  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Reaches 8.5 sacks

    Simmons recorded two tackles and one sack in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans.

    Simmons took down Davis Mills for a nine-yard loss late in the third quarter to record his first sack since Week 10. Despite the drought to close the season, Simmons' 8.5 sacks were a career-high figure. Similarly, Simmons managed no more than two tackles in each of his last four games, though he will still be relied upon as a big part of the Titans' defense as they attempt to reach the Super Bowl as the top seed in the AFC. The 2022 season could be the final year of Simmons' rookie contract, but Tennessee is likely to exercise his fifth-year option.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Delivers two sacks

    Simmons had four solo tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed in the Titans' 23-21 win over the Saints on Sunday.

    Simmons followed up his three sack performance in Week 9 against the Rams with two more Sunday, giving him 7.5 for the season. His four tackles brings his season total to 34, putting Simmons on pace to beat his season-best of 49. The 2019 first-round selection will look to keep his breakout campaign rolling into Week 11 against the Titans.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Good to go

    Simmons (ankle) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Rams,

    This news is somewhat surprising, as Simmons was a non-participant at practice all week until he logged a limited workload Friday. Still, it looks like the Titans were just erring on the side of caution with his practice workload. Barring any setbacks, look for him to resume his usual starting role at defensive end.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Unable to practice Thursday

    Simmons (ankle) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

    Simmons played 65 defensive snaps in last week's overtime win over the Colts but was forced to miss a second straight practice session with an ankle injury Thursday. If he's held out Sunday against the Rams, Amani Bledsoe will likely see additional playing time.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Gets after quarterback in loss

    Simmons recorded five tackles and one sack in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Cardinals.

    The Titans had trouble slowing the Cardinals' offense throughout the game game as they were gashed for 38 points. However, Simmons did make a contribution to the effort, taking down Kyler Murray for a seven-yard loss midway through the third quarter. Simmons will need to continue to make an impact as a pass rusher as the Titans attempt to mesh several new members of its secondary.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Stands out in padded practice

    Simmons made a number of strong plays in the team's first padded practice Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Simmons made a few effort plays throughout the practice, chasing down ball carriers and pressuring the quarterback. He'll be looking to build on a strong second professional season, during which he played 839 defensive snaps, recorded three sacks and forced a fumble. With a lot of turnover within the Titans' defense this offseason -- particularly in the secondary -- Simmons will be counted on as a key contributor in 2021.
