Cardinals plan to expand rookie LB Isaiah Simmons' role vs. Seahawks: 'It's time'

"To his credit, he's been patient," defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said, via the team's official website .

"He's been frustrated, but he's been patient and waiting his turn, learning and working in practice.

Joseph and coach Kliff Kingsbury didn't want to heap too much on the rookie's plate too soon with the offseason program sideswiped by COVID-19.

In the Week 7 overtime win over Seattle, Simmons played just five defensive snaps.

Simmons played more in Sunday's dramatic win over Buffalo after veteran inside linebacker  De'Vondre Campbell  suffered a calf injury.

Thursday's marquee NFC West showdown between the Cardinals and Seahawks kicks off in Seattle at 8:20 p.m.
