Tennessee Titans rookie Jeffery Simmons recorded his first career sacks in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
It didn’t take long for defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons to make an impact, as the Tennessee Titans’ 2019 first-round pick recorded his first career sack against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Simmons is making his 2019 debut on Sunday in Week 7 just eight months after suffering a torn ACL during pre-draft workouts. We thought Simmons’ snaps would be limited in his first action, but he’s getting plenty of run in his first game.
On the Chargers’ opening drive of the second half, Simmons took Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers to the turf for his first career sack.
Aside from that sack, Simmons has been producing plays all game lengthy. He’s been on a regular basis bulldozing his blocker and finding push into the Chargers’ backfield.
In all, Simmons has 3 tackles (two for loss) and the sack.
So far, the Titans rookie has been as advertised and is producing his presence felt, each against the run and pass. Tennessee will have pretty the formidable line moving forward if he can maintain up this level of play.
The Titans activated Simmons on Saturday immediately after releasing each Brent Urban and Matt Dickerson to make space for him.
Prior to the start out of the season, head coach Mike Vrabel hinted Simmons could make the 53-man roster for the reason that he was so ahead of schedule, but alternatively the rookie was placed on the Non-Football Injury list.
Nevertheless, Simmons seems to have been properly worth the wait and the Titans may possibly have gotten themselves pretty the steal with a guy who was as soon as projected to be a major 5 choose.
