Colts: 3 sneaky matchups to watch out for vs Texans

2. Jonathan Greenard at defensive end
Defensive End Jonathan Greenard has been a much-needed spark for Houston’s defensive line…when he actually plays.
Greenard has missed time this season due to illness and injury, but it looks like he’s set to play this week against Indianapolis.
Last week against the Patriots, he was healthy, and got a huge sack on Mac Jones to show for it. That was his second sack of the season, with the first being a strip sack against Carolina a few weeks prior. The 24-year-old DE is young and energetic, and head coach David Culley has plenty of praise for him.
"“He actually gave us a big boost in the defensive line because of the way he’s playing,” said Culley after their loss last week."
Through three games, Greenard has three tackles for loss in addition to his sacks.
The Colts offensive line has to protect Carson Wentz and keep Greenard at bay if they are to avoid an upset.
