Three former Cougars have reportedly been cut from their NFL teams.

Former WSU quarterback Luke Falk, wide receiver River Cracraft and linebacker Frankie Luvu were all a part of cuts today by NFL teams who have to trim their rosters down to 53 s from 90.

Falk, a sixth-round pick for the Tennessee Titans in the 2018 NFL Draft, was competing with seven-year veteran and former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert for the backup quarterback job in Tennessee. Jim Wyatt of Titans Online first reported the news of Falk’s cut.

Cracraft spent time on Denver’s practice squad in 2017 and has been stunted by injuries since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2017. Nicki Hjabvala of the Athletic was the first to report Cracraft’s cut.

Luvu signed with the Jets this offseason as an undrafted free agent and was thought to have a good chance of making the Jets 53-man roster. Darryl Slater of NJ advanced media first reported Luvu’s cut.

All three of the former Cougars are practice squad eligible if another NFL team does not pick them up. Teams are required to have their practice squad announced by this Sunday.
