62 THE WOLVERINE DECEMBER 2021 BY CLAYTON SAYFIE F ormer Michigan defensive end and current Indianapolis Colts rookie Kwity Paye has battled through a ham- string injury this season, missing two games, but has come on strong midway through the year. He hadn't made a hit on an opposing quarterback until he notched two in a 45- 30 win over the New York Jets in Week 9. The following week, he recorded the first sack of his career in a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, which spurred a three-game sack streak that included a forced fumble on Buffalo Bills quarter- back Josh Allen in Week 11. "I've been getting a whole lot of pres- sures," he said after his first sack. "It felt good to get one." Paye's three consecutive contests with a sack made him the first Colts rookie to do so since linebacker Darius Leonard from Weeks 2-4 in the 2018 season.
