Washington Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland is among five players up for Week 7 Rookie of the Week honors.
Breeland – the team’s fourth-round draft pick in this past May’s NFL Draft – intercepted Tennessee Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst during the second quarter of the Redskins’ 19-17 victory.
But the rookie’s great play didn’t stop at just the turnover.
On the day, the Clemson product recorded five tackles, including two for loss.
His first tackle for loss – one that would set the Titans back to a 3rd-and-18 situation – was on wide receiver Kendell Wright.
Wright, who tried to juke several different players to gain some open running room, was upended by Breeland and stopped for a three-yard loss.
