Eight sacks in breakout season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-18

Koonce notched 43 tackles (32 solo), eight sacks and three forced fumbles in 17 games during the 2023 season.

Koonce blossomed into a formidable pass rusher across from second-team All-Pro Maxx Crosby (knee) throughout the latter stages of the season, as the former racked up six sacks and two forced fumbles from Weeks 15-18 alone. Koonce stayed fresh by rotating defensive snaps with 2023 seventh-overall pick Tyree Wilson, and this duo figures to compete against each other for a starting role again in 2024. Wilson might own the draft capital advantage, but Koonce now checks the proven production box.

Makes big impact Thursday night

Koonce registered three tackles (all solo), including two sacks, and forced two fumbles in Thursday's Week 15 63-21 victory versus the Chargers.

Koonce played just over half of Las Vegas' defensive snaps in the contest and made a big impact when he was in the game. The third-year defensive end set the tone early with a first-quarter sack of Easton Stick that resulted in a fumble that was recovered by the Raiders. Koonce repeated the feat on the final play of the third quarter, and this time the fumble recovery was taken in for a score by teammate John Jenkins. Koonce now has 32 tackles (24 solo), including 4.0 sacks, over 14 games on the campaign.

Good to go Monday

Koonce (groin) has no injury designation ahead of Monday night's game against the Packers.

Koonce went from a limited participant during Thursday and Fridays practices to a full participant Saturday, and he looks ready for Monday night. The third-year defensive end is primarily a special teams guy, playing on 86 percent of the Raiders' special teams snaps this year.

Dealing with injury

Koonce (groin) was a limited participant during practice Thursday.

Koonce handled his typical workload in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, so it's not clear when the third-year pro picked up the injury. However, with the Raiders not playing until Monday against the Packers, the Buffalo product will have an extra day to fully recover. He'll work to ramp up his activity in preparation for week 5 during practice Friday and Saturday.
