UConn in NFL update; SNY broadcast plans

It was a relatively busy day for UConn grads as receiver Kashif Moore was signed by the Indianapolis Colts and lineman Zach Hurd was waived by the Oakland Raiders. By my count there are 15 former UConn players on active rosters with another (linebacker Scott Lutrus on injured reserve) as teams got down to 75 players. NFL squads still need to get down to the maximum 53-man rosters by Friday so there will be some anxious moments for some former Huskies.

Here's a look at the UConn products on rosters .

Arizona: FB Anthony Sherman
Atlanta: DB Robert McClain
Buffalo: WR Marcus Easley
Carolina: DB Darius Butler
Indianapolis: RB Donald Brown, LB Greg Lloyd, WR Kashif Moore (LB Scott Lutrus on IR)
Minnesota: RB Jordan Todman
New England: OL Donald Thomas
New Orleans: LB Lawrence Wilson
New York Giants: OL Will Beatty
Oakland: S Tyvon Branch
San Diego: DL Kendall Reyes
Tampa Bay: QB Dan Orlovsky, OL Moe Petrus

UConn will be featured prominently on SNY in the upcoming season including Thursday when it will air a season preview at 7 p.m. followed by live coverage of the season opener against UMass and live coverage of four of the Huskies' first five games.

Here are some of the plans for the upcoming season
