The Tampa Bay Times reports that Buccaneers LB Lavonte David sprained the MCL in his right knee in Sunday's loss to Washington. The Bucs haven't yet ruled him out for this Sunday's visit to the Giants, but the injury makes him seem unlikely for that contest -- and perhaps more time beyond that. We'll see how this situation progresses.

Buccaneers LB Lavonte David left Sunday's game against Washington early with a knee injury and is questionable to return. We'll keep an eye on the situation.

Update: David returned to the game.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (calf) is active for today's game against the Panthers. He missed the past 2 games with the injury but returns to boost the Tampa run defense for Week 9.

An MRI has confirmed that Buccaneers MLB Kwon Alexander tore his left ACL in Sunday's win over the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That will end the LB's season after just 6 games. It marks the 3rd time in his 4 pro seasons that Alexander has played 12 games or fewer (the 1st of those because of a PED suspension). LB Adarius Taylor played a season-high 62% of the defensive snaps against Cleveland. That marked the 4th straight week in which his playing time increased. Taylor certainly looks like the biggest beneficiary of the Alexander injury. We'd like to wait and see just how much the strong-side starter plays against the Bengals in Week 8 before using him in IDP lineups.

Buccaneers MLB Kwon Alexander left late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Browns after suffering a non-contact knee injury. He has been ruled out for the game. The situation looks potentially serious. We'll watch for updates after the game or tomorrow.

The Buccaneers have ruled DT Gerald McCoy (calf) and DE Vinny Curry (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Browns. Neither is a big IDP factor, but the absences of both starters can only help an already-bright fantasy outlook for Browns QB Baker Mayfield.

The Buccaneers have placed S Chris Conte on IR with a PCL tear. The veteran reportedly suffered the injury in the Week 2 win over the Eagles and then played on it in Monday night's loss to the Steelers. Conte has a chance to return this season but shouldn't be on any IDP rosters.

Buccaneers S Chris Conte left in the 1st half of Monday night's game against the Steelers with a knee injury and will not return. We'll see about the severity of the issue later this week.

Buccaneers S Chris Conte left Sunday's win over the Eagles early with a knee injury. He wound up playing just 54% of the defensive snaps after staying on the field for every play in Week 1. We'll see about Conte's status leading up to Week 3.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) is active for today's game against the Eagles. He began the practice week sidelined but returned to practice Thursday and Friday. He appears fine for normal IDP use.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Buccaneers consider DE Jason Pierre-Paul's knee injury to be minor. That suggests JPP should be able to play through his "questionable" tag against the Eagles today. We'll confirm his status when early-game inactives come out, but plan to use Pierre-Paul as you normally would in IDP leagues.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles with a knee injury. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'll see about JPP's status Sunday morning.

Buccaneers DE Jason Pierre-Paul missed practice Wednesday and had a brace on his right knee. The specific injury? "My knee is jacked up. Banged up," Pierre-Paul told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. "Ask me if I can play Sunday, I don't know." Guess we'll see how the jacked-up knee progresses. Losing JPP would hurt the already boom/bust outlook for the Bucs team D, but you'd be buying the turnover upside on Eagles QB Nick Foles more than the Bucs' sack potential.

After trading back from #7, the Buccaneers spent the 12th pick of the NFL Draft on DT Vita Vea. It looks like a nice pickup for the Tampa Bay defense, but Vea also seems unlikely to make a big IDP impact. He topped out at 6.5 tackles for loss at Washington.

Buccaneers DE Robert Ayers (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Buccaneers OLB Lavonte David (hamstring) and DT Gerald McCoy (biceps) are active for today's game against the Panthers. Each entered the day questionable after missing Week 15. David's the better option to go ahead and use. Neither sits high at his position in our Week 16 IDP rankings, though. CB Ryan Smith (ankle) is inactive after entering the weekend doubtful.

The Buccaneers have ruled out DE Robert Ayers for Sunday's game against the Panthers with a shoulder injury. DT Gerald McCoy (biceps) and OLB Lavonte David (hamstring) are questionable after missing Monday night's loss to the Falcons. David put in limited practices all week. McCoy progressed to a full Friday practice after beginning the week limited. Both appear to be trending toward playing. We'll confirm their statuses Sunday morning.

Bucaneers S Justin Evans left Monday night's game in the 2nd quarter with an ankle injury and did not return. We'll see about his participation heading into Week 16, but the situation makes an already-inconsistent IDP option worth benching.
