Vincent Jackson WR TB 12 Days

Jackson (rib) missed practice again Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

With another 'did not practice' on the ledger, Jackson's injury situation is entering a gloomy stage. However, everything would change with an appearance in drills Friday, when his status for Sunday's game against the Ravens could receive clarification.

Jackson didn't practice Wednesday due to an injured rib, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports.

The extent of Jackson's injury is unknown, but his activity level in practice this week should reveal his availability Sunday versus the Ravens. Expect some clarification on his status before week's end.

Jackson (undisclosed) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Jenna Laine of FOX Sports 1 reports.

Jackson suffered a slight fracture to his right wrist in Week 3, but after landing on the injury report in the subsequent week of preparation, he didn't make an appearance prior to Sunday's overtime loss in New Orleans. Through five contests, he's garnered at least nine targets on four occasions, meaning his presence will be imperative to fantasy pursuits this coming Sunday against the Ravens. Meanwhile, whatever spurred his lack of practice Wednesday should be known soon enough.

Jackson led the Buccaneers with eight receptions for 144 yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Although he didn't score, Jackson had his biggest game of the season, eclipsing 51 receiving yards for the first time. Quarterback Mike Glennon targeted him 12 times, and Jackson owners can expect another large chunk of opportunities next week with Mike Evans expected to sit out once again.

Jackson (wrist) had three catches on 10 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Steelers.

Jackson was having an incredibly quiet fantasy day but turned it around by catching a game-winning five-yard touchdown pass with five seconds left in the game. He has yet to catch more than four passes in a game this season, but he's averaging 8.7 targets per game and had a season-high 10 on Sunday with Mike Glennon under center. Jackson had some big games with Glennon throwing to him last season, and with rookie Mike Evans suffering a groin injury Sunday, Jackson could see an even bigger workload in Week 5 at the Saints.

Jackson (wrist) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

A week of full practices has probably left fantasy owners unconcerned about Jackson's health, but the team's shaky play at quarterback has dampened his impact to date. Jackson has only 10 catches, 102 yards and one touchdown through three games, and while his output can't stand to plummet further under newly-appointed starter Mike Glennon, a fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season may be at risk.

Jackson (wrist) is probable for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Jackson's wrist injury apparently isn't much of an issue, as he practiced fully all week. He's in a very unstable situation due to Josh McCown's absence and the uncertainty at Tampa Bay's offensive coordinator position, but the good news is that quarterback Mike Glennon probably can't be any worse than McCown was.

Jackson indicated that he will be ready to play Sunday against the Steelers, despite his wrist injury, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

Jackson, who practiced fully Wednesday, may end up sporting a brace on his wrist Sunday, but the wideout plans to continue playing through what has been described as a small wrist fracture.

Jackson (wrist) practiced in full Wednesday, Jenna Laine of FOX Sports 1 reports.

Despite coming down with a purported fracture in his right wrist in last Thursday's loss in Atlanta, Jackson followed up Monday's unfettered practice with another Wednesday. The receiver will apparently cope with the injury by wearing a wrap, but it remains to be seen how effective he'll be during his first test Sunday at Pittsburgh.

Jackson, who is reportedly dealing with a small fracture in his right wrist, practiced as normal Monday, with his wrist wrapped, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

So far there has been nothing to suggest that Jackson's wrist issue will hamper his chances of suiting up in Week 4 against the Steelers, a notion supported by the work that the wideout was able to get in on Monday.
