Swearinger recorded three tackles (all solo), including a sack, and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Swearinger hasn't recorded many tackles this year, but he's been a quality player for the Redskins. His performance Sunday gives him 37 tackles, including two sacks, nine passes defensed, four interceptions and three forced fumbles on the season. Looking ahead, Swearinger and the Redskins will take on the Cowboys in Week 12.
Swearinger recorded just one tackle on the night, but it's at least a good sign that his hamstring issue appears to be behind him. The seventh-year safety is slated to start at safety for the Redskins again in 2018 after posting career-high marks in defensive snaps (1,095), tackles (61) and interceptions (four) in 2017.
Swearinger is apparently nursing a minor hamstring injury that doesn't look to be too serious. The Redskins appear to be taking the cautious route with their starting safety in hopes of ensuring that he'll be playing in the games that actually count. Either way, we should have a clearer indication of Swearinger's status in the coming days.
Swearinger recorded 79 tackles (61 solo), 10 passes defensed, four interceptions, one forced fumble and 0.5 sacks across 16 contests this season.
Swearinger's first season in the nation's capital was one for the books, as the safety notched career-highs in almost every statistical category. He was second on the team in tackles and provided a consistent presence in Washington's secondary, as his 1,095 defensive reps were the most on the defensive unit.
