Vincent Jackson (ribs) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Vikings.
V-Jax practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and is expected to play against Minnesota. His status will be worth rechecking Sunday morning, however. On the off chance Jackson were unable to suit up for Week 8, the Bucs would turn to Mike Evans and Louis Murphy as their starting wideouts. Oct 24 - 3:03 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) practiced in pads on Thursday.

He remained "limited." Either way, Jackson's health is not a question mark for Week 8. He'll be good to go as a WR2 against the Vikings.
Oct 23 - 2:23 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday.

The Bucs are getting Jackson extended rest coming off their bye. Jackson is fully expected to play in Week 8 against the Vikings.
Oct 22 - 2:07 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) sat out Monday's practice.

It was just an informal session coming off the Bucs' bye week. Jackson is fully expected to suit up against the Vikings.
Oct 20 - 2:31 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Buccaneers are "open" to trading Vincent Jackson.

"They are getting a ton of calls on him," Rapoport said. "With just one win, I'm told they are open to anything even though they love him as a player." Jackson has a $10 million non-guaranteed base salary, and a $9.8 million non-guaranteed base salary in 2015. If the Buccaneers traded away Jackson, they could move forward with Mike Evans as Mike Glennon's No. 1 receiver. V-Jax turns 32 in January. We suspect he could be had for a third-round pick.

Vincent Jackson (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

The Bucs have their bye this week. Jackson is fine.
Oct 15 - 12:40 PM

Vincent Jackson caught just four passes for 66 yards in the Bucs' Week 6 loss to the Ravens.

Jackson was targeted a team-high 13 times, so he continues to dominate looks under Mike Glennon's watch at quarterback. They didn't translate too much, though Jackson did have a 30-yard touchdown catch called back when he couldn't get both feet down in bounds. We still like Jackson as a weekly high-end WR2 as long as Glennon is under center. It's unclear if he or Josh McCown will get the start when the Bucs come out of their Week 7 bye.
Oct 12 - 5:03 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) and Mike Evans (groin) are both active for Week 6 against the Ravens.

As expected. Both will start on the outside with Mike Glennon at quarterback. Inactive for the Bucs are QB Josh McCown, CB Johnthan Banks, FS Dashon Goldson, LB Jonathan Casillas, DE Larry English, OT Kevin Pamphile, and OG Kadeem Edwards.
Oct 12 - 11:45 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports both Vincent Jackson (ribs) and Mike Evans (groin) are expected to play Week 6 vs. the Ravens.

Neither player's status was in serious doubt despite the questionable tags. Jackson will do battle with Ravens top CB Jimmy Smith. We still like him as a high-end WR2. Evans ended up missing just one game with his groin issue.
Oct 12 - 9:19 AM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) is questionable for Week 6.

Jackson returned to a limited practice Friday, putting him on track to play against the Ravens. He should start opposite Mike Evans (questionable, groin), who is expected to return after sitting out last week.
Oct 10 - 5:56 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) returned to practice Friday.

He appears ready to go for Week 6 against the Ravens. Jackson's game has unsurprisingly risen to another level with Mike Glennon at quarterback, but he gets a tough matchup with Baltimore top CB Jimmy Smith. V-Jax is a WR2.
Oct 10 - 12:09 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) remained out of Bucs practice Thursday.

It's a mild concern, but there hasn't been any indication that Jackson is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Ravens. The Bucs are "optimistic" he'll be back for Friday. V-Jax has made a habit of playing through minor nicks and bruises, including this year's "small" wrist fracture. Owners will have to double check his status, but Jackson should be good to go as a WR2 for Week 6.
Oct 9 - 2:21 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) is not practicing Wednesday.

Jackson likely dinged his ribs in last week's loss to the Saints, as he missed his first five snaps of the season. Beat writers haven't expressed much concern, but it's only Wednesday. Jackson routinely gets days off during the season, so it very well could be a maintenance day for the 31-year-old. Check back Thursday.
Oct 8 - 2:05 PM

Vincent Jackson caught eight passes for 144 yards in the Bucs' Week 5 loss to the Saints.

Jackson saw a team-high 12 targets and was Mike Glennon's unquestioned No. 1 option. He now has 15 grabs for 176 yards and one touchdown through two games with Glennon at quarterback, putting Jackson back on the WR2 map. He had several big games with his biggest being a 34-yard grab on a 2nd-and-20. Jackson will have a tougher test against the Ravens' Jimmy Smith next week, but Glennon's big arm has proven to be a boost for Jackson.
Oct 5 - 5:51 PM

Vincent Jackson caught 3-of-10 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in Tampa Bay's Week 4 win over the Steelers.

V-Jax's final grab was his most important, as he whipped CB William Gay for what would prove to be the game-winning score with 0:07 remaining. It was a journey to get to that point, however, as Jackson muffed an easy catch and was the victim of overthrows from Mike Glennon. The good news was that Glennon never stopped looking his No. 1 receiver's way, while Jackson's wrist wasn't an issue. Off to a slow start, Jackson is on pace for just 52/536/8, but all three of those numbers should pick up going forward. Glennon is a big upgrade over Josh McCown under center.
