Jets Run Sack Leaders at the Bye

If you tackle the quarterback for no gain or a loss on a passing play, you are credited with a sack. Players who produce a lot of sacks are highly celebrated.

Getting a tackle on a run play for no gain or a loss also helps the defense tremendously, but you seldom hear about the players who do this on a regular basis.

I wanted to do something about this so a few years back I created a stat called the run sack. These are the aforementioned tackles for no gain or a loss on rushing attempts.

Periodically I like to check in to see the run sack leaders on the Jets. The bye week seems like as good of a time as any for this.

Here are the Jets run sack leaders through the first five weeks:

John Franklin-Myers 5

Shaq Lawson 5

Quincy Williams 4

Quinnen Williams 4

Foley Fatukasi 4

Adrian Colbert 2

CJ Mosley 2

Tim Ward 1

Jarrod Wilson 1

Bryce Hall 1

Javelin Guidry 1

Michael Carter II 1

Marcus Maye 1

Bryce Huff 1
