Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Will suit up against Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.

Attaochu entered the day carrying a questionable designation after participating in a limited fashion throughout the practice week. He had largely been unavailable for contact drills since suffering the quad injury in late September, but recent progression provided optimism he'd be able to suit up for a Week 8 divisional clash. Attaochu is expected to make his first game appearance since Sept. 27 as a starter at outside linebacker.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Declared questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Attaochu returned to practice this week after missing three straight games, and he stayed on the field as a limited participant all week. The 27-year-old stands a good chance to return to the lineup Sunday, and he'd likely start at strong-side linebacker if he's active. Attaochu posted nine tackles and a sack through the first three games.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Ruled out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (quadriceps) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

After missing yet another week of practice, Attaochu will miss a third straight game. Malik Reed started in Attaochu's place Week 6 against the Patriots and is expected to remain in that role after posting two sacks.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Unlikely to return Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that it's "doubtful" Attaochu (quadriceps) plays Sunday versus the Chiefs, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Ataochu is expected to miss a third straight game. Malik Reed has been covering the starting duties while Attaochu sat out and is expected to remain in that role after posting two sacks in Week 6 against the Patriots.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Out Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (quadriceps) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

The 27-year-old hasn't seen the field since Week 3 against Tampa Bay and won't be available at New England. Malik Reed is poised for a heavy workload in Attaochu's absence, since Von Miller (ankle) is already sidelined.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Unavailable for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (quadriceps) won't play in Monday's game versus the Patriots, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

Attaochu didn't practice all week and will sit out a second straight game. With Von Miller (ankle) already out long term, Malik Reed handled a majority of the reps in Week 4 against the Jets and is slated to operate in a similar capacity Monday.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (quadriceps) has been ruled for Thursday's game against the Jets, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

It's unclear when Attaochu picked up the injury, but it will keep him out of Thursday's clash between win-less teams. He'll have 10 days to heal up before the Broncos' Week 5 trip to New England.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Notches sack Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu posted four tackles and a sack in Monday's 16-13 loss to the Titans.

Attaochu reclaimed last year's starting strong-side linebacker role following news that Von Miller (ankle) will miss the rest of the season, and he's off to a hot start in 2020. While he's not comparable to Miller as a pass-rusher, he fit the role against Tennessee with a sack, two QB hits and five QB pressures. This could be a sign of things to come for Attaochu, and he'll look to keep it rolling against Pittsburgh in Week 2.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Ticketed for larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu and Malik Reed are expected to share most of the snaps left behind by Von Miller's ankle injury, per coach Vic Fangio, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.

Attaochu recorded 3.5 sacks in 12 games while playing in a rotational role for the Broncos last season, but he'll be thrust into the spotlight with Denver's premier pass-rusher likely sidelined for the entire season.

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

Attaochu signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Broncos on Monday, Mike Klis of 9News reports.

Attaochu recorded 21 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 12 games for the Broncos last season. The 27-year-old linebacker is likely to remain in a rotational role in 2020.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Comes back in second quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu (lower leg) returned to Sunday's game against the Chargers, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

After leaving for a few series, Attaochu got back in action in the second quarter. It's a huge relief for the Broncos' defense since Von Miller (knee) is inactive.

Broncos' Jeremiah Attaochu: Departs from Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Attaochu was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with a lower-leg injury, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

Attaochu logged a season-high 46 snaps in Week 12's loss to the Bills, and he was due for another hefty increase in usage with Von Miller (knee) inactive. With Malik Reed (lower leg) also exiting the contest, the Broncos will be very shorthanded at outside linebacker. Justin Hollins and Ahmad Gooden figure to log increased duties, and an interior linebacker may need to bump outside.

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.
