Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Heading to Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu signed a contract with the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Attaochu had been without a team since the Chiefs released him Sep. 2. The 26-year-old appeared in 11 games for the Jets last season, recording nine tackles and two sacks. He'll likely provide the Broncos with linebacker depth in the wake of Bradley Chubb's season-ending knee injury.

Jeremiah Attaochu: Let go by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu was released by the Chiefs on Sunday.

Attaochu signed with the Chiefs in April, and he made it through the initial wave of roster cutdowns only to be released Sunday. The 26-year-old has 27 tackles and four sacks in 23 games over the last three seasons.

Chiefs' Jeremiah Attaochu: Heading to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu signed a contract with the Chiefs on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

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.

Jets' Jeremiah Attaochu: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Jeremiah Attaochu: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (concussion) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Texans, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

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.

Jets' Jeremiah Attaochu: Absent from Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Jeremiah Attaochu: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

The former 2014 second-round pick spent the offseason with the 49ers but failed to make the 53-man roster. Injuries have limited Attaochu's opportunities but if he can remain healthy he could carve out a edge rushing role with the Jets.

49ers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Back to work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

49ers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Dealing with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu has a hamstring injury and will not participate at practice Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Attaochu signed a one-year deal with the 49ers in March and is likely to fill a rotational role on the team's defensive line. The specifics and severity of the hamstring issue remain unclear.

49ers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Inks deal with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports. "Jeremiah has been quite disruptive during his career despite his limited opportunities playing behind some top tier defensive ends," general manager John Lynch said. "He is a wonderful fit for our scheme and our locker room. We expect Jeremiah to be productive on defense, while also providing us an exceptional player on special teams. He's another guy who fits the mold of a 49er."

Attaochu was a second-round pick by the Chargers back in 2014, but injuries over the past two seasons have limited his opportunities. Last season he spent most of the year as a healthy scratch, playing behind a deep linebacking corps.

Chargers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Healthy inactive Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu was a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Attauchu didn't make the cut for the Chargers this week, but even when he is active, he's a deep reserve option for the team's defensive unit.

Chargers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Free from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu was a full participant at the Chargers practice Sunday.

Attaochu was questionable for the season opener due to a hamstring injury and ultimately did not play. He appeared recovered from the issue prior to Week 2, as he logged full practices all week. However, he was ruled inactive for the team's loss to the Dolphins. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or just wasn't in the team's game plan. The 24-year-old is on track to make his season debut Sunday against the Chiefs unless he sees another healthy scratch.

Chargers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Listed as inactive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Attaochu will miss his second consecutive game even after playing three full practices in the week prior. Regardless, his main contributions are on special teams so the Chargers defense shouldn't suffer much from his absence.

Chargers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Attaochu put in three full practices this week after sitting out Week 1 and seems like he should be ready to play Sunday. The 24-year-old will likely serve as a reserve linebacker, although he could also make an impact on special teams.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chargers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Questionable for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's season opener against the Broncos, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Attaochu pulled a hamstring during a preseason game in mid-August and was limited throughout practice this week. The 24-year-old seems to be nothing more than a depth linebacker and special teams player, at least until fully healthy.

Chargers' Jeremiah Attaochu: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu is week-to-week with a pulled hamstring, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Attaochu suffered his injury during Sunday's preseason game. Given the vague timetable, it's unknown if he'll be back by the time the regular season rolls around. Expect Chris McCain and Joshua Perry to see some extra reps while Attaochu is sidelined.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu sustained a hamstring injury during Sunday's preseason game and has been ruled out for the remainder of the contest.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (foot) will be placed on injured reserve, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
