The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have Vincent Jackson on the field today, when they take on the Buffalo Bills at Raymond James Stadium. Jackson had been battling a hamstring injury and missed most of this week's practices, but he's apparently good to go -- although whether he'll be as effective as he usually is remains to be seen. Chris Owusu was similarly limited with a hamstring injury this week, but he too will suit up, giving the Bucs a little more (and quite necessary) wide receiver depth.
Fullback Lonnie Pryor continues to be inactive, which is a bit of a surprise given the lack of versatile blockers and pass catcher on the Bucs' roster right now. Dekoda Watson will step in as starter at strongside linebacker now that Jonathan Casillas has been placed on injured reserve.
The Bills have no significant injuries and no surprise inactives.
Buccaneers inactives: CB Deveron Carr, FB Lonnie Pryor, S Bradley McDougald, LB Danny Lansanah, G Patrick Omameh, G Carl Nicks and DT Gary Gibson.
Bills inactives: QB Jeff Tuel, FB Frank Summers, DB Brandon Smith, OL Mark Asper, OL Antoine McClain, TE Tony Moeaki, LB Jamaal Westerman
