Impactful in Week 12 win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-27

Simmons totaled five tackles (all solo), including one sack, and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 17-10 victory against Carolina.

Of Simmons' five tackles, three went for a loss, including a sack in the third quarter. His second-quarter recovery of a Bryce Young fumble was also key, as Derrick Henry rushed for a 10-yard touchdown two plays later. Simmons is up to 5.5 sacks on the season, which ranks second on Tennessee.

Will play at Pittsburgh

Simmons (ankle) does not carry an injury designation into Thursday's game at the Steelers.

Despite being limited at practice all week, Simmons looks to be a full go for Week 9. He's on pace for the first double-digit sack season of his career, and he figures to see a healthy number of chances to rush the passer Thursday against a Pittsburgh team that has attempted to throw the ball on 60.5 percent of its offensive snaps in 2023.

Limited to begin week

Simmons (ankle) was limited on Monday's estimated practice report.

Simmons had a big performance in Week 8, tallying a pair of sacks and a season-high six tackles in the 28-23 victory over Atlanta. He apparently suffered an ankle injury during the effort, and his status for Thursday's matchup with the Steelers is now in question.

Records sack in defeat

Simmons finished with a sack, three tackles and two assisted tackles in the Titans' 16-15 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

The two-time all-pro played in 95% of the snaps and made his usual impact in Week 1. Simmons helped Tennessee limit New Orleans to just 69 yards on the ground. The defensive end and his teammates will face a test next week against a Chargers offense that scored 34 points and ran for 234 yards in Week 1.

Feels fine after minor procedure

Simmons, who recently signed a four-year, $94 million contract extension, said Wednesday that he got his ankle "cleaned up" after the season and feels fine now, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Simmons missed two games (Weeks 10 and 17) during the 2022 campaign due to a lingering ankle injury, so it's not surprising to hear he had a minor procedure to address the issue. The 2019 first-round pick has 16 sacks over the last two seasons and is now under contract through the 2027 campaign.

Inks four-year extension

The Titans signed Simmons to a four-year extension Friday, Turron Davenport of reports.

It's worth $94 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Simmons was headed into the final year of his rookie deal on the fifth-year option, and he's now signed through 2027, his age-30 campaign. Selected 19th overall in the 2019 Draft, Simmons has 21 career sacks, with 16 of those coming over the last two seasons. He's proven to be one of the most disruptive interior defensive linemen in the league and will be a building block for Tennessee's defense for the foreseeable future.

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.

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.
