Malik Jackson recorded five tackles, one tackle for a loss, one quarterback hit, a fumble recovery and a touchdown in Denver's Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.
Jackson pounced on Von Miller's first strip sack of Cam Newton, giving Denver a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. The team never looked back. Jackson didn't record a sack in the playoffs, and managed a modest five during the season, but established himself as a disruptive interior force. The Denver Broncos locked up Jackson's other half, Derek Wolfe, and have Von Miller's contract to worry about, likely making Jackson one of the better free agent defensive linemen.
Malik Jackson had five tackles, including two sacks during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.
Jackson started off the season very well, picking up 3.5 sacks in the first five games, but he hadn't gotten to the quarterback since Week 6 before Sunday's two-sack effort.
Malik Jackson had three tackles, including a sack, Sunday against the Browns.
Jackson has now picked up at least a half-sack in four of six games this season, recording 3.5 so far, putting him well on pace to best his career-high of six. That being said, he's a marginal fantasy IDP option given his low tackle totals (career-high of 42).
The injury forced Jackson to miss most of Friday's practice and there is no word on if the injury will keep Jackson sidelined.
