Jeffery Simmons opens the season on the NFI list

NFL: Tennessee Titans-Minicamp Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday Mike Vrabel sent us into a bit of a frenzy when he left the door open for Jeffery Simmons opening the season on the 53 man roster. However, that didn’t happen, and that shouldn’t be a surprise. The Titans placed him on the NFI list today when getting the roster to 53.

Simmons cannot practice with the team for the first 6 weeks of the season. After the initial 6 weeks the team will have 6 weeks to decide whether or not to add him to the active roster.

Simmons is way ahead of where they expected him to be at this point by all accounts. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him on the field around week 8.

Stay tuned to MCM for a lot more on the initial 53 man roster. We will also be tracking the waiver process and the practice squad through tomorrow. Week 1 is here!
