Hawkeyes in the NFL: 2013 Preseason Week Four

Posted on 28. Aug, 2013 by in Iowa Football

The final day of the 2013 NFL preseason is Thursday. After teams had to trim rosters down to 75 players by Aug. 27, there currently remain 33 former Iowa football players listed on NFL rosters. Two of those 33 players — Patriots offensive tackle Markus Zusevics and Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga — have been officially placed on injured reserve (IR) for the remainder of the 2013 season. Two former quarterbacks were cut following last weekend’s games, as Ricky Stanzi was let go by the Chiefs and James Vandenberg was cut by the Vikings. Stanzi has since been claimed off waivers by the Jaguars.

Below is a list of Thursday’s preseason games in the NFL, including which former Iowa players are with which teams. Included is a list of television stations in Iowa carrying preseason games of four Midwest teams — the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings. With the Packers and Chiefs playing each other, there will be two stations in Des Moines carrying the game with KDSM-TV being the Chiefs’ affiliate and KCWI-TV the Packers’ affiliate.

In addition, there is a nationally televised preseason contest on NFL Network Thursday evening between the Giants and Patriots, a game featuring a trio of former Hawkeyes. Former tight end Brandon Myers and safety Tyler Sash will suit up for the Giants, while former linebacker Jeff Tarpinian will be among those suiting up for the Patriots.
