Butler Named Defensive Player-of-the-Week

INDIANAPOLIS --The NFL today announced that Indianapolis Colts cornerback Darius Butler has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 10. This marks the first time Butler has earned the award in his career.

 

In Butler’s first start of the season, he contributed with two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, and one fumble recovery in a 27-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Butler became the first Colt to record three-or-more takeaways in a game since Mike Prior in 1992. Since moving to Indianapolis in 1984, the Colts have had only two other players record three-or-more takeaways in a single game.

 

The interceptions for Butler were the fourth and fifth of his career and first since 2009. He now holds career totals of 98 tackles (87 solo), 26 passes defensed and five interceptions in 46 games played (15 starts).
