Titans Rule Out Star Defensive Tackle For Week 10

The Tennessee Titans will be without a key player this week.

The Titans have ruled out star defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

Simmons has been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts. The defensive tackle has been able to suit up for the team's last two games, registering six tackles, one sack and one pass defended.
It appears the injury may have got worse this past week against the Kansas City Chiefs and, as a result, his next chance to play will come in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers. 

Thus far this season, the twenty-five-year-old has 30 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble and four passes defended over right games.    

In his absence, Mario Edwards should step into a starting role for Week 10's game against the Denver Broncos.
