2012 FIU in the 2013 NFL preseason

Quickie updates on a couple of last year's seniors trying to make NFL rosters:

Former FIU cornerback Junior Mertile got into Saturday night's Giants preseason game against Pittsburgh in the fourth quarter. He had two tackles and a tackle assist. Steelers wide receiver Derek Moye caught two passes in front of Mertile, one to convert a third down.

Friday night, San Diego sixth round pick Tourek Williams, converting to outside linebacker from defensive end, made a tackle for no gain and helped on a tackle for a 2-yard loss in the third quarter. He also had an offside penalty on third and 1.

Jacksonville held Johnathan Cyprien out against the Dolphins Friday night with his hamstring injury.
