Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Undergoes surgery, questionable for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon recently underwent ankle surgery and hopes to be ready to go for the regular season opener, Kevin Patra of reports.

The injury news comes as a bit of surprise. Bucannon reportedly opted to have the ankle procedure done because of lingering pain from last season. While he hopes to be ready for Week 1, there's a decent chance he'll wind up on the physically unable to perform list heading into the regular season, which would cost him the first six games of the year. In the meantime, this year's first-rounder Hassan Reddick figures to take on a heavier workload with Bucannon out.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals exercised the fifth-year option on Bucannon's (ankle) contract Wednesday, Darren Urban of reports.

Bucannon has made quite the impact during the first three seasons of his career, holding down the fort as a hybrid inside linebacker after entering the NFL as a safety. Prior to missing the final three games of the 2016 campaign due to a high-ankle sprain, he notched 91 tackles (66 solo), four passes defended and one fumble recovery. Bucannon enters the Cardinals' offseason program with a clean bill of health and is now locked into the team's plans through the 2018 season.

Cardinals' Deone Bucannon: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucannon suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's game against the Dolphins and will miss the rest of the season, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

According to head coach Bruce Arians, the biggest question mark surrounding Bucannon's predicament is whether he'll undergo surgery on his ankle. If a procedure aids Bucannon in the long term, he'll likely endure the knife in the near future. In any case, the upcoming absences will mark the first of his professional career, ending his season with 91 tackles (66 solo), four passes defended, and one fumble recovery on the ledger.
