At the end of the regular season, Geno Atkins had 8.0 sacks and was tied with Dan Wilkinson for the team’s single-season sack record by an interior lineman. On Wednesday, he lost it.
The team’s individual sack totals have been changed due to a play review by Elias Sports Bureau. Atkins and Robert Geathers each lost half a sack from the fourth quarter of the Week 14 game against Houston. Gaining half a sack each are Jonathan Fanene and Michael Johnson.
That now means Atkins is at 7.5, Fanene is at 6.5, Johnson goes to 6.0 and Geathers is at 2.5.
The lost half sack also means that Atkins did not lead all NFL interior linemen in sacks, but instead tied with DT Tommy Kelly of Oakland at 7.5. Also, Wilkinson again holds the team record alone at 8.0 from 1995.
With Fanene getting half a sack, he now has a career high. He had 6.0 in 2009.
