Vincent Jackson and Sean Lee will miss Sunday's game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys. Jackson continues to be sidelined with a long-term knee injury, missing the third game in a row, while Lee has yet to recover from a concussion.

The Bucs will also miss guard Ali Marpet, likely to be replaced by Evan Smith, and defensive end Jacquies Smith. Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is once again questionable, with limited participation in practice throughout the week. He's been practicing for nearly a month without being allowed to suit up so it's unclear whether he'll be able to go on Sunday. We would expect so, though, given that he was a game-time decision last week.

In better news, the Bucs should get Alterraun Verner back despite a foot injury, Bradley McDougald is listed as questionable having participated in practice after passing concussion tests and Gerald McCoy is listed as probable, having participated fully in practice for the first time in weeks.

As for the Cowboys, Dez Bryant should play and is listed as probable, as is Brandon Carr. They'll be without Brice Butler, while Nick Hayden, Anthony Hitchens and Rolando McClain are listed as questionable. The latter missed Friday's practice despite participating fully in Wednesday's.
