The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will almost certainly have to miss Vincent Jackson this week, as the wide receiver did not participate today and was absent at practice yesterday as well. Jackson is suffering from an MCL injury and may not play again this year.

Logan Mankins was also absent with a knee injury, which has been bothering him for a few weeks but hasn't stopped him from playing. Akeem Spence continues to miss practice with an ankle injury and likely won't play on Sunday, and defensive end Kourtnei Brown was out with a groin injury as well. In better news, defensive linemen Gerald McCoy and George Johnson were able to participate and should be good to go for Sunday.

As for the Bears, they were missing wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and linebcaker Shea McClellin with a hamstring injury and a concussion, respectively. A few other players were limited, but there's no reason to believe they won't suit up on Sunday.
