The NFL regular season kicked off Wednesday and with the rest of Week 1 scheduled for Sunday I realized I never rounded up which former WSU football players made 53-man rosters.
Thirteen former players were in training camp this season and eight are currently on active rosters. Here is the full rundown of the Cougs who made 53-man rosters.
- Marcus Trufant, Seattle Seahawks
- Brandon Gibson, St. Louis Rams
- Ropati Pitoitua, Kansas City Chiefs
- Erik Coleman, Detroit Lions
- Jason Hanson, Detroit Lions
- Rian Lindell, Buffalo Bills
- Jed Collins, New Orleans Saints
- Chris Ivory, New Orleans Saints
Jerome Harrison remains on the reserve/illness list in Detroit while Alex Hoffman-Ellis, Eric Frampton, Jason Hill and Zack Williams were released. Williams is currently on the Carolina Panthers practice squad. The other three players remain free agents.
