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 11 action:




New Orleans Saints second-year running back Travaris Cadet took a kickoff three yards deep in the Saints' endzone and returned it 82 yards to the 49ers' 21-yard line, setting up a short third-quarter touchdown drive that helped lift the Saints to a 23-20 win over San Francisco.


Newly signed third-year linebacker D.J. Smith was active for the Texans on Sunday and made one tackle on special teams in the Texans' 28-23 loss to Oakland.


Detroit Lions rookie punter/kicker Sam Martin averaged 45 yards on three punts, including a game-long of 59 yards, and sent all five of his kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks in the Lions' 37-27 loss at Pittsburgh. Martin also recorded the first rush of his career, picking up three yards on a fake field-goal attempt.


Oakland Raiders eighth-year defensive end Jason Hunter had a tackle for loss in the Raiders' 28-23 win at Houston.


Cleveland Browns' fourth-year wide receiver Armanti Edwards returned two punts for 14 yards and also took a snap at quarterback in the "wildcat" formation and rushed for no gain in the Browns' 41-20 loss at Cincinnati.


San Francisco 49ers third-year offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore saw time on the offensive line as both a guard and center in the 49ers' 23-20 loss at New Orleans.


Jacksonville Jaguars rookie defensive back Demetrius McCray was active but did not record any statistics in the Jaguars' 27-14 loss to Arizona.


Tennessee Titans sixth-year defensive back Corey Lynch was active but did not record any statistics in the Titans' 30-27 loss to Indianapolis on Thursday night.


St. Louis Rams second-year wide receiver Brian Quick had a bye.


In all, 12 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.
