Cyclones in the NFL

Many former Cyclones took to the field this weekend in the first full week of NFL preseason action.

Sage Rosenfels didn't get the start for Washington as he did in the Redskins' preseason opener. Yet the quarterback still fared quite well in the action he did get on Saturday night against Carolina. Rosenfels completed 5-of-9 passes for 60 yards in a 37-30 victory over the Panthers. Rosenfels keyed one scoring drive that ended in a 45-yard field goal by Brett Conway. The Maquoketa native is in a three-way battle with ex-Florida standouts Shane Matthews and Danny Wuerffel for the starting job. Washington also drafted a quarterback in the first round of April's draft, Patrick Ramsey of Tulane.

 Former Iowa State return man and wide receiver J.J. Moses helped Kansas City to a 17-14 overtime triumph over San Francisco. Moses was back for a number of punt return opportunities, but managed to return only one of them for nine yards. As a receiver, Moses caught one pass for three yards.

 Reserve nose tackle James Reed of the New York Jets compiled two total tackles in his team's 16-6 victory over Pittsburgh.

 Offensive lineman Oliver Ross, in a training camp battle for a starting job, got to start for the Steelers.

 Two-time All-Big 12 running back Ennis Haywood saw brief action for Dallas, rushing once for two yards in a 20-6 Cowboy victory over Oakland.

 Playing in Seattle's 28-10 loss to Indianapolis, Marcus Robertson made one tackle. Robertson, entering his 13th season in the NFL, is a starting free safety for the Seahawks.
