  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Still working through injury

    David (groin) didn't participate during Wednesday's walk-through practice.

    David was unable to play in Week 12 against the Colts and appears to be in danger of missing Tampa Bay's Week 13 tilt with the Panthers. The veteran linebacker could conceivably suit up for the matchup without practicing, but ideally, he'll get back on the field Thursday or Friday in some capacity.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Won't play Week 12

    David (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    David hasn't practiced since he suffered a groin strain Week 12, so it's no surprise to see him ruled out versus Indianapolis. In his stead, K.J. Britt and SirVocea Dennis will be candidates to handle increased snaps, especially if Devin White (foot) also ends up on the sidelines.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Looking unlikely for Week 12

    David (groin) is considered a long shot to suit up for Sunday's game against the Colts, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    David didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury, reportedly a strain, he suffered Week 11. The standout linebacker will have two more opportunities to increase the level of his practice activity, but at this point, it looks like he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's road matchup at Indianapolis.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Misses practice Wednesday

    David (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Sacks quarterback Sunday

    David, who is believed to have suffered a strained groin in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, recorded seven tackles (seven solo) including a sack in Sunday's 27-14 loss at San Francisco.

    David totaled at least seven tackles for the seventh time in 10 games this season in Week 11, and he added his third sack of the year to boot. Incredibly, he's on pace for a career season in the tackle department heading into a Week 12 matchup at Indianapolis, making him a fantastic IDP option if the injury doesn't prove serious.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Headed for MRI

    David, who is believed to have suffered a strained groin in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, will undergo an MRI on Monday, Jenna Laine of reports.

    David's status for the week ahead is up in the air, but the MRI should provide some clarity on his injury and a potential timeline for his return. If the Nebraska product is unable to suit up in Week 12 against the Colts, SirVocea Dennis will be a candidate to see extra work once again.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Won't return Sunday

    David has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the 49ers due to a groin injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    David was productive before leaving Sunday's game, as he racked up seven solo tackles, including a sack and three tackles for a loss. He'll be unavailable for the final quarter, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to suit up for next Sunday's game against the Colts. SirVocea Dennis has replaced David at linebacker against San Francisco.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Reaches double-digit tackles again

    David registered 11 tackles (nine solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 39-37 loss to the Texans.

    David made his presence felt immediately when he forced the ball from tight end Dalton Schultz, leading to a recovery by Antoine Winfield that set the Buccaneers up in Texans territory. It was the fourth game in a row that David has registered double-digit tackles and the seventh straight time he has played every single defensive snap. He'll look to help the Bucs snap their four-game losing streak when they return home in Week 10 to face the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Records 14 tackles in loss

    David had 14 tackles (six solo) in Thursday's 24-18 loss to the Bills.

    David once again led the team in tackles, and Thursday's performance was the third straight game in which he has registered double-digit tackles. He's far and away the leading tackler on the team with 67 total tackles and also leads the team with seven tackles for a loss. David will look to build on his performance in Week 9 on the road against the Texans.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Racks up tackles again in loss

    David recorded 13 tackles (eight solo), including one for loss, and also defensed a pass in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Falcons.

    David recorded double-digit tackles for the second straight game while tying his season high in stops. The veteran linebacker is seemingly as effective as ever in his 12th season, with his 53 stops through six games putting him on pace to narrowly eclipse the career-high 147 tackles he compiled over 16 contests in 2015. David should have plenty of opportunities again in Thursday's Week 8 road matchup against the Bills while trying to slow down Buffalo's arsenal of offensive weapons.
