Bucs' Vincent Jackson: 'I'm happy here in Tampa'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:50 pm ET) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson said Thursday he is flattered by the trade speculation, but he has heard nothing from the front office about being dealt, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Jackson added, "I'm happy here in Tampa."

Jackson isn't a free agent until after the 2016 season. He has 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns through six games in 2014.


Bucs WR Vincent Jackson doesn't practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson did not dress for practice Wednesday, though he did catch a few passes during individual drills, reports the Tampa Tribune. Jackson is nursing a rib injury ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Report: Bucs fielding calls about trading WR Vincent Jackson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Buccaneers are receiving a "ton of calls" about trades regarding veteran wide receiver Vincent Jackson, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. The Bucs like Jackson as a player, but the team is willing to consider everything.

Jackson has totaled 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns through six games. The Bucs are on a bye Week 7.


Buccaneers receiving corps becoming diverse


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) It may have been an aberration resulting from quarterback Matt Glennon throwing for a season-high 314 yards with his team in catchup mode from the outset, but the Buccaneers managed to sustain three wide receivers Week 6 against Baltimore. Vincent Jackson, the star of the group, led the team with 13 targets but was characteristically inefficient with them, catching four passes for 66 yards, and rookie Mike Evans returned from injury to catch four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown.

But the big surprise was Louis Murphy. Expected to shrink into a peripheral role with Evans back in the lineup, he led the way with seven catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. His nine targets were the second-most on the team.

The 1-5 Buccaneers figure to be playing from behind a lot, so Murphy, who clicked with Glennon immediately when he joined the team in Week 4, might just be able to stay relevant in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg doesn't rank him especially high in his Playing the Waiver Wire column this week, but at least he's ranked.

Of course, the presence of Murphy could diminish the value of Jackson and Evans to Fantasy owners. Jackson remains a must-start for now, but Evans is strictly a matchups type until we get some clarity here.


Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson gets a ton of targets Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson received 13 targets Week 6.

Jackson didn't do a ton with that action, hauling in four receptions for 66 yards. Jackson actually had a touchdown called back during the contest. He hooked up with Mike Glennon on a 29 yard score in the third quarter, but it was ruled incomplete after a challenge.

Jackson is on a bye Week 7. 


Buccaneers to have Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Buccaneers will have starting wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans Week 6 against the Ravens.

Both players entered Sunday listed as questionable, but will play. Jackson is dealing with a rib issue, and Evans is fighting off a groin injury. Both players were able to take part in limited practice Friday. 


Report: Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans expected to play Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Buccaneers wide receivers Vincent Jackson (ribs) and Mike Evans (groin) are expected to play Sunday against the Ravens, a source told ESPN. Both players are listed as questionable for Week 6.

Buccaneers list five questionable on Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) A handful of Buccaneers have been deemed questionable for the Week 6 clash against the visiting Ravens.

That quintet is cornerback Johnthan Banks (neck), center Evan Dietrich-Smith (illness), defensive end Larry English (hamstring) and wideouts Vincent Jackson (rib) and Mike Evans (groin). The latter two are expected to play, however.


Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson back to work Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) It comes as no surprise that Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson returned to practice Friday after missing time to a rib injury. His presence keeps him in play for possible participation Sunday against Baltimore.

Jackson is coming off his finest performance of the season at New Orleans with eight catches for 144 yards, which exceeded the yardage total he compiled in the first four games of the season combined.


Bucs WR Vincent Jackson sits out another practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson (rib) missed another day of practice Thursday as the team prepares for Week 6 vs. Baltimore. Jackson is coming off his best game of the season, totaling eight catches for 144 yards in a Week 5 overtime loss at New Orleans.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who was filling in for head coach Lovie Smith Thursday, said he was "optimistic" Jackson could return to practice Friday.


Josh McCown, Vincent Jackson sit out Bucs practice Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown and wide receiver Vincent Jackson both missed practice Wednesday due to injuries, per the team's official website.

Jackson sat out because of an injury to his rib. He's coming off an eight-catch, 144-yard performance against the Saints in Week 5. He has 278 receiving yards and two touchdowns through five games. According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Jackson does not appear in danger of missing any game action come Sunday.

McCown, who is working back from a right thumb injury, still needs to receive clearance to resume throwing. He has missed two straight games and it appears more and more that Mike Glennon will start Week 6 vs. Baltimore.


Vincent Jackson outshines Louis Murphy this time


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) One week after looking like new quarterback Mike Glennon wanted no part of him, the Buccaneers' Vincent Jackson lived up to his No. 1 wide receiver billing for the first time this season Week 5 at New Orleans, leading the team with eight catches for 144 yards.

Granted, his 12 targets were only two more than he had Week 4 at Pittsburgh, but in that game, Glennon seemed more interested in throwing the ball to both Mike Evans and, after the rookie left with a groin strain, Louis Murphy.

Murphy, who started in place of Evans in Week 5, still made an impact in this one, catching a 20-yard touchdown pass at the end of the first half, but he finished with just three catches for 35 yards.

Jackson entered Week 5 tied for the league lead in drops but hopefully earned some trust with this performance. He's back to being a high-end Fantasy option for Week 6 against Baltimore.


Vincent Jackson erupts for 144 receiving yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson entered Sunday's game in New Orleans with 134 receiving yards through four contests. He exploded for 144 yards on eight catches, accounting for more than half of Tampa Bay's receiving yards.

Jackson drew a game-high 12 targets from second-year quarterback Mike Glennon and is averaging 9.4 per game. Jackson will look to keep it going Week 6 at home against Baltimore.


Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson not on Wednesday IR


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) A wrist ailment that has been plaguing Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson apparently did not prevent him from practicing Wednesday. He was not listed on the team's injury report.

Jackson has yet to break loose in any game this season. He is averaging just three catches for 33 yards in four games, though he has scored two touchdowns.


Did Vincent Jackson's wrist limit him in Week 4?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson came away from Sunday's game against the Steelers with 9 Fantasy points, and his owners have to be thrilled that he managed that. Jackson was limited for nearly all of Week 4's comeback win over the Steelers, before salvaging his line with a touchdown.

Jackson played with a cast on his wrist after suffering a small fracture last week, and was limited to just three receptions despite being targeted 10 times in the game. Some of those incompletions were the result of poor passes, but he also had a few passes glance off his hands as well.

Quarterback Mike Glennon showed plenty of trust in Jackson throughout the game, including three passes thrown his way in the end zone late. Jackson finally came down with one to win the game, and showed at least enough to think that he won't be a total nonfactor for Fantasy purposes moving forward.

However, his effectiveness was obviously an issue Sunday, which should be enough to make Fantasy owners wary about relying on him too much. 


Vincent Jackson catches three, including biggie, in Sunday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Veteran Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson only caught three of 10 passes thrown his way Sunday in Pittsburgh, but he grabbed the one that counted most.

Jackson cut inside, then back out to beat Steelers cornerback William Gay for a 5-yard touchdown with seven seconds remaining in the game and give his team a comeback victory.

He finished with just 32 yards receiving, however. Jackson will attempt to raise that total significantly when Tampa Bay travels to play New Orleans in Week 5.


Vincent Jackson gets thumbs-up for Sunday action


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Buccaneers standout wide receiver Vincent Jackson is ready to roll Sunday against the host Steelers. He had been dealing with a wrist ailment that had him deemed probable.

Vincent Jackson, Doug Martin probable for Week 4


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Two premier skill position players have been deemed probable by the Buccaneers for their Sunday game in Pittsburgh. Both wide receiver Vincent Jackson (wrist) and featured back Doug Martin (knee) appear all but set to play.

Take a cautious approach to Vincent Jackson this week


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Is there such a thing as a "small" wrist fracture for a wide receiver? I guess we'll find out this Sunday, when Buccaneers wideout Vincent Jackson tries to play through his injury while wearing a brace on his right wrist in Week 4 against the Steelers this Sunday.

Jackson should make for a great buy-low candidate at this point, given how slowly he has started the season. But this wrist injury has me wary, to be certain. The good news is he averaged 73.8 yards per game in 13 Mike Glennon starts a year ago, with seven touchdowns, and the Buccaneers seem certain to turn to Glennon Sunday.

Unfortunately, we just don't know how Jackson is going to respond to this injury. He caught just two of nine passes thrown his way last week, including just two of five from Glennon.

Jackson seems confident about his ability to play through this injury, but it might be best to take a wait-and-see approach from a Fantasy perspective. I am benching Jackson in favor of DeAndre Hopkins and a healthy Roddy White in Week 4, and you may want to do the same if faced with a similar choice.

 


Vincent Jackson to wear brace for wrist fracture


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson said he plans to continue playing despite a hairline fracture in his wrist. However, he will have to wear a brace for several weeks, according to ESPN.

"It’s something we’re going to work through," Jackson said. "The training staff’s doing a great job giving me the brace and support I can get from it. But it’s something I’m going to have to deal with for a few weeks, so I’m ready for that."


Vincent Jackson practices fully


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson, who has a small fracture in his wrist, practiced fully Wednesday and should play Sunday at Pittsburgh.

Report: Vincent Jackson to remain active despite wrist injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson suffered a small fracture in his wrist during Thursday's game against the Falcons, multiple sources told FOXSports.com. However, the injury isn't expected to cost Jackson any playing time, as he plans to play Week 4 against the Steelers.

Jackson likely sustained the injury on the first play of Tampa Bay's second offensive series after he fell on his wrist following a hit from safety Dwight Lowery. Jackson continued to play without getting treatment.


Vincent Jackson catches two passes in blowout


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson caught two balls in a blowout loss against the Falcons.

Jackson didn't make his first reception until there was 10:57 left in the fourth quarter. Three plays later, he hauled in a 3 yard score from Mike Glennon. Jackson may have pushed off on the play, but the penalty was never called. Tampa was trailing 56-0 at the time, so the score didn't matter in the long run. 

Jackson will take on the Steelers Week 4. 


Vincent Jackson held to 51 receiving yards Week 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was limited to four grabs for the second straight week, as his team took another loss at home, this time to the Rams in Week 2.

Jackson was Josh McCown's primary target throughout the afternoon, but was held to just one catch for a gain of 7 yards in the first half. He caught passes for 6, 18 and 20 yards on the first drive after halftime, however, he was only targeted once more the rest of the way.

Jackson caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for a team-high 51 yards in a 19-17 defeat. He has eight catches for 87 yards through his first two games.

Tampa Bay will travel to Atlanta for a Thursday night divisional showdown against the Falcons.


Vincent Jackson endures quiet opening-week performance


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson got off to a slow start and had a quiet game against the Panthers in Week 1.

Jackson was unable to find any chemistry early on with Josh McCown. He was targeted four times and was held without a grab in the first half. He came down with catches for 6 and 7 yards on the opening series after halftime. Jackson finished the game as the team's third-leading receiver, registering four receptions for 36 yards. He was targeted a team-high nine times in a 20-14 defeat.

The Buccaneers will host the Rams in Week 2.
