Tennessee Titans defensive tackle, Jeffery Simmons, should be ready for action in the Week 7 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Tennessee Titans selected defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft despite knowing of an injury that could delay his debut.
"“I am just glad to be back out there,” Simmons said. “I have been waiting on this all year, trying to get back healthy. … I just have to trust the process and do what they ask me to do.”"
The former Mississippi State graduate was touted as a potential top-five talent in the draft, and it’s not every day an athlete with such pedigree falls into your lap.
I’ve decided not to address Simmons’ past, as I can’t stand when players are defined by storylines.
For Simmons, the future is now, and the past is just that. The Titans are hoping they’ve added another elite, foundational piece to their already outstanding defense. So, let’s focus on the player, not the story.
How does he affect the pass rush? Can he solidify the defensive line in their quest to shut down the run? Let’s get into it.
