  • Simmons recorded eight tackles and forced a fumble during Sunday's 34-33 win against the Vikings. Through two games, Simmons leads the Cardinals with 17 tackles, which is tied for 16th most in the league. But he's supplemented his tackle total with an interception and now a forced fumble, a call back to his productive career at Clemson. The eighth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Simmons will be going after his former teammate Trevor Lawrence in Week 3 when Arizona pays a visit to Jacksonville.

  • Simmons totaled nine tackles (seven solo), two pass breakups and one interception during Sunday's 38-13 win at Tennessee. Simmons picked up where he left off down the stretch last season, notching the second-highest tackle total of his career to date. He also recorded his second interception (and third forced turnover overall) in just his 17th appearance as a pro. The biggest change in his second pro campaign was his usage, as he logged a career-best 91-percent share of the Cardinals' defensive snaps. If Simmons continues to receive such a workload, he could hover near 10 tackles per game all year.

  • Simmons posted 54 tackles (43 solo, 4.5 for loss), two sacks, two pass defenses, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 16 contests during the 2020 campaign. The eighth overall pick in the 2020 draft, Simmons arrived in Arizona and found himself in a crowded LB corps. Once his rookie season kicked off, he didn't play more than 30 percent of the defensive plays in any of the first seven games, but after the team's Week 8 bye, he become more of a regular in the defense. Along the way, his versatility allowed him to see time at inside linebacker, outside linebacker, safety and slot cornerback en route to 33.9 percent of the snaps on defense. Depending on how the Cardinals proceed in the offseason, Simmons is a good bet to be a starter in 2021.

  • Simmons (neck/back) is active for Sunday's game versus the Giants. Starting linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) is also active, meaning Simmons likely won't start in Week 14. Simmons has played roughly 40 percent of the defensive snaps per game in a backup role, yielding 28 stops and two sacks over the past five outings.

  • Simmons (neck/back) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Starting linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) is also questionable. Simmons could have a starting opportunity on tap if he's able to play and Campbell is sidelined, but their final statuses may not be clear until 90 minutes before the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff when the inactives list is revealed.
