  Buccaneers | Vita Vea's status uncertain    Sat Sep 22, 12:33 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Vita Vea (calf) has practiced all week, but his status for Week 3 is uncertain because conditioning indoors is different than playing football outdoors, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: Vea would give the team added strength to their run defense when he's back in action. The rookie first-round pick has lost 15 pounds since he has been sidelined with the injury.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay not ready to address QB situation    Mon Sep 17, 03:41 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has yet to be given any public assurances he will serve as the starting quarterback after Jameis Winston returns from his three-week suspension in Week 4, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is absolutely on fire right now and it's going to be difficult to go back to Winston if the team is still playing well. We could see another big game out of Fitzpatrick in Week 3 against the Steelers 'defense.'

  Buccaneers | DeSean Jackson expected to play    Sat Sep 15, 01:12 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (concussion) is expected to clear the concussion protocol and play in Week 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bucs here. Jackson had a disappointing 2017 season and didn't show good chemistry with QB Jameis Winston. With Winston suspended, Jackson looked much better catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. We like him as a 'what the heck' flex play with upside this week against the Eagles.

  Buccaneers | Vita Vea in better shape    Sat Sep 15, 09:54 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DT Vita Vea (calf) could resume practicing this week, according to a radio interview head coach Dirk Koetter did Friday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: In the meantime, Vea has lost 15 pounds while doing conditioning work in the pool and on the stationary bike. Vea hasn't practiced for over a month recovering from this calf injury. A 2018 first-round pick for the Bucs, Vea is an explosive run-stuffer when healthy.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (concussion) practiced Friday, Sept. 14, but head coach Dirk Koetter did not say if Jackson has cleared the league's concussion protocol.

Footballguys view: Jackson is expected to play on Sunday, but we'll need to check inactives to be sure. Even though he had a massive Week 1, Jackson isn't an automatic play against one of his former teams.

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: It seems like Jackson is closer to playing than some thought. The concussion was not his only injury this week as he also had a minor shoulder injury. If Jackson plays, Chris Godwin goes back to the 2b to Jackson's 2a in the pecking order.

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB DeSean Jackson (concussion, shoulder) is in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Sept. 12, and that's a bigger concern than his shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: Getting through the concussion protocol can take any amount of time. Right now, Jackson looks doubtful to start in Week 2. That could make Chris Godwin a better fantasy play. We'll see if Jackson can get cleared and get back in action in the near future.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, concussion) is reportedly dealing with a shoulder injury in addition to the concussion he suffered in Week 1 versus the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Monitor his progress during the week of practice to see if Jackson can get cleared from the concussion protocol. Also watch to see how much of a problem this shoulder injury becomes. If Jackson can't go in Week 2, then look for Chris Godwin to take on a larger role.
