Vincent Jackson Injury: Buccaneers receiver day-to-day with rib injury

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can count on Vincent Jackson against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can breathe a sigh of relief: Vincent Jackson is day-to-day with his rib injury according to Adam Schefter. Jackson left the game against the New England Patriots early in the third quarter and did not return during the loss.

At least that's a positive. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers would have a massive problem without Vincent Jackson. Their offense is predicated on the fact that their receivers can consistently win one-on-one battles, and if Jackson goes down, the only one capable of doing that on offense is Mike Williams. As bad as the offense is now, that would make it much, much worse.

Thankfully, the receiver should be able to play against the Arizona Cardinals. The passing game has been a disaster so far, so perhaps they can finally get on track in their second home game and grab their first win. The likely return of Tom Crabtree should at least help a little, there.
