The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can’t seem to catch a break at the wide receiver position. After finding out that Louis Murphy would be out for the year with a torn ACL, it piled on a bit with the news of Vincent Jackson’s injury.

According to Ian Rapoport of, Jackson will not only miss Week 8, but he’s likely to miss multiple weeks.

This leaves the Buccaneers with second-year stud Mike Evans, and then a mix of players from the likes of Russell Shepard, Donteea Dye and Adam Humphries. It’ll be interesting to see how things play out with Jackson out multiple weeks, but at least one of those players will need to step up in his absence.
