With Vernon Hargreaves III placed on injured reserve and questions still surrounding Brent Grimes’ availability, the Bucs’ secondary is a huge question mark. Then Jason Pierre-Paul was sporting a knee brace today and said he was unsure of his own status. The defense may be in big trouble Sunday.
Add to that DeSean Jackson still being in the concussion protocol and having his status in doubt, the offense could potentially lose a mega weapon. DJax was a key element in the win over New Orleans and losing him against his former team - who he has tortured since his departure - would be a crushing blow.
Bucs' DeSean Jackson has had good success against Eagles. He's 4-1 vs. his old team, with three 100-yard receiving games. Had an 80-yard TD in 2016, 81-yard TD in 2014.— Greg Auman (@gregauman) September 11, 2018
The Bucs better hope some of these guys who didn’t participate in practice Wednesday can get themselves ready for the game on Sunday. Otherwise, the Bucs will be missing some key players at positions of need in a big time match-up against the defending champs.
