Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Works with first-team defense in OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bond worked with the first-team defense during Tuesday's OTAs, Joe Kania of Buccaneers.com reports.

The 2016 sixth-round pick missed all of last season with a hamstring injury that he's long recovered from, and he'll apparently get the first opportunity to win the starting strong-side linebacker job that the since-departed Daryl Smith held last season. Bond is expected to eventually face stiff competition for that role from 2017 third-round pick Kendell Beckwith, who is still recovering from a ACL tear he suffered last November while playing with LSU.

Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Could get starting job on strong side
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bond (hamstring) could have a chance to start at strong side linebacker, Roy Cummings of WFLA.com reports.

A 2016 sixth-round selection, Bond missed his entire rookie year with a hamstring injury while Daryl Smith (free agent) served as Tampa's starter on the strong side. Smith only logged 476 defensive snaps despite playing all 16 games, with Lavonte David and Kwon Alexander serving as the three-down linebackers. Unless David and/or Alexander suffers an injury, there won't be room for another IDP contributor in the Tampa linebacking corps. Bond also figures to face competition for a role which isn't all that important in today's NFL. His hamstring should be fully healed by training camp, if it isn't already.

Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bond (hamstring) has been placed on IR, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Bond had practiced fully for the past two weeks, but was ultimately ruled out of the team's first two games. It's unclear what the specifics of his injury are, but it's unlikely he plays at all this season. Josh Keyes was re-signed to fill Bond's spot.

Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Inactive for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bond (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup with Arizona.

Bond's inactive status is a little surprising given that he practiced the full week leading up to Sunday. The Buccaneers' decision to keep him sidelined is likely a precautionary one. Tampa Bay has a particularly deep linebacking corps, which could have also factored into the team's decision to hold out Bond on Sunday. Josh Keyes is listed behind Bond on the team's official team depth chart.

Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Questionable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bond (hamstring) is questionable for the Buccaneers' Week 2 tilt against the Cardinals.

Bond was a full participant throughout the week, and thus it would come as a surprise if he's ultimately held out of Sunday's action.
