Bucannon had ankle surgery in May. The team hopes he will be ready for Week 1, but he is questionable for the open of the season and could land on the reserve/PUP list, sidelining him for at least the first six games of the season.

Summary

In 2015 Bucannon lit up the box scores with 90 solo tackles, 3 sacks, 3 takeaways, 3 forced fumbles and a defensive score. In 2016 he was well off that pace, especially in the big play columns, even before an ankle injury sidelined him for the final three games. Buccanon had surgery on the ankle over the offseason and his recovery currently leaves his week one status in question. There is even some thought of Bucannon possibly opening the season on the PUP. Slumping numbers along with the injury situation and the team's addition of inside linebacker Haason Reddick with their first round pick, are all signs that fantasy owners need to be careful when considering where to slot Bucannon. In the long term we will likely see him paired with Reddick as the starters. (June 29)
