It appears as though both MLB Lavonte David and DT Vita Vea could be back and practicing by Tuesday. When asked about both players, Bruce Arians had this to say: “Lavonte is fine, he’ll be practicing Tuesday. ”
On Vea’s Return: “Yeah, he’s been progressing nicely. I’ll know more Tuesday, and he’ll be here all week working out. It’ll be close, but I think he’ll be there.”
If both players are healthy by opening day, this would be a huge boost to the Bucs defense. David is the leader of this new defense, and Vea is a huge upgrade over DT Beau Allen. With this defense healthy, the 49ers offense and Jimmy Garapalo should be very concerned.
