  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Team-leading tackle tally

    David recorded 11 tackles (seven solo), including one for loss and recovered a fumble during the Buccaneers' 30-27 divisional-round loss to the Rams on Sunday.

    David's tackle total paced the Buccaneers on the afternoon, and his recovery of a Cam Akers fumble at the Rams' 30-yard line helped set up Tampa Bay's eventual game-tying touchdown. David's season-ending performance capped off a solid campaign in which the veteran linebacker navigated five absences due to ankle and foot injuries to still post 97 tackles (63 solo), two sacks, three defensed passes, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery across 12 regular-season contests.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Good to go for divisional round

    David (foot) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    David returned from a three-game absence due to the foot injury to play in Tampa Bay's wild-card win over the Eagles. His limited participation at practice throughout the week was likely just precautionary, as the star linebacker is expected to be full go Sunday. The last time these two teams met (Week 3), David played all 63 defensive snaps and recorded six solo tackles.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Limited again Thursday

    David (foot) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Jenna Laine of reports.

    The linebacker has opened the week with consecutive limited efforts at practice. David's ability to participate both days bodes well for his chances to play in Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Rams, though his status at Friday's practice will provide a clearer indication of his availability.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Dressing for playoff opener

    David (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

    Though the Buccaneers activated David from injured reserve Saturday following a three-game absence, the team still designated him as questionable heading into the playoff opener. The designation was likely just a precaution in case David suffered a setback with his foot in pregame warmups, but his active status implies that didn't materialize. Expect David to step back into his usual starting role at inside linebacker, giving the Buccaneers a sure tackler in the middle as the team looks to slow down a potent Eagles rushing attack.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Listed questionable for Sunday

    David (foot) is questionable for Sunday against the Eagles, Jenna Laine of reports.

    David was activated from IR on Saturday and it was expected he was going to be playing Sunday, and although he may still do so, it isn't a sure thing. The return of David would be a big boost to the Buccaneers' linebacker unit, as he is one of the leaders of their defense. If he can't suit up though, Kevin Minter would likely continue to start in his place.

  • Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Activated from injured reserve

    The Buccaneers activated David (foot) from injured reserve Saturday, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    David missed the final three games of the regular season due to a foot injury, but he'll be available for Sunday's wild-card matchup after returning to practice this week. Across his six appearances prior to his absence, the 31-year-old racked up 55 tackles (35 solo), a sack, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a pass defense.
