The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have a bit of a problem on their hands as veteran wide receiver Vincent Jackson was not spotted at the beginning of practice today.

Jackson has been dealing with a hamstring injury and it may be more serious than some people thought. Jackson has been a huge part of this Tampa Bay offense as the team has started to pick it up during the second half of the season.
He’s brought in 61 receptions for nearly 1,000 receiving yards with five touchdowns. Vincent was limited during yesterday’s practice as head coach Greg Schiano told the media that he didn’t think his leg issue was serious.
That could change.
Now with Jackson absent from practice, corner-back Darrelle Revis was practicing again on Thursday. Revis has been dealing with a shoulder and neck problem lately and should be able to cover Stevie Johnson just fine on Sunday.
CB Darrelle Revis practiced for second straight day. Appears to be fine.

Tampa Bay and Buffalo will be an entertaining game, hopefully as entertaining as Buffalo’s previous game.
