Eight former Appalachian State University football student-athletes are currently in the National Football League and six are members of their teams' active 53-
man rosters. Below is a look at how the former Mountaineers fared in Week 9 of NFL action:
WR Armanti Edwards (Carolina Panthers) hauled in a career-long 82-yard pass from QB Cam Newton early in the fourth quarter led to a Panthers' touchdown and helped seal a 21-13 victory over the Washington Redskins.
DB Corey Lynch (San Diego Chargers) recorded one tackle and sealed the Chargers' 31-13 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs when he recovered an onside kick late in the fourth quarter last Thursday night.
RB Travaris Cadet (New Orleans Saints) was featured as the main kickoff and punt returner in New Orleans' 28-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football. Cadet recorded three kickoff returns averaging 26.7 yards, with his longest being a 30-yard return in the second quarter. In the third quarter, Cadet broke a 45-yard burst, but was negated when the Saints were called for holding. Cadet also notched five rushing yards on one carry.
DB DeAndre Presley (Miami Dolphins) saw action as a kickoff returner during the Miami Dolphins' 23-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Presley's only kickoff return was nine yards deep into the endzone and called for a touchback.
WR Brian Quick (St. Louis Rams) and OL Dan Kilgore (San Francisco 49ers) were on their respective bye weeks and will return to action in Week 10.
DE Jason Hunter (Denver Broncos) and LB D.J. Smith (Green Bay Packers) remain on their respective teams' injured reserve lists after suffering season-ending injuries.
