Jackson secured four of 10 targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 25-12 loss to the Colts. Jackson snagged four balls for the second straight week but was targeted a robust 10 times, the same amount as fellow starting wideout Mike Evans. Despite being able to convert less than half of those looks into receptions, the 76 yards his four catches netted represent his second-highest total in that category on the season. Jackson looks to be fully recovered from the knee injury that previously caused him to miss three games. Jackson could potentially see an uptick in opportunity in the Week 13 home tilt versus the Falcons if Atlanta corner Marcus Trufant primarily shadows Evans.
Jackson was in on 61 snaps in the Week 11 victory over the Eagles, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Bucs wasted no time getting Jackson heavily involved in his return from a knee injury. The veteran receiver looked receptive and prepared for the workload thrust upon him, tallying his second-highest reception, yardage, and target totals on the year. Jackson appeared to emerge from the game no worse for wear, and should therefore receive another full complement of playing time in Week 12 versus the Colts.
Jackson secured four of six targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 45-17 victory over the Eagles. Jackson made a successful return after a three-game absence due to a knee injury, securing his third touchdown catch of the season and notching his highest reception total since Week 4 versus the Panthers. The veteran receiver's presence seemed to considerably open things up for rookie quarterback Jameis Winston, who tied a rookie record with five touchdown passes on the day. Jackson may see a spike in targets in Week 12 if the Colts opt to shadow Mike Evans with Vontae Davis.
Jackson (knee) is listed as active Sunday at Philadelphia, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Jackson's ability to practice Thursday and Friday set the foundation for his return, bringing the Buccaneers one step closer to boasting an intact offense. With Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) still not medically cleared, Jackson will give Jameis Winston another proven receiving option next to Mike Evans in an otherwise uninspiring corps.
Jackson (knee) is expected to play Sunday at Philadelphia, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Buccaneers have thus audibled from their presumed mid-week position that Jackson would miss a fourth consecutive contest. Ultimately, his snap count will be contingent upon the health of his knee, which afforded limited practices Thursday and Friday, but plenty of targets should be available due to the Buccaneers' decimated receiving corps outside of Mike Evans.
