Buccaneers linebacker Danny Lansanah (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. It was an upgrade from yesterday's limited status and further opens the door for Lansanah to be on the field against the Saints on Sunday. The 30-year-old will be replaced by Bruce Carter at his strong-side spot if he experiences any regression with his ankle between now and game time in Week 2.
Buccaneers linebacker Danny Lansanah (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. Though he has a starting job, Lansanah won't be an every-down player, with Lavonte David and Kwon Alexander operating as Tampa Bay's linebackers in the nickel. If Lansanah doesn't play Sunday, either Bruce Carter (ribs) or Jeremiah George will likely get the start.
Buccaneers linebacker Danny Lansanah (ankle) was upgraded to limited participation in Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Lansanah had racked up a team-high five stops against the Titans in the opener before the injury, and is being counted as a key component of Lovie Smith's defense at strong-side linebacker. With Bruce Carter also exiting Sunday's game after taking a helmet to the ribs on the opening kickoff, the Bucs currently find themselves thin at the position. Although Carter is listed as probable for Sunday, the team would ideally like to see Lansanah, who wrested the starting job from him late in the preseason, take the field in Week 2 against the Saints.
