Former ASU DB Jordan Simone injures knee in first NFL action
Jordan Simone quickly became a fan favorite in Tempe after he made Arizona State’s football team as a walk on and produced for the Sun Devils.
The defensive back fulfilled his walk-on dream when he made it to the NFL, joining the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent.
However, his dream of making the roster might be put on hold for now after he left the Seahawks’ first preseason game of the season with an injury.
It was reported to be a knee injury. After attempting to make a tackle in the first half against the Los Angeles Chargers, he had to be helped off the field.
Simone played 22 games for ASU, where he tallied 191 total tackles, 13.5 of those for a loss, five sacks, four interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
