    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Manages 12 tackles in Week 17 loss

    David managed 12 tackles (four solo), a forced fumble and a sack in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers. The fourth-year pro wrapped up another outstanding campaign with his seventh double-digit tackle afternoon of the season. David impressively contributed across virtually defensive category in 2015, collecting a career-high 147 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries three interceptions, 13 passes defensed and one defensive touchdown. He and rookie standout Kwon Alexander formed a formidable duo that should only get better next season, and David was an integral component of a Bucs defense that limited opposing running backs to 3.4 yards per carry, second-best in the NFL. Having just completed the first year of a five-year, $50.25 million contract extension, David is set to serve as a centerpiece of the Tampa defense for many seasons to come.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Collects eight tackles in Week 15 loss

    David collected eight tackles (six solo), including one for loss, in Thursday's 31-23 loss to the Rams. The four-year pro spearheaded the linebacking corps in the absence of both Kwon Alexander (suspension) and Bruce Carter (foot/ankle). David did actually total less stops than his first game without Alexander in Week 14, but recorded a tackle for loss for the third straight week and helped Tampa shut down Todd Gurley overall. The defensive standout has now totaled 32 tackles (22 solo), including for for loss, and an interception over his last three games.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Tallies 13 tackles in Week 14 loss

    David (ankle) totaled 13 tackles (10 solo), including a tackle for loss, and two passes defensed in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Saints. The standout linebacker shook off a mid-week ankle tweak to post his second-highest number of total stops on the season, and a season-best figure in solo tackles as well. David stepped up to help pick up the slack in the absence of standout rookie Kwon Alexander (suspension), and was an integral part of the Bucs holding the Saints to a minuscule 2.5 yards per rush on the afternoon. The four-year pro and his defensive teammates have the tall order of attempting to slow down Todd Gurley on a quick turaround in Tampa's Week 15 Thursday Night Football road tilt versus the Rams.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Active Sunday

    David (ankle) is active Sunday against the Saints. David returned to practice on a limited basis Friday after missing Thursday's action, and has remained confident throughout the week that he would play in Sunday's matchup. It looks like that confidence is warranted, as he's set to suit up and fulfill his starting outside linebacker role. The 25-year-old logged 67 defensive snaps last week against Atlanta, where he collected 11 combined tackles and an interception.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Officially questionable, expected to play

    David (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. After returning to practice as a limited participant Friday, David said he will be fine for Sunday's game against the Saints, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Doesn't practice Thursday

    David (ankle) was held out of practice Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Currently fifth in the NFL with 105 tackles, David has supported his IDP case with three interceptions (one for a touchdown), two sacks, and one forced fumble. However, his availability in the short term is in peril, as he tweaked his right ankle during Wednesday's practice, resulting in limited and no activity level to commence Week 14 prep. Friday's injury report will relay his potential to play Sunday against the Saints, but the decision could come down to a game-time call.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Tallies 11 tackles, game-saving interception in Week 13

    David tallied 11 tackles (six solo), two tackles for loss and a game-saving interception in Sunday's 23-19 victory over the Falcons. The fourth-year pro was outstanding Sunday, turning in his fifth double-digit tackle outing of the season and making a leaping game-saving interception of a Matt Ryan pass with 1:39 left to close out the victory. The productive afternoon marked David's second game with multiple stops behind the line of scrimmage, and his third contest overall this season with at least one. The 25-year old also went over the 100-tackle mark on the year, making him a perfect four-for-four in his career in terms of hitting the century mark in stops. David and his teammates face another tough intradivision offense in their Week 14 home tilt versus the Saints.

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: In on 74 snaps in Week 12 loss

    David played on all 74 defensive snaps in Tampa's Week 12 loss to the Colts, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. A week after receiving his first snaps off on the season, David was back to remaining on the field for all of Tampa's defensive plays. That appears to be the norm as long as the Bucs are in involved in anything resembling a competitive game, which has been the case in all but two games so far this season. David should be in for another active afternoon in Week 13 versus a potential Falcons running back combo of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
