Jeffery Simmons the 23-year-old defensive tackle is one year removed from ACL surgery and finally fully healthy, which could make all the difference for the Titans defensive line heading into the new season.
“[With] an ACL injury or meniscus injury, it’s a lot to get back to,” Simmons said. “Some people say they’re not themselves for a year or two. But when I went back and watched film, I knew that wasn’t me. I know what type of guy I am…There was a lot of stuff that I didn’t see on film that I know I could do, especially this upcoming year. Stuff that I’ve been working on.
“I had an injury for sure, but at the same time that’s the whole point of this year here — to see how much I can grow from that this past year. [The coaches] are going to put me in a great position to see how much I can get better from last year.”
