The Titans this week placed DT Jeffery Simmons on COVID reserve. He'll almost certainly miss at least 1 game. We'll see beyond that. At this point, it's getting hard to believe the Tennessee-Buffalo game will happen this Sunday. The Titans have not been allowed back to team headquarters since the rash of positive COVID tests following Week 3, and they're now reportedly in trouble for gathering to practice anyway away from team facilities.
The Titans spent the 20th pick of the NFL Draft on DT Jeffery Simmons. The Mississippi State product racked up 30 tackles for loss and 7 sacks over the past 2 years. He's recovering from an ACL tear that figures to slow the start of his rookie year, but there's significant long-term upside. A healthier Simmons was a top-10 prospect on some boards.
