Former University of Kentucky linebackers Danny Trevathan and Avery Williamson each finished as his respective team’s leading tackler.

Trevathan had a game-high 10 tackles Sunday in the Denver Broncos’ 27-20 defeat of the San Diego Chargers. Eight of those were solo and one was for a loss.

That performance gave him 110 tackles for the season. He also had two interceptions this season, including one on Dec. 6 against San Diego that he returned for his first NFL touchdown.

It is the second time in four seasons that Trevathan has reached the 100-tackle mark. He only played three games last season because of injuries.

Williamson made a game-high nine tackles in the Tennessee Titans’ 30-24 loss at Indianapolis. Eight of those were solo, which pushed his season total to 102.

Williamson also had 3 1/2 sacks and one interception this season.


Titans teammate and fellow ex-Cat Wesley Woodyard made four tackles Sunday to give him 87 overall. He also had five sacks and one fumble recovery this season.
