Bucannon (ankle) practiced fully Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Completing his first uncapped practice since landing on the injury report last week, the dollar linebacker should resemble his versatile self Sunday in Atlanta. With 7.4 tackles per game on the season, Bucannon is on pace for a career-best 118 stops.
Bucannon (ankle) was listed as limited on Wednesday's injury report, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Bucannon only required one limited session last week in order to log all 58 defensive snaps Sunday at Minnesota. However, he posted a season-low three tackles (all assisted). With elevated health this Sunday against the Falcons' third-ranked offense, he should uphold his status as the Cardinals' top IDP consideration.
Bucannon (ankle) is listed as active Sunday in Minnesota, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. Contained to one limited practice this week, Bucannon will play through an ankle injury as he attempts to maintain his team lead in tackles from the dollar linebacker position.
Head coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Bucannon (ankle) is expected to play Sunday at Minnesota, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. With back-to-back DNPs to begin Week 11 preparation, the Cardinals were potentially facing life without the dollar linebacker for at least a game. However, he returned in a limited fashion Friday and was deemed questionable for the upcoming contest, per Darren Urban of the team's official site. If Arians' belief comes to fruition, the Cardinals' leading tackler will be key in their attempt to throttle Minnesota's sputtering offense.
Bucannon (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. The availability of the team's leading tackler is suddenly up in the air, but the development could be a precautionary measure for a player that has yet to miss a game in two-plus professional campaigns. An IDP consideration with 68 tackles in nine games, Bucannon's practice reps will be watched closely as the week unfolds.
