Broncos place safety Justin Simmons on IR

Posted: Updated:

Justin Simmons' breakout season is over because of a sprained left ankle he sustained while celebrating a rare big play by the Denver Broncos in their first victory in two months.
  
The Broncos placed Simmons on injured reserve Wednesday. He was injured in Denver's 23-0 win over the Jets on Sunday, their first win in 70 days.
  
Simmons jumped to body bump teammate Brandon Marshall following the linebacker's strip-sack of Josh McCown that resulted in a takeaway at the Jets 20-yard line in the first quarter.
  
Simmons landed awkwardly when he came down on Marshall's right foot and had to leave the game. He was replaced by fellow second-year safety Will Parks.
  
Coach Vance Joseph called the injury fluky, saying, "What do you say to Justin? Don't celebrate? Don't have fun?"
  
Simmons had hoped to miss just one game, Thursday night's visit to Indianapolis.
  
After showing flashes as a rookie, Simmons supplanted T.J. Ward as Denver's starting strong safety this summer and ranked third on the team with 63 tackles. He also had a sack, five pass breakups and two interceptions, including a pick-6.

    Radon is odorless and tasteless, so testing is the only way to know if you have elevated levels in your home. Southern Colorado has even higher radon potential because of the amount of granite in the soil.
