Here is your weekly report on how the former Louisville Cardinals did in the NFL over the weekend. The Cards currently have 11 former players on active NFL rosters, and yes, I am counting Jonathan Greenard in this. We are one week closer to Teddy vs Lamar in week four. Just throwing that out there.
