Vincent Jackson injury update: Buccaneers WR questionable, might not be 100 percent for fantasy owners

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson is questionable on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Editor's Note: Vincent Jackson's status updated!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Jackson did not participate in practice all week with a rib injury suffered against the New England Patriots.

Jackson joins fellow receiver Mike Williams with the questionable designation. Jackson's injury is considered more serious than Williams', however. Many expect Jackson to play, but to what extent he'd play is still up in the air. It certainly seems unlikely he'll be able to go 100 percent.

Recently, we've seen the Atlanta Falcons use Roddy White as a decoy and that seems to be paying off, given that Julio Jones is the NFL's leading receiver. There's no reason to suspect the Buccaneers will do that with Jackson, but it is one possibility if he's healthy enough to run but not healthy enough to go full speed. At any rate, Tampa Bay doesn't have great wide receiver depth.

Fantasy Impact: Even if Jackson is healthy and good to go, there's a big red flag this week: the debut of rookie third-round quarterback Mike Glennon. Josh Freeman was recently benched and we have no idea how Glennon will perform for his receivers and their fantasy owners by proxy. Whether or not he'll play should come down to the wire and if you have a better option, start them, but Jackson at 80 percent is still better than an awful lot of receivers out there.
