Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Solid showing over 12 games in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald totaled 36 tackles (25 solo), including three for loss, along with 3.5 sacks over 12 games in the 2016 season.

The veteran tackle was able to play double the amount of games he had in 2015, when a pectoral injury cut short what was on pace to be a career season. He didn't exactly escape 2016 injury-free, as a hamstring injury cost him four games midway through the campaign. However, McDonald was once again productive when healthy, albeit not to the same extent as he'd been a year earlier. He posted six-and-eight-tackle efforts in Weeks 3 and 4, and was once again solid in the run game overall, posting the second-best tackle total of his seven-season career. He seemed to adapt well to the nuances of new defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme, which called for him to be a part of a wider variety of personnel groupings than in former head coach Lovie Smith's system. On the books for a modest $2 million cap hit in 2017, McDonald figures to once serve as a dependable presence in the middle of the Bucs' defensive line.

Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Contributes four tackles, sack in Week 16 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald tallied four tackles (one solo) and a sack in Saturday's 31-24 loss to the Saints.

The veteran tackle notched his first sack since back in Week 10 against the Bears. He also has 11 tackles over the last four games, despite getting shut out of the stat sheet versus the Cowboys in Week 15. McDonald remains a vital part of the Bucs' run defense, while also occasionally flashing the ability to collapse the pocket.

Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Records sack in return from hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McDonald (hamstring) recorded a sack and was credited with another quarterback hit in Sunday's 36-10 win over the Bears.

The veteran tackle's return from his multi-week absence was therefore at least modestly successful, although McDonald was not credited with any other tackles besides his sack on 24 defensive snaps. However, given his past body of work, he's certainly likely to return to his previous level of production as he gets more reps under his belt.

Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Full participant in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

McDonald hasn't played since Week 4 but figures to make his return this Sunday against the Bears. He could see his reps heavily monitored as he gets back into the swing of things, in which case Akeem Spence figures to see an increased defensive role.
