Looks like the final stat line for Khalen says that he was in on 4 plays and was credited with an assisted tackle. Not a ton, but getting to play in a Super Bowl (and winning) in your rookie season is pretty special. There's a lot of really good players throughout history that never got to even compete for a championship.

That feeling when you're a proud Leatherneck alumni, a (relatively) new dad, and a Super Bowl winner...
