Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Set for first absence of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

It was always likely that David would miss some game action after he was diagnosed with an MCL sprain coming out of the Buccaneers' Week 10 loss to the Redskins. Such injuries often carry multi-week recovery timetables, so David isn't a safe bet to be ready to play Week 12 against the 49ers, either. At the very least, David will need to increase his involvement in practice next week to have a shot at playing, as he was unable to take the field in any capacity from Wednesday through Friday. With David out Sunday, Kevin Minter and Riley Bullough will likely handle larger roles within the Bucs' injury-battered linebacking corps.

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Skips practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

An MRI revealed Monday that David is dealing with an MCL sprain in his right knee. The risk with an injury like that is that a player can miss multiple weeks because of it. It comes as little surprise, then, that David missed practice Wednesday. David's status throughout the week should paint a better picture of his Week 11 designation.

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: In danger of missing Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David's availability for Sunday's road game versus the Giants is in peril due to a sprained MCL in his right knee, Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

David is the Buccaneers' leading tackler with 71 through nine games. His defensive snap share of 98.6 percent would be difficult to account for due to the banged-up nature of the linebacker corps. At the moment, Kwon Alexander and Jack Cichy reside on IR with ACL tears while Kendell Beckwith (ankle) remains on the Non-Football Injury list. In the end, the Bucs may utilize a majority two-linebacker scheme composed of Adarius Taylor and Devante Bond if David is absent this weekend.

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Records eight tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David logged eight tackles (six solo) and half a sack during Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Panthers.

David was one of the few bright spots in Tampa Bay's defense, which was largely unable to contain the Panthers' offensive attack Week 9. The starting linebacker has logged eight tackles in each of the Buccaneers' last three games, and has been a reliable IDP asset all season. David will look to record another solid performance against Washington in Week 10.

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Eight stops in Week 8 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David tallied eight tackles (three solo), including two for loss, in the Buccaneers' 37-34 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

David was highly active in the Buccaneers' first game without the services of Kwon Alexander (knee-ACL). The veteran should continue to pile up tackle numbers while spearheading the linebacker corps, and he's now on pace for 128 stops on the campaign, which would qualify as his highest figure since 2015.
