The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles got a little healthier today, with several players returning to practice on a limited basis. For the Bucs, Vincent Jackson practiced for the first time in five weeks. The wide receiver likely won't be ready to play on Sunday, as he's recovering from a knee injury, but it's a good sign that he'll be back sooner rather than later.

As for the Eagles, linebacker Connor Barwin and left tackle Jason Peters both practiced, and both should be ready to play on Sunday. Sam Bradford and Ryan Mathews were once again out and are almost certain to miss the game.

The Bucs did not have George Johnson, who will miss Sunday's game, and Ali Marpet, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Evan Smith and Jacquies Smith continue to be limited, casting doubt on their participation as well. Seferian-Jenkins' participation is clouded in mystery, though Marpet, Smith and Smith are more likely to play.
