    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Placed on injured reserve

    Jackson was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. With the move, Jackson will turn in a pair of three-game absences as a result of knee injuries, which will end his streak of 1,000-yards seasons at four. Despite appearing in 10 contests, he amassed 33 catches (on 63 targets) for 543 yards and three touchdowns. The soon-to-be 33-year-old has one year remaining on his current contract, but after posting 16.5 YPC and achieving first downs on nearly 85 percent of his receptions, he has yet to show his age.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Ruled out for Week 16

    Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game agains the Bears. Though it has been over a week since Jackson sat out the Buccaneers' loss to the Rams, he is still not ready to return to the field. Expect Mike Evans to be plenty active again in Week 16 with Jackson still sidelined.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Misses practice Thursday

    Jackson (knee) missed practice for the second consecutive day this week Thursday, Joe Kania of the Buccaneers official site reports. The veteran receiver continues to be sidelined almost two full weeks after he suffered a sprained MCL versus the Saints in Week 14. With no postseason berth on the line for the Bucs, there is zero incentive for the 11-year veteran to risk further damage in what has already been a difficult season injury-wise. Rookies Donteaa Dye and Adam Humphries would figure to continue to receive the benefit of extended opportunity should Jackson fail to take the field in Week 16 versus the Bears.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Jackson (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports. Just four days after suffering a sprained MCL in Week 14, Jackson sat out last Thursday night at St. Louis. With absences extending into this week and a postseason berth out of the question, the Buccaneers may be reaching the point of no return with the veteran wideout. However, he has one year remaining on his current contract, meaning head coach Lovie Smith may want Jameis Winston and Jackson to continue building chemistry for the 2016 season.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Ruled out for Thursday

    Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game at St. Louis, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Adding insult to the Buccaneers' loss Sunday to the Saints, Jackson was diagnosed with a sprained MCL in the aftermath of the game. Thursday's absence is likely the first of a few, but if the Buccaneers fall out of the playoff race, he may not suit up again this season. For the time being, Jameis Winston will have wideouts Mike Evans, Adam Humphries, Donteea Dye, and Russell Shepard at his disposal.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Not expected to play

    Jackson (sprained MCL) didn't practice Tuesday and isn't expected to play in Thursday's game against the Rams, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Given the diagnosis of a sprained MCL, the real question is whether Jackson might be back for Week 16 or 17. In his absence, Donteea Dye and Adam Humphries will take on expanded roles against the Rams, with Russell Shepard potentially also in the mix. Mike Evans figures to get some of the targets that would normally go to Jackson, and there's also some chance TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins will finally be ready to assume his full role.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Diagnosed with MCL sprain

    Jackson has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Jackson has been contending with a knee injury since late October, which forced three absences from Weeks 8 through 10, but three subsequent outings had been fruitful (11 catches for 219 yards and one touchdown on 21 targets). However, he managed just one reception before departing Sunday with the current concern. In the aftermath of the game, the injury wasn't believed to be serious, but Rapoport suggests that Jackson is in line to sit out "several" weeks. The Buccaneers likely need to win their final three outings in order to earn a playoff berth, which seems to be the only scenario under which he'll make another appearance this season.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Dealing with knee issue

    Jackson's knee issue is not thought to be a long-term injury, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. That said, with the Bucs on a short week, Jackson's status for Thursday's game against the Rams is unclear at this stage, per the Tampa Tribune.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Doubtful to return

    Jackson is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Saints due to a knee injury. Jackson has suffered through a knee injury for much of the season, even missing three contests along the way, but a doubtful return indicates that he's dealing with a serious concern. With the veteran perhaps out for some time, Jameis Winston will instead rely upon Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, to name a couple, to power the Buccaneers' passing attack.

    Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Active Sunday, as expected

    Jackson (knee) is active Sunday against the Saints. Jackson has now played 53 or more snaps in three straight weeks, and after logging full practices both Thursday and Friday, he should be near full capacity for Sunday's matchup. Look for the Buccaneers passing attack to be active Week 14, as they'll be taking on a Saints defense that checks in at No. 31 in the league, allowing 287.3 yards per game through the air.
