defensive back DeAndre Presley is now a member of the Carolina Panthers practice squad, rookie running back Steven Miller is on the Detroit Lions’ practice squad and rookie linebacker Jeremy Kimbrough will spend the campaign on the Washington Redskins’ injured-reserve list after sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury during the preseason.
