Leads team with nine tackles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Whitehead had nine tackles (seven solo), including one tackle for loss in Sunday's 30-10 loss to Dallas.

After notching three interceptions in Week 1, Whitehead was the Jets' leading tackler in Week 2. The 26-year-old safety is off to a strong start in his second season with the Jets, and sixth NFL campaign overall.

Picks off Allen thrice

Whitehead recorded three interceptions to go with two tackles (one solo) in Monday's 22-16 overtime win over the Bills.

Whitehead didn't have more than two interceptions in any of his first five NFL seasons, but he has already surpassed that total just one game into the 2023 campaign after picking off Josh Allen three times. Known primarily for his tackling, Whitehead could make New York's impressive secondary even more fearsome if his newfound ballhawking continues.

Career-best 89 tackles in 2022

Whitehead totaled a career-high 89 tackles (58 solo) to go with two interceptions and eight passes defensed in 2022.

The physical safety played in all 17 games in his first season with the Jets, and he was a key cog in one of the league's stingiest secondaries. Whitehead has one more year left on his contract, so he's expected to reprise the starting strong safety role for Gang Green in 2023.

Will play Sunday

Whitehead (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of reports.

Whitehead appeared on the team's injury report Wednesday and closed out the week with limited practices. The fifth-year safety's ability to suit up should be a boon for the team's secondary and also help them play spoiler to the Dolphins' playoff chances.

Availability up in the air Week 18

Whitehead (hamstring) is considered questionable to play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Whitehead popped up on Wednesday's injury report with a hamstring injury, which left him limited for each practice leading up to Sunday's regular-season finale. The fifth-year safety has recorded a career-high 85 tackles, seven passes defended and two interceptions across 16 games this season. With fellow starter Lamarcus Joyner (hip) already ruled out and Ashtyn Davis (ankle) questionable to play, it will be worth monitoring Whitehead's status on the Jets' final inactives list released 90 minutes ahead of Sunday's 1 pm E.T. kickoff.
