Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Totals 31 tackles in injury-shortened season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McDonald managed 31 tackles (21 solo) over six games in the 2015 season.

The 29-year-old tackle was on pace for one of the best seasons of his career before a torn pectoral muscle ended his 2015 campaign in early November. McDonald was on track to finish with a career-high 80 stops had he managed to play all 16 games, which would have obliterated his current high-water mark of 46 that he established during the 2014 season. An outstanding run stopper with above-average ability to rush the passer from the tackle position, McDonald has amassed 10.5 sacks over his career, although he notably failed to get to the quarterback during his time on the field in 2015. With the firing of head coach Lovie Smith and the majority of his defensive staff, McDonald and the rest of his defensive teammates remain up in the air regarding the scheme they'll operate under in 2016.

Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Placed on season-ending IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clinton McDonald (pectoral) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Though rightfully overshadowed by teammate Gerald McCoy, the 28-year-old McDonald emerged as a solid starter the past two seasons. In his absence, the Bucs will need more snaps from Akeem Spence, Henry Melton and Tony McDaniel (groin). None of the bunch warrants IDP consideration.

Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clinton McDonald (pectoral) is doubtful for Sunday.

It doesn't appear as if McDonald will be able to play Sunday however the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have yet to officially rule out their run-stuffing defensive tackle. With fellow defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (groin) also listed as doubtful on the team's official injury report, Tampa Bay could be without two of their top defensive tackles when they take on Devonta Freeman and the Falcons Sunday.

Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Misses practice for second consecutive day Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clinton McDonald (pectoral) was unable to practice for a second consecutive day Thursday, Joe Kania of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers official site reports.

The defensive tackle's chances of suiting up in Week 8 against the Falcons look to be trending downward after a second consecutive missed practice. McDonald's stout run-stuffing presence would be missed against Devonta Freeman and the Falcons in Week 8 were he to be sidelined. Friday will likely provide a more or less definitive answer on McDonald's prospects for taking the field Sunday.
