Attaochu spent the past season with the Jets, recording nine tackles (seven solo), two sacks and a forced fumble in 11 contests. Before that, he spent four seasons with the Chargers so the 26-year-old already has some familiarity with the AFC West.
Attaochu (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Attaochu lands on season-ending injured reserve due to a concussion initially sustained Week 14 against the Bills. Kevin Pierre-Louis (shoulder) and Brandon Copeland will continue see increased snaps for the Jets' last two games in Attaochu's absence.
Attaochu will not clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time to suit up against the Texans. The depth linebacker initially sustained a head injury during a Week 14 win over the Bills, and continues to manage his recovery. As long as Attaochu remains sidelined, expect Kevin Pierre-Louis (shoulder) and Brandon Copeland to receive an uptick in snaps.
Attaochu (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
Attaochu is nursing a concussion sustained during Sunday's 27-23 win over the Bills. If the depth linebacker is unable to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time for Saturday's tilt against the Texans, Brandon Copeland could be in line for a significant uptick in snaps.
Attaochu (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Attaochu won't be a starting defensive end in 2018. However, he'll still get his fair share of defensive snaps since Solomon Thomas is expected to shift to tackle on passing downs and Arik Armstead, who has missed 18 games due to injuries the last two seasons, is struggling with a hamstring injury. This means Attaochu may be put into pass-rushing situations when Thomas moves to the middle.
