Though the Broncos' 3-4 defensive alignment doesn't afford Gotsis many favorable pass-rushing opportunities, he's now notched sacks in back-to-back weeks. Even so, his ceiling is still far lower in IDP circles than outside linebackers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb, who both surprisingly failed to provide much pressure on quarterback Derek Carr on Monday.
Gotsis recorded four tackles (two solo) and a sack during Sunday's 23-22 win over the Chargers.
Gotsis managed to bring down Philip Rivers for his first sack of 2018 and the third one of his three-year career. The defensive end also has eight tackles over his past two contests after accumulating just four in the three games prior.
Gotsis (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Jets.
Gotsis was correct when he claimed his availability for Week 5 wouldn't be impacted by a minor knee issue, so he'll start at defensive end across from Derek Wolfe.
Gotsis (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.
Gotsis is personally confident in his availability for Sunday, but he was limited Thursday and Friday after failing to practice Wednesday. If he were to suffer any sort of setback, DeMarcus Walker and Zach Kerr could see additional snaps at defensive end across from Derek Wolfe.
Gotsis' (ankle) case from a 2013 incident at Georgia Tech has been dropped, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic Denver reports.
Since his arrest in March, Gotsis has been in legal limbo. Per Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr.: "After a careful and thorough investigation, The Fulton County District Attorney's Office has decided not to proceed with the case against Mr. Adam Gotsis. My office understands the sensitivity and significance of these investigations, but the evidence presented does not warrant any further action in this case." With the issue behind him, Gotsis will await word on whether the NFL deems a punishment necessary.
