Buccaneers' Lavonte David diagnosed with high-ankle sprain

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David has been officially diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Per NFL.com, David is expected to miss "a month or more." He was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. It's a significant loss for a Tampa Bay defense that was already missing three starters in Week 3.

David racked up 7 tackles (4 solo) before exiting with the injury, giving him 16 total (12 solo) this season.
