It didn’t take long for Matt Jones to find a new team.
The Colts claimed the third-year running back off waivers Sunday following his release from the Redskins on Saturday, NFL Network reported
Jones began last season as the Redskins’ starting rusher before suffering an injury in Week 7. He had played well up until that point, averaging 4.6 yards per carry, including a 135-yard performance the week before getting hurt. He did, however, struggle to hold onto the ball and later fell on the team’s depth charth before eventually being waived.
J.J. Watt has just one career interception and he finished that game without a sack — although he did manage to return his pick 80 yards for a touchdown. T.J. Watt didn’t get as far, but it was still an impressive display of athleticism to make the grab.
The last time the Steelers had a player finish with two sacks and an interception was in 2010 when LaMarr Woodley did it in a 23-7 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Watt is only the 11th player to ever do it as a rookie and the first in NFL history to do it in Week 1 of his rookie season.
His other brother, Derek Watt, is a fullback for the Los Angeles Chargers and will kick off his 2017 season on Monday night. That meant he had a chance to watch both of his brothers play and he was fired up for T.J.
