A total of 10 Arizona State Sun Devils found themselves on NFL rosters last week with second-year wideout N’Keal Harry standing out, hauling in five catches for 39 yards for the New England Patriots in the team’s 21-11 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Lawrence Guy

Harry’s teammate, defensive end Lawrence Guy, plugged gaps along the Patriots’ defensive line on Sunday, making four tackles, while helping hold Miami to 87 rushing yards in the team’s opening week victory.

Matt Haack

Miami Dolphins punter Matt Haack starred, opposite Harry and Guy, kicking three punts a total of 152 yards, averaging 50.7 yards per attempt (the fourth-longest average in the league).

Zane Gonzalez

Arizona Cardinals place kicker and former Lou Groza Award winner Zane Gonzalez connected on a career-long 56-yard field goal in the team’s 24-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday afternoon, while hitting all three of his extra point attempts.

D.J. Foster

Running back D.J. Foster was promoted to the Cardinals’ active roster, filling in on the squad’s special teams unit on Sunday.

Brandon Aiyuk

Receiver Aiyuk missed the 49ers’ opening week tilt because of a hamstring injury.

Aiyuk was a full participant in San Francisco’s practice on Wednesday and is scheduled to make his debut this Sunday, against the New York Jets.

Eno Benjamin

First-year running back Eno Benjamin was inactive for the Cardinals in their opening week victory over San Francisco.

Jamil Douglas

Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Jamil Douglas was also unable to play in the team’s Monday night opener against Denver after suffering a hand injury during preseason practice.

The Titans were able to leave Denver with a hard-earned, 16-14 victory over the Broncos.

The former All-Pac-12 selection is on schedule to make his season debut for the Titans against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Renell Wren

The final active roster Sun Devil alum is second-year defensive tackle Renell Wren, who is on the injured reserve list for the Cincinnati Bengals after suffering a quadriceps injury during the offseason.
