Two more former Appalachian State Mountaineers were in the spotlight Sunday afternoon. D.J. Smith, an All-America linebacker during his playing days at Appalachian State University, has been named a starter by head coach Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers. Smith cracked the starting lineup when incumbent starter Desmond Bishop
went down with a hamstring injury in Green Bay's preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers. Bishop will need to have surgery. Smith made four stops in that game. The Packers have also signed running back Cedric Benson.
