Jonathan Greenard

It seems that only Texans fans know of Jonathan Greenard, but that may change this season. Greenard had eight sacks last season and still missed games, and as one of the leaders of the defense, Greenard will have to play a huge role this Sunday against the Colts.

The Colts have a great offensive line, one of the best in the league. If Greenard can make a mark and get a sack in the 2022 season opener, people may open their eyes to how good he can be.

This Sunday the defense needs to be alert, and Greenard has to get the defense ready to roll. Stopping the run is the main priority when playing the Colts, and if Greenard can slow down Jonathan Taylor, the rest of the team will feed off that energy and do the same.

Week 1 at NRG Stadium is a massive challenge for Greenard and the new-look defense, but if they can do damage against the Colts’ offense, Greeenard could establish himself as a name to watch in the league.
