SALT LAKE CITY — Four former Utes have been elevated to the active roster ahead of Week 4 in the NFL.
Francis Bernard, Nate Orchard, Jared Norris and Javelin Guidry all made the 53-man roster for their respective teams this week.
Former Utah Utes and BYU Cougars linebacker Francis Bernard will likely be making his NFL debut on Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys face off against the Cleveland Browns at 11 a.m. MDT.
Bernard, who has been on the Cowboys’ practice squad this season and was signed as an undrafted free agent in April, will be seeing his first action at AT&T Stadium. Bernard is expected to play his snaps on special teams.
Cowboys have elevated LB Francis Bernard from the practice squad, they announced. Undrafted rookie from Utah had some bright moments during camp. Debut comes Sunday vs. Browns. Most, if not all, action to come on special teams.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) October 3, 2020
