ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - As players and coaches prepare for week seven in the National Football League, 13 former Knights hold spots on NFL rosters. Linebacker Troy Davis was recently signed by the New York Jets to their active roster after spending the first five weeks of the season on the team's practice squad. Wide receiver Jamar Newsome is also back in the NFL after signing to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad in September.

Brandon Marshall (Chicago) racked up nine catches for 87 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Bears snapped a two-game losing streak to remain in first place in the NFC North. 

Matt Prater (Denver) Prater went 5-for-5 on extra point attempts as the Broncos improved to 6-0. Prater leads the NFL in total points (61), extra points (34) and touchbacks (35).

Josh Sitton (Green Bay) started at LG and helped allow Eddy Lacy to run for a career-high 120 yards in the Packers 19-17 victory over Baltimore. Green Bay ranks 2nd in the NFL with 5.2 team YPC.

North of the border, a quartet of UCF players are continuing their CFL careers as Joe Burnett is suiting up with Edmonton, Mike Sims-Walker joined Winnipeg. Keith Shologan is with Saskatchewan and Ray Shipman signed with Hamilton in October. Burnett has seen action in 13 contests while Shologan has played in 12 games. Sims-Walker and Shipman have yet to debut.
