News: McCoy has agreed to terms on a new seven-year extension with the Buccaneers, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports.
Impact: The new deal will earn McCoy close to $100 million, making him the highest-paid defensive tackle in the NFL. McCoy, the third overall pick in the 2010 draft, has managed just two sacks through fives games this season, but he's made an impact with nine quarterback hurries. Further, he recorded 9.5 sacks and 50 tackles (35 solo) in 2013 en route to a second consecutive Pro Bowl selection.
News: Glennon is expected to start against Minnesota on Sunday even if Josh McCown (thumb) plays, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Impact: McCown was listed as a full practice participant Friday, so his return could be near. With that said, Glennon has probably demonstrated his superiority as a player by this point, and it looks like it would take a poor performance or injury for Glennon to find the bench in the foreseeable future.
News: Goldson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.
Impact: Goldson practiced all week, including a full practice Friday, so it seems like his return should be imminent. It's tough to tell whether Goldson will start over Lovie Smith disciple Major Wright once he's healthy, so it's probably an IDP situation best avoided for the time being.
News: McCown (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.
Impact: Although McCown might be able to suit up against the Vikings, he's expected to serve as the backup to Mike Glennon in such a scenario. McCown is listed as a full participant in Friday's practice after logging limited showings Wednesday and Thursday.
News: Jackson (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.
Impact: Jackson did manage to practice in a limited capacity each day this week. Considering he already played through the injury a week ago, it would be a surprise if he sat out against the Vikings. Luckily for Jackson's owners, the Buccaneers have an early kickoff.
