Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis (groin) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Lions. That should mean a playing-time boost for CB Jamel Dean, though he played just 78% of the snaps in a Week 15 return from his own groin injury. Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are in play for IDP use, but neither makes for a strong fantasy option.
CB Carlton Davis and the Buccaneers have agreed to a 3-year $45 million deal, according to multiple reports. Davis has played in 51 of a possible 65 games in 4 years since arriving as a 2nd-round pick, starting all but 1 of those contests. He has topped 1 INT just once among his 4 seasons but averaged 1.3 passes defensed per game over the past 3 years. Davis has also been a solid tackle collector for the position. He should be drafted in most CB-required leagues and is even worth a look in plenty of formats with generic DB slots.
The Buccaneers have activated CB Carlton Davis from IR. He has been out since Week 4 with a quad injury but follows the recent return of Sean Murphy-Bunting to get Tampa back to its season-opening CB group
The Buccaneers on Thursday placed CB Carlton Davis on IR with the quad injury he suffered Sunday night at New England. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Bucs expect Davis to miss 4-6 weeks. Tampa might get CB Jamel Dean back this week. He put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. Otherwise, Richard Sherman, Pierre Desir and Ross Cockrell (slot) look like the top corners.
Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's game at New England with a leg injury. Davis went down holding his left quad and then needed 2 trainers to help him off the field. He was putting no weight on the affected leg. We'll see about the diagnosis for Davis.
