Report: Vincent Jackson to Play vs. Eagles

It appears the Bucs will be getting one of their two weapons back from injury.

Injuries have been a struggle for the Bucs on the offensive side of the ball. Both Vincent Jackson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins have missed multiple games. Jameis Winston has tried to get by with just Mike Evans and a bunch of undrafted rookies.

Well, Winston could be getting one of his big targets back against the Eagles.

This is big news for the Bucs as Mike Evans has had a bad case of the drops, and they will need the fire-power to counter the Eagles offense on Sunday.

Vincent Jackson coming back is also great news for the Bucs rushing attack. Since Jackson and Seferian-Jenkins have both been absent from the Bucs passing attack, the ground game has struggled as defenses could key in on just stopping the run without those legit threats on the field.

Jackson should also be considered a must start in fantasy football as it is very possible Jameis Winston looks to Jackson a lot since Evans has dropped many passes lately.

As Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com reported earlier in the week, Austin Seferian-Jenkins' shoulder injury was much more severe than what was initially let on by the Bucs. If the Bucs had not used their "injured reserve designated to return" slot on Demar Dotson, ASJ would have likely been placed on that weeks ago.
