Marcell Dareus broke his foot vs. the Jets but kept playing in Week 17

Marcell Dareus played through a broken foot on Sunday.

Marcell Dareus is one tough man. The Buffalo Bills defensive tackle broke his foot on Sunday against the NY Jets but played through the injury. Dareus shared the following on his Instagram on Monday:

Broke my foot in the 4 qtr, but I had to finish the game for my team. I love Buffalo



Dareus finished Buffalo's season finale with three solo tackles and one quarterback hit. The QB hit was a key play for the Bills as Dareus' hit on Ryan Fitzpatrick led to a poor pass that was intercepted by Manny Lawson. 

The defensive tackle finished the 2015-2016 season with 51 total tackles and two sacks. Although some will claim that Dareus had a poor season when looking at his stats, that couldn't be further from the truth. Dareus was outstanding in run defense for Buffalo this season and was one of Buffalo's best defensive players this season.
