Reader had three tackles, two sacks and three quarterback hits in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.
A nose tackle by trade, Reader made both of his sacks after bouncing outside to end when Christian Covington left the game with a thigh injury. He equaled the number of sacks posted over his first two years in the league.

Reader seems to be fully past the sprained knee that prevented him from playing in the final two games of last season. Entering his third year in the league, Reader is locked into the starting nose tackle role and poised to improve upon the impressive start to his career in 2018. In 30 games over the past two seasons, the Clemson product has started 21 games and racked up 69 tackles and two sacks.
