Jonathan Greenard continues to get sacks.
The second-year defensive lineman rang up two more in Sunday's loss at Arizona. His play was one of the few bright spots in the 31-5 loss. He also broke up a pass and was in on two more tackles. Greenard leads the club with six sacks in 2021, and as of Sunday evening, was tied for seventh in the NFL in that statistic.
"Just playing relentless, just handling my job, reading my keys, beating my guy, just trying to make a play," Greenard said. "I mean overall, the defense, we're all trying to make a play. I was just at the right place right time, I think."
Head Coach David Culley was impressed by what he saw from the young pass rusher and thinks he's only scratching the surface of his potential.
"He's playing well right now," Culley said. "He continues to play well. He's going to keep getting better, and better, and better. That group is going to end up coming with him as we go along."
DL Jacob Martin also logged a sack on Sunday, and his resulted in a first-quarter safety that gave Houston an early 2-0 advantage. He, too, thinks Greenard is a big plus on the defensive side of the ball.
"He's rushing his butt off," Martin said. "And I'm happy to see it. It's exciting. It's awesome to see him ball out, for sure."
