Deone Bucannon out for Week 1, maybe more

Fantasy Impact:

In a tough break during warmups in his first practice back from being activated off the PUP list, Bucannon sprained the same ankle he had surgically repaired during the off-season. It is a little worrisome that he still hasn't tested it fully and may be eased back into playing even after he is cleared to avoid another setback. Especially now that rookie Haason Reddick has shown he is capable of filling in for him. If Reddick plays well and Bucannon takes a while to get back to fully healthy he could be in danger of losing a starting spot. This is definitely a situation worth monitoring for IDP owners.
