With the seemingly imminent return of DE Greg Romeus and with Jabaal Sheard playing so well (as expected), where does that leave Brandon Lindsey?
Lindsey leads the team in sacks with eight, good for seventh in the nation. Some of that can be attributed to double and even triple-teaming of Sheard, which Dave Wannstedt alluded to yesterday after the game:
"They were literally triple teaming Jabaal Sheard, so Brandon Lindsey stepped up and had three sacks. We were playing in coverage today and we were generating pressure out of our defensive front. I thought that made a huge difference today."
Lindsey's been a beast, but I fully expect him to moving back to a reserve spot at end once Romeus returns. I just hope they get him in on more plays because he's clearly earned that.
