Brian Orakpo recorded his seventh sack of the season to go along with three tackles (two solo) and a pass defended Thursday in Jacksonville.
Orakpo's performance in recent weeks has validated Tennessee's offseason investment in him. The former Redskin now has five sacks in his last four contests to lead an underrated Tennessee Titans defensive unit.
Brian Orakpo recorded six tackles (five solo, one for loss), and his sixth sack of the season Sunday against the Panthers.
Orakpo played 64 of 68 possible defensive snaps, and the 29-year-old linebacker is really heating up after getting off to a slow start. He now has four sacks in the last three contests after registering just two in the season's first six games.
Brian Orakpo recorded two sacks Sunday in New Orleans, bringing his season total to five.
The talented outside linebacker has been reasonably quiet in his first season with the Tennessee Titans , but this performance was a reminder that he's still a highly adept pass-rusher.
Orakpo wreaked havoc in the Colts backfield on two occasions, but he was very quiet outside of those plays. He's off to an underwhelming start, but hopefully he will bring more of a spark following the team's Week 4 bye.
"I'll be ready to rock and roll as soon as we open camp," he told ESPN. "Body-wise, I feel 100 percent. The pec and everything else feels real good. We kind of played it safe in OTAs and minicamp for precaution, but now we can kind of unleash everything."
Orakpo signed with Tennessee as a free agent after six seasons with Washington.
