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 2 of NFL action:

LB D.J. Smith made his second-consecutive start at middle linebacker for the Green Bay Packers and tied for the team lead with seven total tackles in a 23-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Thursday night. Smith notched his first sack of the year on the Packers' first defensive play of evening when he dropped Bears' QB Jay Cutler for a 13-yard loss.

DB Corey Lynch made a tackle on a kickoff in the San Diego Chargers' 38-10 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

WR Brian Quick was targeted for his first NFL pass in the second quarter of the St. Louis Rams' 31-28 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday but was not able to haul in the reception.

WR Armanti Edwards (Carolina Panthers) and OL Daniel Kilgore (San Francisco 49ers) were active for their teams' respective wins over the New Orleans Saints and Detroit Lions but did not record any statistics.

RB Travaris Cadet was inactive for the Saints' loss at Carolina.

Additionally, defensive backs Mark LeGree and DeAndre Presley are members of the Atlanta Falcons' and Miami Dolphins' practice squads, respectively, and seventh-year DE Jason Hunter will miss the entire 2012 season after being placed on the injured reserve by the Denver Broncos due to a biceps injury sustained during the preseason.
