Nine 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 3 of NFL action:
WR Armanti Edwards (Carolina Panthers) returned a kickoff for 27 yards, but due to a holding penalty, the return was negated to 21 yards.

LB D.J. Smith (Green Bay Packers) continued to impress, finishing with four total tackles in a losing effort on Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. Smith's best play of the night came

on a 3rd-and-1 play when he stopped Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson behind the line of scrimmage, forcing a fourth down.

DB Corey Lynch (San Diego Chargers) recorded one full tackle in San Diego's 27-3 loss against Atlanta. Lynch assisted on a special teams punt and later assisted on a fourth-quarter tackle on Atlanta's Jason Snelling.

OL Daniel Kilgore helped San Francisco on short-yardage attempts, reporting eligible on three plays, including a pass to 49ers TE Vernon Davis for a touchdown.

WR Brian Quick was inactive for St. Louis' Week 3 match up with Chicago.

RB Travaris Cadet was inactive for New Orleans' Week 3 match up against Kansas City.

DB DeAndre Presley (Miami Dolphins) and DB Mark LeGree (Atlanta Falcons) both remain on their respective practice squads.

DE Jason Hunter (Denver Broncos) remains on the injured reserve list after suffering a season-ending injury to his biceps.
