Twenty five former Gators were active week three of the NFL season. Of those 25, 17 started for their respective teams including Carlos Dunlap, who made his first career NFL start. Washington Redskins’ QB Rex Grossman was the only former Gator to score a touchdown during week four, but that certainly doesn’t mean the remaining 23 Orange and Blue NFL’ers didn’t perform well.

Buffalo Bills’ Andra Davis started at MLB and got three tackles. On the offensive side of the ball for the Bills, WR David Nelson caught 2 passes for 18 yds.

Andre Caldwell caught 2 passes for 17 yards for the Bengals while Carlos Dunlap recorded his first career start on the defensive side of the ball for Cincinnati. Dunlap registered two tackles, one QB hurry, and had one pass defended while his team mate Reggie Nelson started at FS and had seven total tackles.
