DURHAM, N.C. – The first full week of NFL preseason games is upon us, kicking off Thursday with 12 contests. Duke will be represented in the preseason by 14 alums, including two rookies who wrapped up their time as Blue Devils with the 2017 Quick Lane Bowl victory against Northern Illinois.

The longest tenured NFL Blue Devil is Vincent Rey, who is entering his ninth season with the Cincinnati Bengals. Of the 14 in the league, all played for head coach David Cutcliffe at some point of their Duke careers.

The Carolina Panthers' Ross Cockrell suffered a season-ending leg injury during the opening week and is now on the reserve/injured roster. The rest of the 13 Blue Devils could see action this week.

One of Thursday's games is a Duke versus Duke matchup as Mike Ramsay of the Tennessee Titans travels to Lucas Patrick and Austin Davis of the Green Bay Packers.
