The Broncos placed Simmons (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports.

Simmons suffered a left high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Jets, and although the injury was initially believed to be minor, it will cost him the final three games of the season. The 24-year-old finishes his second NFL campaign with 68 tackles (49 solo), a sack and two interceptions in 13 games. Will Parks will likely serve as Simmons' primary replacement at strong safety the rest of the way.
