Buccaneers DT Clinton McDonald (hamstring) is active today against the Bears. It'll be his 1st game back after missing the past 4 (plus the bye). McDonald carries some re-injury risk and doesn't make for a great IDP play this week. He's in the mix generally in deeper leagues, though.
Buccaneers DT Clinton McDonald (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. He put in full practices Thursday and Friday after a limited workout Wednesday, which points to McDonald being able to play. We'll check on his status Sunday.
The Buccaneers have ruled out DT Clinton McDonald (hamstring) for the 4th straight game in Week 9. The defense expects to have DL William Gholston, however, according to Pewter Report, despite his questionable designation for a biceps injury.
Buccaneers DE Robert Ayers (ankle) appears likely to return this weekend for his 1st game since Week 2. He's questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders after putting in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday and a full workout Friday. DT Gerald McCoy is also questionable with the calf strain that has bothered him for several weeks. McCoy began this week off the injury report but showed up Wednesday and Thursday with only limited participation. DT Clinton McDonald (quad) will miss his 3rd straight game. He put in limited practices all week, so perhaps he'll be ready for Week 9.
Bucs DT Clinton McDonald is doubtful for Monday night's game at Carolina with a hamstring injury. With DT Gerald McCoy (calf) and DE Robert Ayers (ankle) also doubtful, the outlook only gets rosier for Panthers fill-in QB Derek Anderson.
Bucs DT Gerald McCoy is doubtful for Monday night's game after his calf injury kept him out of practice all week. His likely absence should put Clinton McDonald in more playmaking situations against an iffy Panthers O-line
The Buccaneers this week placed DT Clinton McDonald on IR with a torn pectoral muscle. He suffered the injury in the Week 7 loss at Washington. That further depletes an already-weak Tampa D-line group, though you shouldn't have been giving this team D much of a look in fantasy football anyway.
The Buccaneers have deemed DT Clinton McDonald doubtful for Week 8 with a pectoral injury after he missed practice all week. We'll check his status for Week 9 against the Giants. DT Tony McDaniel should start in his place, while DT Henry Melton could also see more playing time. Neither is an IDP target.
According to Pewter Report, the Buccaneers "look set on their starting front four" on defense, with Jacquies Smith and George Johnson at end and Gerald McCoy and Clinton McDonald inside. Smith flashed with 6.5 sacks over the final 9 games last season, while Johnson delivered 6 sacks in part-time duty with the Lions after 0 over the previous 4. McCoy ranks among the league's top DTs and led the Bucs with 8.5 sacks last season, while McDonald stepped up to produce 6 top-12 fantasy weeks among D-linemen. There's some fantasy-sleeper potential here, though it's an unproven line overall for Bucs team purposes.
Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (concussion) and DT Gerald McCoy (knee) are active for today's game at Carolina. Both had been questionable but expected to play. The Bucs won't, however, have DT Clinton McDonald (hamstring) or LB Mason Foster (Achilles'). Both are inactive but not huge losses for IDP owners. Go ahead and use David and McCoy as you normally would. Foster's continued absence should also keep LB Danny Lansanah a solid fantasy play.
Buccaneers LB Mason Foster and DT Clinton McDonald are inactive for today's game at Detroit. LB Lavonte David, however, will return after missing the past 2 weeks. Foster's absence should keep OLB Danny Lansanah in a full-time role, which gives him significant upside. He and David both look good for IDP usage this week.
Buccaneers DT Clinton McDonald is questionable again with a hamstring injury that kept him out for the entire practice week. Don't bet on him playing at Detroit on Sunday, and he'd be a risky IDP option even if he does.
The Bucs D will miss DT Clinton McDonald today against the Bengals. A hamstring injury kept him out of practice all week. Akeem Spence will fill in. The Bucs will have starting safety Major Wright, at least. He had been limited by a shoulder injury this week but put in a full workout on Friday.
