Mercilus finished up the season in style with 6.5 sacks in Week 17 and the wild card round of the playoffs. The
Mercilus plays the same position as Jadeveon Clowney (foot) and is not a full-timer on defense, but he posted a career-high 12.0 sacks in 2015. He's had 30 sacks in his first four seasons in the league.
Whitney Mercilus filled in for the injured Jadeveon Clowney (back) and had 3.5 sacks, four quarterback hits and four tackles for loss in Sunday's win over the Titans.
Mercilus has seen his snap count reduced since Clowney has been available, but he's not around, Mercilus has been productive with 5.5 sacks this season.
Whitney Mercilus filled in at weak outside linebacker for the injured Jadeveon Clowney (ankle) and had two sacks in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
The sacks were his first two of the season and Mercilus will continue to fill in on the weak side until Clowney returns. John Simon, who had a sack Sunday, stepped into the starting lineup at strong side linebacker after Mercilus shifted to replace Clowney.
