Pro Highlights

  • In 2013, entered the season as a starter for the first time since 2010 and opened a career-high 12 games at ILB in the middle of the Green Bay defense.
  • Finished the season third on the team with 98 tackles (73 solo), three sacks, two passes defensed, a forced fumble and the first fumble recovery of his career.
  • Made the offseason transition from outside to inside LB in 2012, and ultimately assumed starting duties at the “Mack’”LB position following season-ending injuries to both Desmond Bishop (hamstring) and D.J. Smith (knee).
  • Took over as the starter in Week 7 following the injury to Smith and went on to open the final 10 games, posting career highs in tackles (102), solo tackles (75), passes defensed (six) and forced fumbles (one). His tackle total ranked No. 3 on the team, and he also added two sacks.
  • Also started both playoff games and tied for the team lead with 16 tackles (13 solo) in the postseason.  
  • Reached unrestricted free agency in the spring of 2013, but was quickly re-signed to a new contract by the Packers, March 21.
  • Over his five seasons, has played in 63 games with 35 starts and posted 280 tackles (197 solo) with 10 sacks, eight passes defensed, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
  • Returned to full health from a season-ending shoulder injury that forced him to miss the second half of 2010 and appeared in a career-high 15 games in 2011. Played extensively as one of the club’s top contributors on special teams, and tied for third on the team with a career-high 11 coverage tackles on the season.
  • Worked his way back into the rotation on defense and eventually started the regular-season finale and playoff game at OLB. Defensively, finished with 12 tackles (six solo) and a sack in the regular season.
  • Posted the team’s lone sack in the NFC Divisional playoff contest vs. the N.Y. Giants, and also became the first Packer since Cletidus Hunt in 2002 to block a FG attempt in a postseason game.
  • Started five of the first six games in 2010, and posted 37 tackles (20 solo), before aggravating a shoulder injury in Week 7 that had first bothered him in training camp. Was placed on injured reserve, Oct. 27.
  • Took over the starting job in 2009 during Week 12 of his rookie season after veteran Aaron Kampman sustained a season-ending knee injury the previous game.
  • Started seven games and became only the fifth Packer (since 1982) to record four sacks as a rookie, with all of them coming in the final five games. Was one of only six NFL rookies in 2009 to post four or more sacks, and was joined in that group by teammate Clay Matthews.
  • With his seven starts in ’09, tied Patriots WR Julian Edelman for the most games started by a 2009 seventh-round draft choice.
