Two more Tennessee Titans are headed to Las Vegas for the 2022 Pro Bowl.

Defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons and offensive lineman Rodger Saffold were named to the AFC roster on Monday as injury replacements.

Simmons is replacing Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones, and Saffold is replacing Colts offensive lineman Quentin Nelson.

That makes four Titans on the AFC roster, which will be coached in Sunday's game by Mike Vrabel and the Titans staff. Safety Kevin Byard and outside linebacker Harold Landry also made the team.

TO DO LIST:Here's what must be on Tennessee Titans' checklist this offseason

Tennessee Titans offensive guard Rodger Saffold III (76) waits to take the field before the game against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFI Stadium Sunday, Nov. 7, 2021 in Inglewood, Calif.

Simmons was one of the notable snubs when the rosters were announced last month after producing a career-high 8.5 sacks and being named second team AP All-Pro. Simmons was even better in the Titans' playoff loss to Cincinnati, recording three sacks among eight tackles.

Saffold missed two games due to injury but otherwise had another solid season at left guard in front of Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry.

This is each player's first Pro Bowl selection.
