Hawkeyes in the NFL: 2012 Preseason Week Three

Posted on 22. Aug, 2012 by in Iowa Football

By Brendan Stiles

The third week of the 2012 NFL preseason, also known as the “dress rehearsal” week since starters play the majority of the games, begins Thursday. As of Wednesday morning, there currently remain 41 former Iowa football players listed on NFL rosters, with three listed on injured reserve.

*UPDATE: Former Iowa offensive lineman Eric Steinbach announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday. Steinbach was listed on the Miami Dolphins’ roster. His retirement means there are now 40 former Hawkeyes currently playing in the NFL.*

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, KGAN-TV (CBS affiliate) will carry the Minnesota Vikings’ preseason game on Friday against the San Diego Chargers via tape delay following the national CBS’ coverage of the Chicago Bears against the New York Giants.

In addition, there are six nationally televised preseason games this week including Sunday’s contest on NBC between Charles Godfrey and the Carolina Panthers against Shonn Greene, Matt Kroul and the New York Jets.
