by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Simmons sat out practice Wednesday, but it doesn't appear as though his knee injury was ever anything that really threatened his availability. The second-year pro looks set to draw his usual start at defensive end versus the Lions on Sunday.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Simmons battled a knee injury earlier in December but ended up playing through the injury. It's nevertheless concerning that the second-year defensive end sat out of practice altogether Wednesday. Thursday's practice capacity is important for his chances to play Sunday against the Lions.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Notches third sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons recorded four tackles, including one sack, and also defensed a pass in Week 12 against the Colts.

Simmons recorded his third sack of the season early in the third quarter and ended a Colts drive. He also helped the Titans play stout run defense, stuffing Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins on several occasions for short gains. Simmons has been a major part of the Titans defense this season, logging at least a 70 percent snap rate in all but one contest.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Dominant in win over Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons had three solo tackles, one pass defensed, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Bears.

Simmons displayed the abilities that made him a first-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft during Sunday's contest, putting constant pressure on Nick Foles even if it didn't directly translate to the stat sheet. His forced fumble of David Montgomery in the third quarter was likewise more impactful in context, as it allowed Desmond King to scoop up the ball for a 63-yard touchdown that would prove the difference in Tennessee's victory. Simmons has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Ready for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Bears, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Simmons returned to practice Friday in a limited fashion, and he showed enough to be cleared for Sunday's outing. The 2019 first-round pick is having a solid campaign, as he's recorded 25 tackles, two sacks and 11 quarterback pressures through six games. He has a decent chance to add to his sack total this week, as the Bears' offensive line has struggled and Nick Foles has been sacked on 5.3 percent of his dropbacks.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Simmons has carried a hefty burden this season, handling at least 85 percent of the defensive workload in four straight games. He recorded 18 tackles, two sacks and a pass breakup in that stretch. It's concerning that he wasn't able to practice at all Wednesday, but he has two more days to get onto the field and have a chance to play Sunday versus the Bears.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Gets to quarterback in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons recorded six tackles, one sack and two quarterback hits in Week 6 against the Texans.

Simmons made life difficult for Deshaun Watson throughout the game. He recorded his sack on third down early in the fourth quarter, forcing the Texans to punt. He also actively disrupted the run game, taking down David Johnson for gains of three or less on four occasions. The second-year player has taken a step up in his role this season, as he now has two sacks and 18 tackles across four games.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Activated from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons has been activated from the Titans' reserve/COVID-19 list, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

The 2019 first-rounder missed this past Tuesday's win over the Bills, but he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Texans. Simmons heads into Week 6 with 12 tackles and a pass deflection through his first three contests this season.

October 13, 2020 02:08 PM
Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Unavailable for Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (illness) won't be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Tuesday's game versus the Bills, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Simmons hasn't cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols and will sit out of the rare Tuesday night outing. Either Matt Dickerson or Larrell Murchison is expected to start at defensive end in Simmons' place, but both are expected to have a role on defense regardless.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Down 10 pounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons dropped 10 pounds during the offseason and looks to be in good physical shape, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website reports.

Simmons recorded 32 tackles, two sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss across nine games as a rookie in 2019. He was eased back into action, as he was recovering from a torn ACL before making his NFL debut in Week 7. The 2019 first-round pick is expected to start at defensive end and has the potential to make some noise this season.

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Flashes promise in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons recorded 32 tackles, two sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss across nine games for the Titans in 2019.

Simmons was eased back into action as he recovered from a torn ACL and didn't make his NFL debut until Week 7. The 2019 first-round pick flashed promise in limited opportunity for the remainder of the season, illustrating the ability to both rush the passer and stuff the run. Simmons should be in for a healthy offseason, giving him a strong chance to fully break out in 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Ruled out for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (knee) is inactive for the team's Week 16 matchup against the Saints, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Simmons' status came into question late in the week, when he was listed as questionable Friday. The team has been careful with its first-round rookie in his return from an ACL injury and will need him at full strength for a pivotal Week 17 matchup against the Texans. Matt Dickerson likely will see an increase in playing time in Simmons' absence.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
