The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made it official Thursday by placing both Lavonte David (ILB) and Leonard Fournette (RB) on injured reserve. Both players will miss at least three weeks before they can return.
We've moved ILB Lavonte David and RB Leonard Fournette to injured reserve and placed WR Jaelon Darden and DL Rakeem Nuñez-Roches on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fournette is recovering from a hamstring injury and David is dealing with a foot issue. The Buccaneers recently signed Le’Veon Bell to help with Fournette being out for an extended time. Look for Kevin Minter to fill in for David in his absence.
