Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David has a medial left ankle sprain and will be week-to-week, a source told ESPN on Monday.
David was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter of the Bucs’ 34-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. X-rays were negative for fractures and the initial diagnosis was a more serious high ankle sprain. However, an MRI and further testing revealed it to be a medial sprain.
David, 27, was a first-team All-Pro in 2013 and played in the Pro Bowl after the 2015 season.
The Buccaneers (1-1) will host the New York Giants on Sunday, Oct. 1.
Josh Norman, Washington Redskins cornerback: “It’s not about the flag. We want to be here. This is our country. We were born here. We were bred here. No one is spitting on the flag. We know you gave your life for it. Our gratitude to your service is deeply endeared. But if someone comes on your front porch and take a piss, as a man what are you going to do, sit there and watch him pee or step outside and be like, ‘Hey what are you doing, sir? You’re on private property you got to get off or we’ll make you get off.’ … When a president acts like that, that’s not someone who stands for dignity, pride, respect, honor. Where’s the honor.
Terrell Suggs, Baltimore Ravens linebacker: “Personally, I think the comments made about my brothers decided to protest and kneel is kind of what made us no longer be silent. We stand with our brothers. They have the right to protest. We knelt with them today. Non-violent protest is as American as it gets. We knelt with them today and let them know we are a unified front. There is no dividing us. I guess we’re all ‘sons of bitches.'” Suggs was one of 10 Ravens players to kneel during the anthem.
