Three members of the 2009 Bruin football team have made NFL Opening Weekend rosters and two more will spend the season on injured reserve.

Wide receiver/kick returner Terrence Austin (Washington Redskins) is on the practice squad and linebacker Kyle Bosworth (Jacksonville Jaguars) will spend the season on injured reserve.
