The Buccaneers are taking control of the ballgame as their are up 24-10 against the Miami Dolphins at halftime. But a defense which is already hurting due to injuries in the secondary, may have yet another injury to add to the list on defense.
As the game was approaching halftime, linebacker Lavonte David had his legs caught up underneath defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh. David stayed on the ground and looked to be in pain, but walked off the field without the trainers, but noticeably favoring his right leg.
Lavonte David walks off the field under his own power, but it goes without saying that it's a humongous loss if he's out for any amount of time.— Bailey Adams (@BaileyJAdams22) October 10, 2021
The trainers appeared to be looking at his right knee before he walked off the field. But despite walking off on his own, the Bucs have said his return is questionable for the remainder of the game.
This reported by Bucs Nation’s Bailey Adams from Raymond James Stadium.
Lavonte David (knee) is questionable to return. #Bucs lead 24-10 at halftime and they'll get the ball to start the third.— Bailey Adams (@BaileyJAdams22) October 10, 2021
We may know more as the game progresses. But with a 24-10 lead, we shouldn’t expect David getting back on the field of play.
