Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams held out of practice, fantasy status uncertain

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

Tampa Bay's top two receivers haven't practiced this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

After sitting out Wednesday, Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams were both held out of practice again on Thursday. Jackson is dealing with a rib injury he suffered last week against the Patriots while Williams is nursing a hamstring issue.

Rookie quarterback Mike Glennon was named the starter in Tampa earlier this week. There's a possiblity he may not have his best two options at wide receiver in in first NFL start.

Fantasy impact: Adam Schefter said on Monday that Jackson's injury was not serious. His absence in practice would appear to say otherwise. Jackson could still make an impact in Week 3, but he would likely need to practice to some extent on Friday before the Bucs next game.

Williams played through his hamstring injury in Week 2. Missing two days of practice, though, indicates his ailment could be worse than initially expected. With both receivers banged up to a greater extent than earlier imagined, the odds of Tampa Bay's offense igniting on Sunday are low.
