Quarterbacks should afraid of Kemoko Turay. Very afraid.
The former Rutgers defensive end is extremely quick and packs quite a punch when he’s able to get to the quarterback. Cleveland signal-caller Garrett Gilbert found out the hard way early in Saturday’s preseason contest between the Colts and Browns.
Just a few minutes into the contest, Turay bullrushed Gilbert on a 3rd-and-16 play, knowing the Browns needed to go to the air to pick up the first down. Turay beat the offensive lineman off the ball and delivered a big hit to Gilbert.
Below is the video of Turay’s sack from the Indianapolis Colts’ Twitter account:

Gilbert is probably still feeling that one this morning.
Turay, who was selected in the second round by the Colts in the 2018 NFL Draft, had a big night for Indianapolis. The former Scarlet Knight ended the night with three tackles, which included two stops for loss and the sack.
Last season as a rookie, Turay appeared in 14 games with three starts. He totaled 15 tackles and four sacks.
