INGRAM NAMED NFL DEFENSIVE ROOKIE OF THE MONTH
Jaguars linebacker Clint Ingram today was named Defensive Rookie of the Month by the NFL. During the month of November, Ingram started all four games registering 43 tackles, one interception and four tackles for loss.
The 6-2, 245-pound linebacker out of Oklahoma recorded double-digit tackles in three of four games and recorded a tackle for loss in four consecutive games. On November 5th against Tennessee, Ingram had his best game as a pro, registering a career-high 14 tackles en route to a 37-7 victory against the Titans.
The former third-round draft pick is the first rookie to start on defense this season for the Jaguars that is ranked fourth in the NFL. This is Ingram's first Rookie of the Month honor and the second honor awarded to a Jaguar this week. Earlier this week, Jaguars quarterback David Garrard was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
The last Jaguar to earn NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month honors was Rashean Mathis in November of 2003.
