SALT LAKE CITY – Heading into the fifth week of action, Utah will have 15 former Utes suit up for their respective teams, with 24 former players on rosters in the league. Former Utes will kick off the action on Thursday night when Indianapolis travels to Denver, and Julian Blackmon will meet up with Garett Bolles.

Devin Lloyd continued to shine as a rookie in the NFL in week four. After being named September Defensive Rookie of the Month, Lloyd was second on the team in tackles with 14 in week four. The 14 tackles are a single-game career-high.

Leading into the games last week, the Philadelphia Eagles made a roster move and signed Britain Covey to the active roster. He had three kickoff returns and one punt return against Jacksonville.
