The Buccaneers made a decision to start a new quarterback this Sunday against the Cardinals. But injuries might force them to also start two new wide receivers. That's because Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams missed practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday.
Jackson suffered a rib injury early in the second half of last week's loss to the Patriots and was unable to return. Williams played through a hamstring injury last week, but now that decision might be costing him.
Of course, we'll see if either or both of these players practice Friday. Right now, I'd give Jackson better odds of playing just because hamstring injuries are so sensitive and can linger for so long. Williams could be a solid sleeper this week with Jackson possibly being locked down by Patrick Peterson, but this whole situation is very murky right now. Kevin Ogletree and Eric Page are next up on the Bucs' WR depth chart. It's not shaping up to be a great debut for quarterback Mike Glennon.
