Head coach Vance Joseph said Gotsis sprained his shoulder during Thursday's preseason finale against the Chargers, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.
The Broncos are really hoping Gotsis' sprain isn't serious, as starters Jared Crick (back) and Derek Wolfe (ankle) are both on the shelf as it is. He'll presumably undergo further testing and more information should be available in the coming days.
Gotsis' knee procedure was merely a clean out and hasn't limited him since practice began. He's one of the team's top backups at defensive end, behind starters Derek Wolfe and Jared Crick.
Gotsis underwent a knee scope on Thursday to remove "floating" material in his knee, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.
Gotsis' procedure sounds intense, but he simply had his knee cleaned out and will be ready for the first week of training camp. He's slated to provide depth at defensive end behind Derek Wolfe (neck) and Jared Crick.
