Simpson sitting served secondary purpose

With Ko Simpson not seeing much action at all in the secondary Sunday, there were some wondering if his hold on the starting free safety job was tenuous. But head coach Dick Jauron indicated that putting Bryan Scott in the run front and on Antonio Gates was an opponent-specific move and also hinted that Simpson wasn’t quite 100 percent healthy anyway.

“I know Ko was fine with it team-wise,” said Jauron. “And it gave him a little more time to heal up. He practiced last week, but I think it was good for everybody all around.”

Good all the way around because the strategic decision to play Bryan Scott worked well and Simpson got an extra week of rest coming off the hamstring injury.
