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.
Gotsis (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Gotsis has been dealing with a sore ankle since Saturday, and while it's unclear in what capacity the defensive lineman is practicing Tuesday, it looks like the injury wasn't anything too serious given that he was only out a few of days.
Gotsis' injury doesn't appear to be anything serious, but his ankle soreness was bothersome enough to keep him sidelined for the team's walkthrough. He should be able to return to the practice field in a timely fashion as he continues to compete for a starting role at defensive end.
Gotsis was arrested last week in Atlanta due to an alleged rape, Robert Garrison and Troy E. Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
The incident in question occurred while Gotsis was a student at Georgia Tech in March of 2013. After turning himself in and posting bond Wednesday, potential charges and a court date are pending. As is tradition with such allegations, the NFL will allow the justice system to work itself out before levying any sort of punishment under the personal-conduct policy.
Gotsis (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Gotsis still doesn't play high snap counts, with his season high of 46 coming in Week 13 against the Dolphins. With just 30 tackles (20 solo) and one sack this season, he shouldn't be on many fantasy radars.
