ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - As players and coaches prepare for week four in the National Football League, 12 former Knights hold spots on NFL rosters, including Brandon Marshall, who shined in this past weekend's Sunday Night Football spotlight.

Marshall can take part in some good-natured trash talk this week with his Bears starting wide receiver counterpart, Alshon Jeffery. On Saturday, Marshall's Knights are set to host Jeffery's Gamecocks in a nationally-televised contest on ABC at noon.

Jah Reid (Baltimore) saw his first action of the season for the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens. Baltimore earned a 30-9 victory over Houston to move into a tie for first place in the AFC North. 

Matt Prater (Denver) Prater went 3-for-3 on field goal attempts and 4-for-4 on extra points during Monday's 37-21 win over the Raiders. Prater leads the NFL with 31 points scored.

Josh Robinson (Minnesota) got his third-consecutive start at cornerback and was part of a Vikings pass defense that intercepted three passes in a loss to Cleveland.

North of the border, a trio of UCF players are continuing their CFL careers as Joe Burnett is suiting up with Edmonton, Mike Sims-Walker joined Winnipeg and Keith Shologan is with Saskatchewan. Burnett and Shologan have each seen action in 10 contests, while Sims-Walker has yet to debut after signing his contract on Aug. 27.
