LB Deone Bucannon to Be Out Till September After Ankle Surgery

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that linebacker Deone Bucannon will be out until September after having surgery to repair a lingering ankle injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Bucannon initially suffered an ankle injury in November and re-injured it in Week 14 in a loss at Miami. He then went on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Arians said in December that the Cardinals were contemplating surgery as a precautionary procedure that would tighten the ligaments.

Arians is hopeful Bucannon could return by September. If the rehab goes “perfect,” Arians said the fourth-year linebacker could be back by Week 1 in Detroit.

“There’s always that chance that it won’t,” Arians said.
