Bucs activate LB Devin White, DT Steve McLendon
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers activated linebacker Devin White and defensive tackle Steve McLendon from the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced Monday.
Both players, who were placed on the reserve/virus list on New Year’s Day, are expected to be available to play in the Buccaneers’ NFC divisional-round game versus the host New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
They sat out Tampa Bay’s 44-27 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Jan. 3 and the 31-23 win over the Washington Football Team in an NFC wild-card game on Saturday.
White, 22, recorded 140 tackles to go along with nine sacks and a fumble recovery while starting 15 games this season.
McLendon, 35, was acquired the New York Jets in a trade earlier this season. He has collected 31 tackles in 15 games this season, including 17 in nine contests with the Bucs.
