    Simmons (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Ellie Kinney of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Simmons popped up with a knee sprain following Denver's Week 9 bye, leaving him sidelined for Sunday's loss to the Titans.

  • Broncos' Justin Simmons: Questionable to play Week 10

    Simmons (knee) is considered questionable to play Sunday against the Titans, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Simmons popped up with a sprained knee coming off Denver's Week 9 bye and did not practice Wednesday. However, he logged back-to-back limited sessions Thursday and Friday, leaving his availability against Tennessee up in the air.
