Another week, another roundup.

Here's a quick look at how the cast of former Pitt standouts in the NFL performed in Week 5 of the league's 2016 season.

WR Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals: Six catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-21 victory at the 49ers last Thursday. Ageless. Wonder.

RB LeSean McCoy, Bills: 18 carries for 150 yards, and two catches for eight yards in a 30-19 win at the Rams.

DT Chas Alecxih, Panthers: On injured reserve with a knee injury.

P Andy Lee, Panthers: Four punts averaging 44.3 yards in a 17-14 loss Monday night to the Bucs.

WR Tyler Boyd, Bengals: Three catches for 33 yards in a 28-14 loss at the Cowboys.

QB Tom Savage, Texans: Did not play in a 31-13 loss at the Vikings. As bad as Brock Osweiler has been thus far for Houston, he’s also spectacularly overpaid, so I wouldn’t expect a change in Savage’s backup status.

DT Aaron Donald, Rams: Two tackles, one of them solo, 0.5 sacks and 1.5 tackles for loss in a loss against the Bills.

OL T.J. Clemmings, Vikings: Started at right tackle in a victory against the Texans.

RB Dion Lewis, Patriots: Did not play; recovering from a knee surgery that will keep him out until late October, at the earliest.

DL Jabaal Sheard, Patriots: Three tackles, two of them solo, one pass defended and one quarterback hit in a 33-13 win at the Browns.

CB Darrelle Revis, Jets: Was inactive for a loss at the Steelers with a mild strain in his left hamstring.
