Another NFL regular season is here, and IU football is well represented once again.
In total, seven former Indiana University football players have registered at least one snap thus far during the 2019 NFL season and three more have been on 53-man rosters at some point this year.
Below is a summary of the performance of each player through the first four weeks of the season.
TEVIN COLEMAN, RB, SAN FRANCISCO 49ers
Att – 6
Yards – 23
YPC – 3.8
TD – 0
Rec – 2
Rec Yards – 33
TD – 0
Notes: Coleman has missed the last three weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain in week one. The former All-American is expected to return soon to a crowded backfield situation in San Francisco.
DAN FEENEY, G, LOS ANGELES CHARGERS
Games/Started – 4/4
Notes: Feeney has started every game for the Chargers, and has played on more than 90% of their offensive snaps. He has also been a part of 20 snaps on special teams.
JORDAN HOWARD, RB, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Att – 40
Yards – 186
Avg – 4.7
TD – 3
Rec – 6
Rec Yards – 47
Rec TD – 1
Notes: Howard had a breakout week four with his new team, gaining 115 yards from scrimmage and scoring three touchdowns. The former Hoosier back is stuck in a running back committee situation in Philadelphia but may be emerging as the lead horse.

CODY LATIMER, WR, NEW YORK GIANTS
Games/Started – 3/3
Rec – 6
Yards – 104
Notes: With the Giants dealing with injuries, the 27 year old Latimer has started all three games that he has been available. Latimer has been on the field for 74% of snaps in his three games. The Giants are expecting the return of Golden Tate this week which may complicate his role going forward.
WES MARTIN, WASHINGTON REDSKINS
Martin played in his first career NFL game in week four, making his first start for the Redskins.
RODGER SAFFOLD, OT, TENNESSEE TITANS
Games/Started – 4/4
Notes: Saffold signed with the Titans during the offseason, his third NFL contract. He has played in 100 percent of the Titans’ offensive snaps thus far and 14 percent of special teams.
NATE SUDFELD, QB, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Notes: Sudfeld broke his wrist during the preseason and has returned to the Eagles’ roster. He is expected to resume his projected role as Carson Wentz’ backup in the coming weeks.
IAN THOMAS, TE, CAROLINA PANTHERS
Games/Started – 4/0
Notes: Thomas has had a surprisingly limited role thus far as part of a struggling Panthers’ offense. Although he has appeared in all four games, Thomas has been targeted just once and has no receptions on the season. Thomas has played in just 4 percent of offensive snaps and 3 percent snaps of special teams snaps.
Also on a Roster/No Apperances:
- Brandon Knight made the Cowboys opening day 53-man roster but has yet to appear in a game this year.
- Jason Spriggs is on the Packers’ injured reserve.
Practice Squad Players:
- Chris Covington (Dallas) — Covington was briefly on the Cowboys 53-man roster but did not appear in a game.
