Butler tallied 69 tackles (60 solo, including a sack) and 12 passes defensed -- including three interceptions -- while playing in all 16 games for the Titans in 2018. Butler had a career high in tackles in his first year with Tennessee, despite the lowest snap total he's seen in some time. After averaging over a thousand defensive snaps per season the last three years, he only played 836 for the Titans, though he managed to hover around his career averages in most measures. He'll figure to come back as a starting corner once again in 2019 and look to maintain his quality play.
Butler recorded five tackles with a pass defensed and interception in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington. Butler delivered a highlight on the final play of the game, intercepting a deep pass attempt by Josh Johnson and returning it for a touchdown. After a relatively slow start to the season, Butler has improved his play over the past several weeks, breaking up five passes and picking off two pass attempts in his past six games.
Butler recorded four tackles and two passes defensed in Thursday's 30-9 win over the Jaguars. Butler was battling a quadriceps injury in the short week leading up to Thursday's game, though he did ultimately enter the contest without an injury designation. Coming off a performance against the Jets in which he tallied a victory-clinching interception, Butler recorded two passes defensed as an encore. He now has four pass breakups in his past four games, and nine for the season.
Butler (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and is ready to play Sunday against the Jets, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports. Butler logged a limited practice Wednesday, and after practicing fully Thursday, it seemed all he needed was the final go-ahead to clear the league's concussion protocol. The 28-year-old has yet to miss a full game and has logged 46 tackles (42 solo) and one interception across 11 contests.
Butler recorded 10 tackles, a sack and a tackle for loss Week 4 against the Eagles. Butler sacked Carson Wentz in the first quarter, blitzing off the edge untouched to record his first sack as a Titan. However, he was beaten by Jordan Matthews for a 56-yard touchdown late in the second quarter, overshadowing his earlier production. Butler has had a rocky start to his tenure with the Titans, with Matthews' touchdown being the second long score he has allowed in four weeks.
