This is some good news for Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans, wide receiver Vincent Jackson isn’t on the injury report. Jackson has been battling through a rib injury before the bye week.

In their last game against the Arizona Cardinals, a loss, Jackson wasn’t really effective catching only 2 passes for 27 yards. The Buccaneers and rookie quarterback Mike Glennon need all the help they can get in turning around this pass offense. The Bucs passing offense ranks dead last in the NFL, with an average of 174.3 yards per game.

Fortunately for the Bucs, their opponent this week, the Philadelphia Eagles, have the 30th ranked pass defense.
