Jacksonville started rookie Ronnie Harrison place of veteran strong safety Barry Church on Sunday, and the Jaguars broke a seven-game losing streak by blanking the Indianapolis Colts 6-0.
Harrison delivered his first NFL sack in the game, coming through on a fourth-down snap at the Jacksonville 19-yard line in the fourth quarter.
On Thursday night for Jacksonville’s game against the Tennessee Titans, the Jaguars again had Harrison in the lineup. This time, Church was among the team’s seven inactive players for the game.
And Harrison delivered another career first — an interception.
With Tennessee leading 7-0 and on the move, Harrison intercepted a pass by quarterback Marcus Mariota at the Jacksonville 26-yard line and returned it 14 yards. He was tackled by running back Derrick Henry.
Harrison was a freshman at Alabama in 2015 when Henry won the Heisman Trophy for the Crimson Tide.
Harrison joined the Jaguars from the Crimson Tide in the third round of the NFL Draft on April 27.
