  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Remains disruptive force

    Simmons recorded 53 tackles, 7.5 sacks and seven passes defended across 15 games in 2022.

    Simmons fought through an ankle injury for most of the season, an issue that cost him two games. Nevertheless, he topped 50 tackles for the second consecutive campaign and has 16 sacks across his last 33 contests. Simmons is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is a candidate to receive an extension this offseason.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Good to go Week 18

    Simmons (ankle) does not carry an injury designation ahead of Saturday's game against the Jaguars, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Simmons missed his second game of the season due to a lingering ankle injury during the Week 17 loss to Dallas on Thursday Night Football. The 25-year-old then remained limited in all three of Tennessee's practices of Week 18 prep, though he'll still be ready to suit up for his seventh game in the last nine weeks. Simmons ranks second on the team in sacks this season with 7.5, so his availability will be a significant boost as the Titan's poor pass defense tries to slow down Jacksonville quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the AFC South title on the line Saturday.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Remains limited Wednesday

    Simmons (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Simmons missed Week 17 due to a lingering ankle issue, which also sidelined him for Week 10. However, he's logged back-to-back limited sessions to start Week 18 prep and will have a good chance to suit up Saturday against the Jaguars. He'll have one more chance to submit a full session before Tennessee needs to make a decision on his status for the divisional matchup.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Not playing Thursday

    Simmons (ankle) will be out Thursday against the Cowboys, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Simmons has been dealing with an ankle injury for the majority of the season, which forced him to also miss Week 10 against the Broncos. With the team on a short week, Simmons will be unable to recover in time to take the field. In his absence, Mario Edwards and Kevin Strong should each get extra opportunities against Dallas.

  • Titans' Jeffery Simmons: Notches sack in loss

    Simmons recorded six tackles (four solo), including one sack, in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Chargers.

    Simmons finished as the Titans' second-leading tackler behind cornerback Greg Mabin, and he also contributed one of the team's three sacks against Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. The defensive end has dealt with an ankle injury over the past five weeks, though he still played a season-high 93 percent of Tennessee's defensive snaps Sunday. Simmons is now seven tackles and one sack away from matching his career highs in both of these categories, and he should have a chance to reach these marks against Houston's struggling offense Week 16.
