As Vincent Jackson went down with a knee injury on Sunday, the fear was that he would miss multiple weeks. Those fears might be coming true according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
"The outlook is not good I'm told on Vincent Jackson," Rapoport said. "He came down with a knee injury last week and I'm told he is expected to be out this Sunday, and not just this Sunday, this is expected to be a multi-week injury."
Vincent Jackson has been Jameis Winston's top target as Mike Evans had started the year injured and slowed back to 100%.
“We’re not there," Lovie Smith responded when asked if he could confirm Jackson being out multi weeks. "He didn’t practice today. He has a knee injury. As far as multiple[weeks], we’re not ready to go into much more detail than that because we don’t know a lot more. [It] hasn’t been that long since the game. [He] wasn’t able to finish the game. [He] wasn’t able to practice today, so that’s where we are at right now.”
I wouldn't expect to see Vincent Jackson on the field any time soon.
