Is Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson playing?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are considering resting wide receiver Vincent Jackson through the bye week. Jackson is making life hard on his coaches by pushing to play and is reportedly deciding whether to take a pain killing shot to make life easier.

Jackson is dealing with what has been called a “5-week” rib injury. We’ve seen quarterbacks, like Tony Romo recently, play through rib injuries and get pain killing injections. For wide receivers it is different, they expose their ribs and can take considerably more hits there in an unprotected area. For fantasy owners, that injury coupled with rookie Mike Glennon getting the nod should make you wary to start him.

Remember, there is still no guarantee that he’ll play.
