Six 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 6 action:

St. Louis Rams' second-year wide receiver Brian Quick returned to North Carolina for the first time as a pro and caught two passes for for a career-high 97 yards in the Rams' 30-15 loss at Carolina. He had a career-long 73-yard reception set up a four-yard touchdown run by Zac Stacy.

Detroit Lions rookie punter/kicker Sam Martin averaged 43.3 yards over four punts, including three pinned inside the 20 and a game-long of 65 yards, in the Lions' 27-24 loss to Cincinnati. Martin recorded his first career tackle on special teams and also sent four of his five kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks.

San Francisco 49ers third-year offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore saw action along the offensive front as a guard and a center in the 49ers' 31-17 win at Tennessee.

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie defensive back Demetrius McCray saw action but did not record any statistics in the Jags' 24-6 loss to the Chargers.

New Orleans Saints second-year running back Travaris Cadet and Oakland Raiders eighth-year defensive end Jason Hunter enjoyed bye weeks.

In all, nine former Mountaineers are currently on NFL rosters. In addition to the six members of active 53-man rosters, second-year defensive back DeAndre Presley is 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.
