Despite some optimism this week that Justin Simmons would be ready to go against the Tennessee Titans, the knee sprain he suffered against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8 is not yet well enough for him to go on Sunday. According to a report from Benjamin Allbright, the Denver Broncos will hold Simmons out this weekend.

Safety P.J. Locke is coming off a hamstring injury himself, but is good to start for Simmons this weekend. Locke has played well, but any time you lose an all-pro caliber starter its going to hurt. Fortunately for Denver, the Titans are not a big passing threat.

The Broncos also elevated both offensive tackle Quinn Bailey and defensive lineman Jonathan Harris off the practice squad on Saturday. That should help add some much-needed depth on the gameday roster along both lines. For Denver’s defense, the primary goal has to be stop Derrick Henry and the Titans rushing attack.
