    Bond has been suspended for four games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Cleared to play

    Bond (hamstring) is not listed on the Bucs' injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Rams.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Ruled out for Week 3

    Bond (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Bond was unable to participate in practice all week, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. His absence is a blow to Tampa Bay's depth at the linebacker position.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Held out of practice

    Bond did not participate in Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The nature of Bond's injury is unclear at this time, but it was enough to keep him out of practice early in the week. The depth option at linebacker should be considered day-to-day.

    Bond (undisclosed) is absent from the Bucs' injury report ahead of their season opener versus the 49ers.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Dealing with injury

    Bond (undisclosed) was unable to participate in Sunday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    It's unclear how Bond suffered the injury, but it's serious enough to force him out of practice. Expect the team to update his status ahead of its final preseason game against the Cowboys on Thursday. With Bond sidelined, Emmanuel Smith and Beau Allen could see an increase in reps.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Re-ups with Tampa

    Bond signed a one-year contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Bond has appeared in 25 career games and accrued 36 tackles (28 solo) for the Buccaneers since being drafted in the sixth round in 2016. The 25-year-old has been fairly involved on special teams but has also made six starts due to Tampa Bay's injury issues at inside linebacker.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Questionable for season finale

    Bond (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Bond is managing his recovery from an undisclosed illness, putting his status for Tampa Bay's season finale in question. If the third-year pro were to sit out versus the Falcons, Adarius Taylor and Cameron Lynch would benefit from increased snaps.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Solid as SAM linebacker

    Bond tallied five tackles (all solo) and was credited with one quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 27-9 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

    Bond may be starting to grow into the starting strong-side linebacker role now that he's had a chance to fill the spot for three games, as Sunday's tackle tally was a season high. The third-year pro was an important part of the Bucs' best defensive effort of the season, and he'll look to continue rising to IDP relevance against a run-centric Panthers offense in Week 13.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Ascends to starting role

    Bond will serve as the Buccaneers' starting strong-side linebacker Sunday against the Bengals, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    Bond will step into an elevated role after Kwon Alexander (knee) was placed on injured reserve earlier this week. Adarius Taylor will shift over to fill Alexander's old spot at middle linebacker, which may result in Bond seeing most of his duties on early downs while the Buccaneers opt for an extra defensive back in obvious passing situations. Bond's uptick in opportunity nonetheless puts him closer to warranting consideration in deep IDP leagues.

  • Buccaneers' Devante Bond: Could step into starting role

    Bond is expected to take over starting outside linebacking duties with Kwon Alexander (torn ACL) out for the year, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The Buccaneers were dealt a poor hand following Sunday's outcome when news broke that both Alexander and rookie linebacker Jack Cichy tore their respective ACLs. Tampa Bay may be in the market for a linebacker, but as of now it seems as though the team is comfortable with Bond stepping in to fill the season-long void. Bond, 25, appeared in 14 games for the Bucs last season and registered 14 tackles over that span.
