Every Wednesday during the season, we'll lead off the day with a quick recap of former New England Patriots players and their standing with new teams.
Patrick Chung (Eagles) Starts at free safety and finishes with seven tackles in home loss to Chargers.

Brandon Deaderick (Jaguars) A reserve defensive tackle, he plays 18 snaps and has one tackle, one sack and one forced fumble in loss to Raiders.
Season snapshot: Has played 36 total snaps; 2 tackles, 1 sack.
Zoltan Mesko (Steelers) Seven punts for a 46.6-yard average and 42.7 net in a loss to the Bengals.
Season snapshot: Has punted 14 times.
Trevor Scott (Buccaneers) Plays 16 snaps as a reserve defensive end in loss to Saints and is credited with two tackles.
Season snapshot: 31 total snaps.
Donald Thomas (Colts) Lands on season-ending injured reserve after injuring his quadriceps in home loss to Dolphins.

Wes Welker (Broncos) Totals three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown in road victory over the Giants, playing 48 of 72 offensive snaps.
Season snapshot: Has played 104 of 145 offensive snaps, and has 12 catches (three for touchdowns).
Danny Woodhead (Chargers)
Much more involved in the offense, he plays 41 of 83 offensive snaps in road win over Eagles after being on the field for just nine snaps in the season opener. Finishes with nine carries for 27 yards and eight catches for 37 yards.
