After a day of differing reports, it appears that Buccaneers OLB Lavonte David's ankle sprain isn't as bad as initially thought. ESPN's Jenna Laine reported Monday that David suffered a medial sprain to his left ankle in the Week 3 loss to Minnesota and is "week-to-week." HC Dirk Koetter backed that up by saying the injury is "not as bad as it looked or as bad as initially reported." David will reportedly wear a walking boot for the next few days and appears likely to miss at least 1 game. We'll keep an eye on his status beyond that.
