UConn in NFL: Week 3

Former UConn star Jordan Todman scored his first career NFL
touchdown in Jacksonville's loss to Seattle on Sunday.
The biggest news surrounding the UConn products in the NFL other than the buzz being created by Jordan Todman's ill-advised touchdown celebration while Jacksonville Jaguars were being blown out is the number of former Huskies unable to suit up.

Donald Thomas, an offensive lineman for the Colts, went on injured reserve and four former Huskies were inactive due to injuries. The good news is that there are reports that one of those injured players, Jacksonville CB Dwayne Gratz, was seen today moving around without the aid of  a walking boot.

Here's a look at how the UConn profucts did during week 3.

Will Beatty, OT New York Giants: Started in 38-0 loss to Carolina
Tyvon Branch, S Oakland: Was inactive (leg)
