Byrd is Rookie of the Month

Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd has been named the NFL defensive Rookie of the Month for October.

Byrd, a second-round draft pick out of Oregon, is the first rookie with five interceptions in a month since Chicago Bears safety Mark Carrier in 1990. Byrd also is the first rookie with two interceptions in back-to-back games since Dallas Cowboys cornerback Everson Walls in 1981.

Byrd's five interceptions lead all rookies and are second in the NFL behind New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper, who has six.
