The 2015 NFL season has finally reached the start of its all-important 17-week, 16-game stretch. Rosters were cut down to 53 players this weekend. Who made their team's cuts and who is on the way elsewhere? Here's where all current ASU alumni are placed with the new season set to get underway.

Arizona Cardinals: RB Marion Grice — Grice has been waived/injured by the Arizona Cardinals.

Note: The Cardinals signed former Sun Devil defensive back Robert Nelson to their practice squad.

Atlanta Falcons: none

Baltimore Ravens: DE Lawrence Guy, OLB Terrell Suggs — Guy and Suggs each safely made the Ravens' 53-man roster. Guy begins the season as the team's second-string defensive end, while Suggs once again starts at outside linebacker for one of the better defenses in the league.

Chicago Bears: DT Will Sutton — Sutton performed well during the preseason. He enters the regular season as a candidate to see the field more often along the defensive line as the season progresses in Chicago.

Cincinatti Bengals: DT Marcus Hardison, OLB Vontaze Burfict — Hardison made the cut in what is a deep group, outlasting counterpart Devon Still. Meanwhile, Burfict was placed on the reserve/PUP list to start the year, and will miss the first six weeks of the season.

Cleveland Browns: DB Robert Nelson (cut) — Nelson was cut by the Cleveland Browns. He was signed by the Arizona Cardinals to their practice squad.

Dallas Cowboys: DT Davon Coleman — After standing out throughout the offseason and preseason, Coleman made the Cowboys roster. He will serve as a backup defensive tackle.

Denver Broncos: QB Brock Osweiler, SS Omar Bolden, WR Kyle Williams — Osweiler and Bolden safely made the Broncos final cut. Williams torn his achilles in training camp and was lost for the season.

Detroit Lions: none

Green Bay Packers: CB Damarious Randall (safe), OLB Carl Bradford (cut), C Garth Gerhart (cut) — Randall opens the year listed as a backup at cornerback, but figures to see plenty of the field. The two Norco (Ca.) products—Bradford and Gerhart—were cut loose on Saturday.

Houston Texans: WR Jaelen Strong — Strong survived a sluggish start to the preseason, making the final team. He'll battle for playing time at receiver behind multiple veterans.

Indianapolis Colts: CB Deveron Carr (cut) — Carr was waived/injured by the Colts on August 31 in order to reach the 75-man roster limit following their third preseason game.

Jacksonville Jaguars: none

Kansas City Chiefs: OG Paul Fanaika — Fanaika made the final cut and will open the season with a chance to see the field during the 2015 season.

Miami Dolphins: OG Jamil Douglas — Douglas was able to win the starting right guard job during the preseason.

Minnesota Vikings: none

New England Patriots: none

New Orleans Saints: LB Chris Young (cut) — The Saints waived Young in order to reach the 75-man roster limit following the team's third preseason game.

New York Giants: none

New York Jets: none

Oakland Raiders: none

Philadelphia Eagles: none

Pittsburgh Steelers: DB Alden Darby (cut) — Darby was released during the team's final wave of roster cuts on Saturday.

San Diego Chargers: none

San Francisco 49ers: none

Seattle Seahawks: DB Keelan Johnson (cut) — Johnson was a part of the August 31 cuts when teams trimmed their rosters to 75 men.

St. Louis Rams: none

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: none

Tennessee Titans: none

Washington: WR Rashad Ross, OG Shawn Lauvao — Ross' impressive preseason resulted in him making Washington's final roster. Lauvao is expected to start at left guard for the team.
