Shark Bites

Buccaneers LB Devin White (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. HC Todd Bowles told reporters Friday that White will be a "game-day decision." That's a little surprising after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday, but White did miss the past two games. We'll check his status Sunday but would bet he'll play. Tampa Bay ruled CB Carlton Davis (groin) out. DT Vita Vea (toe) is doubtful. CB Jamel Dean (ankle, foot) is questionable.

Recent Shark Bites

The Buccaneers started LB K.J. Britt in place of Devin White once again Sunday against the Jaguars. But Britt played just 3 snaps for the team while White took the other 63. That followed three straight inactive games for White and two weeks of at least 90% playing time for Britt. The down stretch for White started with an injury but then included the LB reportedly telling the team he couldn't go in Week 15 after being told Britt would keep getting playing time. Back in his old role against Jacksonville, White delivered cross-category production. He tallied a meager 4 tackles (2 solos) but added a half-sack among 2 QB hits, plus an INT among 2 passes defensed. According to FOX Sports' Greg Auman, co-DC Kacy Rodgers said before the game that White and Britt would both play "big roles" in the game. That it only proved true for White and he delivered a nice performance should mean a similar role in Week 17. You'll find White back in our LB rankings this week.

Buccaneers LB Devin White entered Sunday questionable with a foot injury. So when he turned up inactive against the Packers, that seemed to be the reason. But Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Bucs coaches told White ahead of the game that he wouldn't start. He responded that he "couldn't go," and was thus a healthy scratch. Barring some public change on that story, it's tough to see why Tampa would go back to White for Week 16. So don't plan to have the veteran LB available for IDP use. K.J. Britt took White's spot but collected only 6 tackles (3 solo, 1 tackle for loss). Lavonte David should be the only Bucs LB in your fantasy considerations the next two weeks.

Buccaneers LB Devin White (foot) is inactive for today's game against the Packers. That means another start for rookie LB Sirvocea Dennis, who's merely a low-level IDP option. CB Jamel Dean (ankle, foot) and DT Vita Vea (toe) are active. Vea's a surprise after he didn't practice all week and got listed as doubtful. His return helps the Tampa Bay run defense.

The Buccaneers have ruled LB Devin White (foot) out for the second straight game. That should mean a start for rookie LB SirVocea Dennis, who's off the final injury report after missing last week with an illness. LB LaVonte David is also ready to return after missing the past two games with a groin injury. Check our Week 14 LB rankings to see where each guy lands. David's week of full practices and his upside matchup has moved him way up vs. the start of the week. Tampa Bay has also ruled out CB Jamel Dean (ankle, foot). DT Vita Vea (toe) is questionable after missing all three practice days. His status shouldn't impact many IDP lineups, but his absence would improve the matchup for Falcons RBs.

Buccaneers LB Devin White (foot) and CB Carlton Davis (hip) are active for today's game against the Colts. Each should be OK for normal-level IDP usage. LB Lavonte David's absence (groin injury) increases White's tackle upside.
