The Buccaneers expect LB Lavonte David to miss the rest of the regular season after suffering a foot sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Saints, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. The team is reportedly "hopeful" that David can make it back during the playoffs. Kevin Minter will step up to a full-time role in the meantime.
The Buccaneers on Thursday placed LB Lavonte David on IR with his foot injury. That means he'll miss the rest of the regular season and can be dropped in IDP leagues (if you didn't do so already). Kevin Minter is in line for full-time snaps next to Devin White.
Buccaneers LB Lavonte David left Sunday night's loss to the Saints in the 4th quarter with a foot injury. We'll see about the severity this week. His absence would push Kevin Minter into a full-time role.
Buccaneers LB Lavonte David, EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder, hand) and CB Richard Sherman (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Saints.
The Buccaneers have ruled LB Lavonte David (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Bears. That will once again make Kevin Minter a starting-level player alongside Devin White. Tampa also ruled out CB Richard Sherman (hamstring), leaving the defense without a recent free-agent addition who stepped into the starting lineup after injuries forced each of the season-opening top 3 corners to miss time. With Carlton Davis and Sean Murphy-Bunting on IR, Jamel Dean, Ross Cockrell (slot) and Dee Delaney look like the top 3 at CB.
Buccaneers LB Lavonte David suffered a low-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's better than the high-ankle sprain that the Bucs initially feared. It does mean he'll miss Thursday night's game at Philadelphia. Rapoport adds that David will be "week-to-week" beyond that. LB Kevin Minter filled in for David after he left Week 5 and figures to see full playing time while David is out.
