Terps in the pros - checking in on former Maryland football players in the NFL

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We continue our periodic check-in on how former Maryland football players are doing in the NFL this season.

Alright, here is your latest update on Maryland players in the NFL. Nick Novak and Vernon Davis had some impressive games over the last week.

Player NFL Team Position Notes
Lance Ball N/A RB Ball was cut by the Broncos and is still a free agent.
Bruce Campbell N/A OT Waived by Panthers on 8/25/13 and still currently a free agent.
Devonte Campbell N/A FB Waived by Atlanta on 8/31/13 and still currently a free agent.
Nolan Carroll Miami Dolphins CB Nolan continues to start for Miami and has been playing well. He's working to show he belongs as a starting NFL corner.
Jon Condo Oakland Raiders Long Snapper Condo continues to snap the ball a lot for the Raiders because they punt a lot. Continuing to do a great job.
Phil Costa Dallas Cowboys Center The play of Mackenzy Bernadeau has allowed the Cowboys to continue to keep Phil Costa inactive on gamedays.
Vernon Davis San Francisco 49ers TE VD might have had the best week of any former Terp, as he finished with a career high 180 yards receiving and hauled in two TDs.
Kevin Dorsey N/A WR Dorsey was injury waived by the Packers and is done for the season.
Darin Drakeford N/A LB Drakeford was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs on 8/31/13 but later signed to their practice squad.
Moise Fokou Tennessee Titans LB Fokou is continuing to start at MLB for Tennessee but recently accused Chargers players of trying to break his arm last week, which caused him to react and drew an unnecessary roughness penality.
A.J. Francis New England Patriots DT After the New England Patriots put in a waiver claim on Francis, he was later cut by New England but re-signed and joined their practice squad, where he remains today.
Matt Furstenburg Baltimore Ravens TE Furstenburg remains on the Ravens' practice squad.
Demetrius Hartsfield N/A

LB Hartsfield had a tryout with the Green Bay Packers this week.
Jared Gaither N/A

OT After Gaither was cut by San Diego, he has continued to remain unemployed. Maybe this is the reason why. It's probably also why Gaither wasn't resigned by Baltimore.
Erin Henderson Minnesota Vikings LB Erin will continue to be the Vikings' middle linebacker.
Darrius Heyward-Bey Indianapolis Colts WR Heyward-Bey is still struggling a little bit this season. He's improved a lot on his down field blocking, but he still hasn't been super productive yet as a WR for the Colts.
Shaun Hill Detroit Lions QB Shaun Hill continues to be the backup in Detroit.
D'Qwell Jackson Cleveland Browns LB D'Qwell continues to be awesome for a surprisingly decent Cleveland Browns team.
Nick Novak San Diego Chargers K

Novak was the other Terp who had a great day last week, hitting four field goals, including a 51 yarder that put the game away for the Chargers.

Adam Podlesh Chicago Bears P Podlesh continues to punt like a champ.
Da'Rel Scott New York Giants RB Scott was injury waived by the Giants. I feel really bad for Scott. He got an opportunity in NY and to then get injured sucks. Football can be a cruel game.
Torrey Smith Baltimore Ravens WR Despite Torrey Smith doing a great job taking over as the Ravens #1 receiver, he was held to just 1 catch for 12 yards against the Packers, despite Flacco throwing for almost 350 yards.
Randy Starks Miami Dolphins DT Starks is apparently playing hard so he can earn a new contract. Just make sure you take care of your alma mater, Randy.
Joe Vellano New England Patriots DT Vellano is learning about what it takes to be an NFL starter on the fly this season.
Edwin Williams N/A OT Williams was cut by the Bears but recently had a tryout with the Texans.
LaQuan Williams N/A WR LaQuan reached an injury settlement with the Ravens. There is a chance the Ravens could bring him back in the future.
Josh Wilson Washington Redskins CB Josh is doing good things for cancer survivors.
Will Yeatman Miami Dolphins OT Yeatman might soon see some more action as the Dolphins ponder shuffling their o-line following their bye week.

Kenneth Tate, Dan Gronkowski, Madieu Williams, and Kevin Barnes are all free agents right now. Anyone else?
