Cowboys in the NFL: Week 4
LARAMIE – Currently, nine former Wyoming Cowboys are on active NFL rosters.
Each week, we’ll look at how these former Pokes are producing in the pros.
ANDREW WINGARD – Jacksonville Jaguars
It was a happy homecoming for Denver native and former Wyoming safety, Andrew Wingard, Sunday as his Jaguars knocked off the Broncos, 26-24. He finished with one tackle in the win and now has three on the season, including a forced fumble. Dozens of supporters made the trip over to Mile High to support Jacksonville's No. 42.

Allen was forced out of the game in the third quarter after taking a blow to the head.
