Eight of the thirteen NFL players that formerly attended UC saw the field in week two. One of those players did not find his way into the stat column. Three were inactive and two are on the outside looking in. Lets see how former Cats did this weekend and last night.

Jason Kelce and the Eagles offensive line helped QB Nick Foles throw for 331 yards and run for another 22 yards. Kelce also played a role in the RB-duo of LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles picking up 105 yards on the ground.

Despite falling short to the Broncos on Sunday, Travis Kelce caught four passes for 81 yards. He was the leading receiver for Alex Smith and the Chiefs. The 2012 Belk Bowl hero now has 7 receptions for 130 yards through the first two weeks.

Connor Barwin picked up 1 tackle, putting him at five for the year while his teammate Trent Cole forced another fumble as well as getting 2 tackles. Cole forced the fumble on Colts RB Trent Richardson on Indy's second drive but it was recovered by WR Reggie Wayne. Cole now has 6 tackles, 1 sack and 2 forced fumbles on the short season.

Derek Wolfe got one tackle in the win over Kansas City. A slow start to the season for Wolfe with only three tackles in the two victories.

Kevin Huber got on the field four times despite Cincinnati handling Atlanta, 24-10. Of Huber's four punts, he pinned two of them inside the twenty yard-line making the Falcons attempt to go more than 80 yards twice against a stout Bengal defense.

Mike Windt and the Chargers punting unit seen the field three times on Sunday which is not bad when going against one of the best defenses in the league.

Brent Celek did not pick up any stats last night and is now being surpassed by Zach Ertz in snaps for Philadelphia. Jeff Linkenbach remains behind RG Zach Fulton on the depth chart in Kansas City. Adrien Robinson has yet to record any statistics thus far and is third on the Giants depth chart at TE. Kenbrell Thompkins was a healthy scratch for New England, who routed Minnesota by 23 points on Sunday. Ricardo Mathews was also a healthy scratch for San Diego. Lastly, John Hughes remains inactive for the Browns with his hamstring injury.
