Lavonte David, Antoine Winfield Have Lisfranc Sprains

December 22nd, 2021

Lavonte David will not require surgery.

That was the good news from Bucco Bruce Arians tonight on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Joe reported yesterday that David will miss the rest of the regular season and Week 1 of the playoffs because of his bad foot, injured late Sunday against the Saints. But Joe was told four weeks is optimistic.

Arians explained to a national audience that David has a “Lisfranc sprain” that will be treated with rest and rehab rather than surgery. He also added that Antoine Winfield, Jr., has the same injury.

The word “Lisfranc” is never what you want to hear when it comes to an athlete. Recovery is tricky and you can read more details here.

Joe has no idea what David might be able to take/inject to get himself on the field for the playoffs, but Joe’s willing to wager David will do whatever it takes if doctors allow it.

    Not sure which is the heavier loss. Winfield or LVD. Both are key players that we will need to go deep in the playoffs. Considering how this late season has gone, I’m happy LVD got his much deserved ring when he did. He may never get another chance.

    Another bizarre season with all the injuries and key players missing time because of covid right at the thick of some playoff implication games, possibly to have an effect on the playoffs.

    Liz Franc is a crack whore.

  4. Wesley Says:

    Joe is literally the only person saying that David will miss first game of playoffs.

    If they can repeat its gotta be one of the greatest ever in any sport. The way this team has won as many games as they have is impressive. The bad thing though, if they don’t repeat how much of this team decides to stay and how many do the Bucs kick down the road. It’s amazing how much the extra playoff and super bowl games take a toll on their bodies. I’m starting to understand why no one wanted to play the extra game this year. That window is gonna shut fast on the Bucs unless they start pulling a belicheat and getting rid people a little early and drafting better.

    Liz Frank injuries mean they’ll never be the same again. This ailment lingers forever. Smh we’re screwed into next season now too

  7. Wild Bill Says:

    Too many injuries to key players. Lady luck turned her back on the Bucs this year. They should still make the playoffs with their defense but then injuries on offense will probably kill their SB chances. How weird how luck can change so dramatically. Feeling really sad for the guys who have been injured and for the rest of the team as well. They totally deserved better.

    Liz Franc gave me a case of herpes.

  9. Cleanhouse Says:

    I think the training staff and sports scientists for this team suck- every year it’s hamstrings- a training issue- what now? Bad equipment management? Wrong cleats? 2 with same issue?

  10. Baba Yaga Says:


    Saints = bad case of the Liz Franc

  11. PassingThru Says:

    Oh good, for a moment there I thought the Bucs would recover quickly.

  12. Swampbuc Says:

    These conditions produce Francres.

  13. Beej Says:

    All the injuries we didn’t get LAST year, we’re getting THIS year

  14. SOEbuc Says:

    What’s Wienfild time limit???

  15. Sparky Says:

    So Winfield and LVD have the same injury but Winfield may only miss one game and LVD will miss 4?

  16. Pruritus Ani Says:

    Terrible.. horrible luck this year.. What are the odds of two players on the same team, on the same side of the ball, getting the same obscure injury, at the same time? Weird s..t like this only happens to the Bucs

  17. Listnfrmafar Says:

    What causes Liz Franc?

  18. JimBuc2 Says:

    Liz Franc handed her earnings to her pimp. “All quarters. Really?!” “Yeah”, she replied. “That’s what each one paid”
    Go Bucs!

  19. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team picked the wrong time to have the injuries that’s for sure.

  20. Swampbuc Says:

    Liz Franc has the rrhea.

  21. unbelievable Says:


    These guys might never be the same again. What a shame. Especially for a guy like Winfield who is still so young and promising.

    Ugh, this season is really taking a downward spiral as of late.

    Chop the foot off, add a wheel, and let’s go!
