The only Husker selected in the 2018 NFL draft will not be on the opening-day roster of the team that selected him.
Tanner Lee, a sixth-round pick, was among the players cut Saturday by the Jacksonville Jaguars as teams finalized their 53-man rosters for Week 1. Lee was one of at least eight former Huskers released this weekend. At least three others were placed on injured reserve.
Vincent Valentine, a member of NU’s 2016 draft class, was let go by New England. Valentine was a member of the Patriots’ Super Bowl team in 2016 but missed all of last season due to injury.
Brandon Reilly was a roster casualty of the Bills. Reilly bounced between Buffalo’s practice squad and active roster in the last year.
NFL teams will begin forming their practice squads Sunday.
The former Huskers cut or placed on injured reserve:
» Linebacker Zaire Anderson, Denver Broncos
» Offensive lineman Nick Gates, New York Giants (injured reserve)
» Tight end Tyler Hoppes, Minnesota Vikings
» Defensive back Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Baltimore Ravens (injured reserve)
» Defensive back Joshua Kalu, Tennessee Titans
» Fullback Luke McNitt, Minnesota Vikings
» Offensive lineman Givens Price, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
