According to FOX Sports Ross Jones, Tampa Bay wide receiver Vincent Jackson suffered a fractured wrist in last Thursday’s game with the Falcons, but isn’t expected to miss any time and will play Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Bucs head coach Lovie Smith did not want to get into the injury situation during his Monday afternoon press conference, instead saying he would address them on Wednesday when the NFL requires teams to provide injury updates for their roster.
Jackson, like most of the offense, has struggled through three game notching just 10 catches for 102 yards and just one touchdown.

Are we sure V. Jackson didn’t really injure his wrist in the first series against the Panthers (kind of like M. Johnson did)? That would explain a lot.
Let’s hope V-Jax starts playing like a star again. Then again, if Glennon is behind center, #83 better not run a route past 8 yards or he won’t see the ball.
