The first week of the 2012 NFL preseason begins Thursday. As of Wednesday, there are currently 41 former Iowa football players listed on NFL rosters, with three of those 41 players listed on injured reserve. Those three players are former tight end Brad Herman (Patriots), former linebacker A.J. Edds (Colts) and former defensive back Shaun Prater, who was a fifth-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals last April.

Below is a list of this week’s preseason games in the NFL, including which former Iowa players are with which teams. For those in Eastern Iowa, two NFL preseason games will be shown Thursday and Friday nights respectively. KFXA-TV (FOX affilate) will carry the Chicago Bears’ preseason game against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, while KGAN-TV (CBS affiliate) will have the Minnesota Vikings’ preseason game on Friday against the San Francisco 49ers.

There are also six nationally televised preseason games this week including Sunday’s contest on NFL Network between the St. Louis Rams and Indianapolis Colts, which features four former Hawkeye players who are currently active.
