Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson: Placed on IR

Jackson was injured reserve due to a torn ACL, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Jackson apparently played through a knee injury during the Buccaneers' Week 5 win at Carolina, only to realize that something was awry after the game. The team may have been aware of the diagnosis during its bye week, but with practice imminent Wednesday, the veteran wideout will miss the rest of the season due to an ACL tear in his left knee, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Expect Adam Humphries and Cameron Brate to take on a larger role in the offense, though a free-agent signing or maybe even a trade could very well occur in the near future.
