Eight 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 9 action:


Detroit Lions rookie punter/kicker Sam Martin averaged 44.5 yards over four punts in the Lions' 21-19 win at Chicago. Martin had a game-long punt of 59 yards and pinned one inside the 20. He also sent three of his four kickoffs into the Bears' end zone.


Oakland Raiders eighth-year defensive end Jason Hunter started and made two tackles in the Raiders' 24-20 loss at the New York Giants.


Jacksonville Jaguars rookie defensive back Demetrius McCray made one tackle on special teams in the Jagaurs' 29-27 win at Tennessee.


Newly signed six-year NFL veteran Corey Lynch made one special teams tackle in the Titans' 29-27 loss to Jacksonville.


New Orleans Saints second-year running back Travaris Cadet was lined up as the Saints' kickoff-return man but did not record any statistics in the Saints' 49-17 win over Dallas.


St. Louis Rams second-year wide receiver Brian Quick started but did not record any statistics in the Rams' 38-8 win at Indianapolis.


San Francisco 49ers third-year offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore saw time on the offensive line as both a guard and center in the 49ers' 10-9 loss to Carolina.


Cleveland Browns' fourth-year wide receiver Armanti Edwards had a bye.


In all, 11 former Mountaineers are currently on NFL rosters. In addition to the nine 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.
