Bucs wide receiver Vincent Jackson joined the long injury list last Thursday night after fracturing his right wrist in Tampa Bay’s 56-24 loss the Falcons. On Thursday, the veteran talked to the local media and said he is almost certain to play on Sunday at Pittsburgh.
“It is something we are going to work through,” Jackson said. “The training staff is doing a great job giving me the brace and the support I can get from it. But it something I am going to have to deal with for a few weeks, so I am ready for that.”
Jackson said the trainers are working on making playing with a brace as easy as possible.
“We are working on a few things, it will be as limited as possible, not restricting my movement,” Jackson said. “So I am not too worried about it. I am going to be able to go out there and do what I need to do. We try and make it as unobtrusive as possible, but again, it is about safety first, I don’t want to make it any worse, so I am going to work around whatever they suggest.
“There is some range of motion (limitation) in there but again it is nothing that I think is going to slow me down once you are focused on what you are doing. I am hoping it doesn’t affect me.”
With Josh McCown likely unable to go on Sunday, second-year QB Mike Glennon will most likely be under center, but Jackson is concerned.
“We are hoping and pulling for Josh, he is doing everything he can do, getting all the extra treatment and preparing mentally as well,” Jackson said. “But if Mike has to step in and go this week, he has been doing it since we started up this offseason. He has been taking all the reps, the mental reps, and he is preparing well this week and I know he won’t miss a beat.”

We need a different beat. The out of rhythm one to which the team has marched so far is just getting us beat.
