Deone Bucannon Fantasy Football News 2019

The Buccaneers have reached a 1-year deal with LB Deone Bucannon, according to multiple reports. That's not the kind of contract that will guarantee Bucannon a starting job, but he rejoins the HC (Bruce Arians) who led the team that drafted him back in 2014. Bucannon also joins a Bucs D that's about to lose MLB Kwon Alexander to the 49ers. Bucannon's likely headed to that spot, barring some other addition to the corps this offseason. He might have to compete with 2018 rookie Adarius Taylor for that job. It'll be an interesting LB corps to watch this offseason.

The Cardinals have ruled ILB Deone Bucannon out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Bucannon did, reportedly, avoid serious injury to the joint that required surgery in the spring. But he didn't participate in any practice this week. We'll see about Week 14.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon left Sunday's win over the Jaguars with an injury to his right ankle, HC Bruce Arians told reporters afterward. That's particularly bad news, because that's the ankle that kept Bucannon out all offseason following spring surgery. We'll see about the specific diagnosis.

Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. There had been hope he'd be ready to make his 2017 debut vs. Dallas, but Bucannon clearly needs more time. We'll need to see him in at least 1 game before putting him into any IDP lineups. Don't be surprised if he returns to a limited role early on.

Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon is expected to make his season debut Monday against the Cowboys. According to Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM in Arizona, Bucannon will be on a snap count in his return game. The veteran put in limited practices all week and missed the full offseason, training camp and preseason following ankle surgery. Karlos Dansby remains the only usable Cardinals ILB in IDP leagues.

The Cardinals have ruled LB Deone Bucannon out for Sunday's game at Detroit. It's not surprising after he missed practice all week. We'll see if the veteran is ready to participate in Week 2. Rookie Haason Reddick figures to start in his place after spending training camp and the preseason working there.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon returned to actual practice Tuesday for the 1st time since having ankle surgery back in May. "He's right on schedule," HC Bruce Arians said, per 98.7 FM in Arizona. "He's got to get in football shape real fast." The coach said they'll need to track Bucannon's progress, but the plan is reportedly for him to start next to Karlos Dansby in Week 1 at Detroit if the veteran proves ready. We wouldn't bet on a full load of snaps right away after such a long layoff, however. Look for rookie Haason Reddick -- who has been filling in for Bucannon -- to mix in. Dansby looks like the best IDP bet among the 3 to open the year.

The Cardinals on Tuesday activated LB Deone Bucannon off the PUP list, but he's not yet practicing. The team website reports that HC Bruce Arians wanted Bucannon active so that he could participate in walkthroughs, with the hope that the LB will be ready to practice next week. “We haven’t been counting on Deone,” Arians said. “That’s going to be a blessing (if he plays).” Bucannon has been out since spring ankle surgery and makes for a high-risk pick in IDP leagues.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon recently had surgery to repair the ankle injury that landed him on IR in December. Bucannon played through the issue for much of the year, according to the team website, before missing the final 3 games. He hoped to be able to rehab the injury without surgery but finally had to go under the knife. “We think, if everything goes perfect, he’ll be ready,” HC Bruce Arians said, referring to the start of the regular season. “But there’s always that chance that it won’t.” We'll see this summer how perfectly everything works out. In the meantime, rookie Haason Reddick is expected to work in Bucannon's spot.

The Cardinals on Tuesday placed LB Deone Bucannon on IR with an ankle injury. The team website lists Sio Moore -- previously with the Colts and Chiefs -- as the next guy up at Bucannon's spot. Moore has showed the ability to post numbers, but this isn't the time of year to bet on unknown playing time, especially for a guy who has already been dumped by 2 other teams this season.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He carries some re-injury risk, however, after he only managed a limited workout Friday following 2 days on the sideline. DB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) is out for the 2nd straight game despite some optimism during the week that he'd be ready to play.

Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon (ankle) and DB Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota. Bucannon returned for a limited practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Mathieu put in limited workouts all week after missing just the Week 10 game against the Niners (following an initial 3-4 week timetable on his injury). We'll check on the status for each player Sunday, though neither looks like a strong IDP option for Week 11 even if active.

Cardinals DB Tyrann Mathieu put in a limited practice Wednesday after missing Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. The Arizona Republic reports that it's not yet clear whether we can expect Mathieu to play in Week 11. IDP owners should look elsewhere even if he returns. LB Deone Bucannon missed Wednesday's workout with an ankle issue. We'll see about his status throughout the week. Bucannon didn't miss any snaps in the win over the Niners.

Cardinals S Deone Bucannon is active for today's game at San Francisco after passing through the concussion protocol this week. Use him as you normally would in your IDP league.

Cardinals S Deone Bucannon joined the injury report Thursday after suffering an apparent concussion in Wednesday's practice. Bucannon returned to practice Friday, however, after clearing the league protocol, according to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. The team deemed him questionable for Sunday's game against the Niners. “I’m going to be very careful with Deone,” HC Bruce Arians said. “I have to fight him, but we’ll be careful.”
