Vincent Jackson injury: Bucs WR questionable with injured ribs

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay will look to muster a comeback without its star receiver.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson left Sunday's game against the Patriots with a rib injury, according to John Clayton. He is questionable to return. Jackson has three catches for 34 yards in the Week 3 matchup, dropping some key targets.

The Buccaneers currently trail the Patriots, 20-3, in the fourth quarter.

Jackson has 12 catches for 231 yards this season already. He had 72 catches for 1,384 yards and a league-leading 19.2 yards per catch with the Bucs last season, his first in Tampa Bay. Jackson has managed to stay relatively healthy in his career, having started 34 straight games since missing eight during the 2010 season.

Jackson signed a free agent deal with the Bucs last offseason for five years and $55,555,555. He had previously spent seven years with the San Diego Chargers after being a second-round pick out of Northern Colorado.

Kevin Ogletree, signed in the offseason away from the Dallas Cowboys, may see more playing time in the interim.
