Jackson brought in all four of his targets for 129 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 27-21 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson came into the game having just passed the concussion protocol, and he made his presence felt from the opening play. The veteran speedster hauled in a 75-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to set the tone for what would turn out to be another prolific day for the Buccaneers' passing attack. Jackson has opened the season with back-to-back 100-yard games, and after posting a career-low 13.8 yards per catch last season, the 31-year-old is averaging a jaw-dropping 30.5 yards on his nine catches thus far in 2018. He'll look to keep the momentum going versus a Steelers squad that was diced by Patrick Mahomes for six touchdowns Sunday when Tampa and Pittsburgh face off in a Week 3 Monday night showdown.

Jackson (concussion) is active for Sunday's Week 2 tilt against the Eagles, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

All indications are the veteran speedster will take his usual spot in the starting lineup as the No. 2 receiver opposite Mike Evans. Jackson will look to build in a stellar Week 1 effort versus the Saints where he finished with five receptions for 146 yards and two touchdowns.

Jackson cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Saturday and is expected to start Sunday against the Eagles, a source told Peter Schrager of FoxSports.com.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson still carries a questionable designation heading into the Week 2 matchup, but his status no longer appears to be up in the air after he advanced through all phases of the five-step protocol. Even while he was in the protocol, Jackson still managed a limited practice Thursday and a full practice Friday, so he shouldn't face any restrictions against his former team. Prior to his early departure due to the head injury in the Buccaneers' Week 1 upset of the Saints, Jackson shined as a downfield threat, hauling in all five of his targets for 146 yards and two scores.

Jackson is expected to clear the concussion protocol and play in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson practiced in full Friday, but such activity doesn't mean he emerged from the protocol. Because he's slated to do so, though, he should act as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Mike Evans in Week 2. Expect Jackson's status to be clarified approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson was a full participant at Friday's practice, so he has been trending in this direction. Barring any setbacks, he should full go against the defending champions. Still, final confirmation on his status is not expected until closer to kickoff. The veteran speedster racked up an impressive 146 yards and two touchdowns on five receptions in Week 1.

Jackson (concussion) was a full participant at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson started as a non-participant Wednesday and progressed to limited participation Thursday. The listing on Friday's injury report suggests he's on the right side of 'questionable', but we may not have a final answer until some point over the weekend. Fortunately, the Bucs are scheduled for a 1:00 PM ET kickoff in a tricky matchup with the defending champs. Chris Godwin will take on extra snaps and targets if Jackson doesn't end up playing.

Jackson (concussion) was spotted during the portion of Friday's practice open to the media, according to Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site.

EDGE Analysis

It won't be clear until after practice how much work Jackson was able to get in, but his presence alone bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Steelers. The Buccaneers will reveal Jackson's status for Week 2 after Friday's session comes to a close.

Jackson (shoulder/concussion) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson has made enough progress through the concussion protocol to take part in individual drills, but that's where the buck stopped Thursday. No matter, he seems to be on the right path to miss no time as a result of a head injury. His listing on Friday's injury report will be telling for his potential to play Sunday versus the Eagles.
