Former UConn DL makes pro debut

Former UConn defensive end Teddy Jennings became the eighth senior from UConn's 2012 team to play professionally.

Jennings made his debut with the Arena Football League's Philadelphia Soul in a 62-55 overtime loss to Arizona on Saturday night.

Jennings had three tackles and the game's only sack.

San Jose opens the season on Monday with a 10 p.m. game at Portland.
