Daily Bucs Links 10/13/11 - Tanard Jackson looks good at practice, Mike Williams wants to play better

Let's hope so. The Bucs need him. 

Tanard Jackson rejoins Bucs, has impressive practice | & St. Petersburg Times
It really sounds like the Bucs want him to play soon.

If he plays, there's a good chance he's going to look bad. 

Bucs have 'very high' trust in reinstated Tanard Jackson - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
I don't. He got busted three times. Was suspended twice. I would think he'd have to do more than go to rehab and be reinstated to earn trust. 

With Stocker out, Bucs working through issues at tight end | & St. Petersburg Times
Tight end really is a problem now, but it has been an issue for years. The Bucs haven't had a good blocking tight end who can also do some damage in the passing game in a very long time. 

Bucs' Jackson could learn from Garcia's college finish |
Let's hope he learns from it and doesn't emulate it. 

Graham will take over tailback spot for injured Blount vs. Saints | & St. Petersburg Times
An undersized, slow, 31-year old running back takes over. What could go wrong?

Stand up and shout!

I doubt it, but that would suck. 

Bucs LB Cutrera has plenty to learn with new team |
He's a special teamer. A useful player certainly, but he's not about to make a big impact. 

Bucs injury update: McCoy, Blount, Stocker absent from practice | & St. Petersburg Times
At least the Bucs haven't lost them for the year. Yet. 

Bucs DE Bowers comfortable at tackle, too |
Bowers is just now developing at defensive end, and they're moving to tackle. I would hope they stick to passing downs only, but it doesn't sound like it. 

Bowers Embraces Inside Job |
Of course he does. What else is he going to do?
