12/18/17LBLavonte DavidHAMSTRINGOUTThe Buccaneers have listed David (hamstring) as out for Monday's matchup against the Falcons, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

David racked up 13 tackles (12 solo) in last week's 21-24 loss to the Lions, but also acquired a hamstring injury during the contest. He was unable to participate in practice throughout the week, rendering this decision relatively unsurprising. The 27-year-old linebacker's absence will mark his first since Week 5. Riley Bullough and Devante Bond figure to see expanded roles as a result.

12/18/17DTGerald McCoyBICEPSOUTMcCoy (biceps) will not play in Monday's game against the Falcons, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

McCoy injured his biceps on the first play of last week's 21-24 loss to the Lions. The Pro Bowl defensive tackle subsequently underwent an MRI, and while the results are unknown, it was determined he would avoid surgery. The team remains optimistic the 29-year-old can still return this season, but it will not be for the Week 15 contest.

12/18/17DTClinton McDonaldBACKQUESTIONABLEMcDonald (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Lions, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

McDonald will now miss his second consecutive game after suffering a back injury in Week 12 against the Falcons. He's logged just 18 tackles in 11 games this season, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the Buccaneers' defensive front as long as Gerald McCoy and Chris Baker remain healthy.

12/18/17CBJosh RobinsonHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEThe Buccaneers have listed Robinson (hamstring) as questionable for Monday's game against the Falcons.

Robinson logged a full workload Saturday, following consecutive limited days. He will presumably resume his role as a depth safety if he's ultimately able to play Monday. However, final confirmation on his status will not be made until closer to game time.

12/16/17DBVernon HargreavesHamstringOUTHargreaves (hamstring) will not return for Monday's tilt against the Falcons, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Hargreaves will miss his fifth consecutive game as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury. As a result, Robert McClain and Javien Elliott figure to continue seeing heavier workloads providing depth at cornerback.
