Vincent Jackson caught 4-of-6 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 11 win over the Eagles.
Jackson's six targets ranked second to Mike Evans' seven in a game where the Bucs were able to stay in control with their rushing attack, piling up 42 attempts on the ground compared to 29 passes. Particularly if Vontae Davis (hamstring) can't play, V-Jax will be a solid WR3 option when the Bucs visit the Colts in Week 12. Nov 22 - 4:37 PM

Vincent Jackson is officially active for Week 11 against the Eagles.

He should be in line for 6-8 targets in what projects as an up-tempo game, immediately putting V-Jax back on the WR3 map as a fantasy play. The Bucs' Week 11 inactives are TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, WR Donteea Dye, QB Ryan Griffin, S Kimario McFadden, OG Ali Marpet, DE Jason Shirley, and DE George Johnson.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Vincent Jackson (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Eagles.

Jackson returned to practice on Thursday and looked to be in good health. He even got some extra work in with Jameis Winston after Friday's session. Jackson has averaged a modest 53.2 receiving yards per game this year but he has a good enough track record to warrant immediate WR3 status. While Jackson's return will mean fewer targets for Mike Evans, his presence should give Evans more room to operate.

Vincent Jackson (knee) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Eagles.

Jackson has practiced the last two days and seems to be making good progress. He even stayed late after Friday's session to get some extra work in with Jameis Winston. We wouldn't get our hopes up knowing how cautious coach Lovie Smith can be with injuries. Mike Evans has averaged 13.7 targets during Jackson's three-game absence. That number will be much smaller when Jackson returns.

Vincent Jackson (knee) practiced again on Friday.

Jackson returned to practice Thursday as a limited participant. Knowing how cautious the Bucs are with injuries, Jackson probably won't play this week though he'll have a good chance to return next week against Indianapolis.

Vincent Jackson (knee) returned to practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

He was cutting and running routes. It will be interesting to see how Jackson is listed on Friday's injury report. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week Jackson was expected to miss his fourth game in a row Sunday against Philadelphia. Considering how conservative the Bucs have been with Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder), that sounds about right. Jackson probably has a better chance to return next week against the Colts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Vincent Jackson (knee) is expected to miss Week 11 against the Eagles.

Jackson has been sidelined since hurting his knee Week 7. He didn't practice Wednesday. Mike Evans will continue to soak up targets in Jackson's absence. It'd be nice if Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) would be cleared to play.
Nov 18 - 2:16 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Cowboys.

As was DE Jacquies Smith and G Ali Marpet. This will be Jackson's third missed game in a row. Mike Evans has 28 targets total the last two games.
Nov 13 - 1:29 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He's experienced improvement this week, catching passes off to the side, but it looks like Jackson is going to need another week. Donteea Dye will get another "start" opposite Mike Evans, but he's proven to be a non-factor.
Nov 13 - 12:17 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Unless his condition improves dramatically before Sunday, Jackson is headed for his third straight absence. Mike Evans saw a whopping 19 targets in last week's loss to the Giants, and will be in for another monster workload against the Cowboys.
Nov 12 - 2:07 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) remains sidelined at Bucs practice Wednesday.

Jackson has progressed to catching balls from the JUGS machine, but that's about all he did on Wednesday. Consider him questionable for Sunday against the Cowboys after missing Tampa's past two games.
Nov 11 - 2:24 PM

Buccaneers declared WR Vincent Jackson, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, QB Ryan Griffin, DE Lawrence Sidbury, DE Jacquies Smith, S D.J. Swearinger and SS Major Wright inactive for Week 9 against the Giants.

Jackson (knee) was ruled out on Friday. He's week to week. William Gholston (knee), Gerald McCoy (shoulder) and Tony McDaniel (groin) are all active.
Nov 8 - 2:51 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) is out for Week 9 against the Giants.

He hasn't played or practiced since suffering a knee injury in Week 7. Donteea Dye will grab another start opposite Mike Evans. Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder, questionable) could occupy a major role in the passing game if he plays this week. For now, consider V-Jax week to week.
Nov 6 - 3:10 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Jackson is unlikely to play for the second-straight week. Donteea Dye will fill in opposite Mike Evans, while Evans gobbles up the receiver targets.
Nov 6 - 12:07 PM

Vincent Jackson (knee) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

He's headed for his second absence in a row. Mike Evans couldn't escape double coverage last week against the Falcons, but his volume will still be high enough to warrant WR1 treatment. Evans would have a little more breathing room if Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) suits up, but it's looking unlikely.
