Bucs WR Vincent Jackson (knee) to miss Week 8

Ian Rapoport, Twitter - [Full Article]

Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson, who injured his knee last Sunday, is not expected to play this week, source says.

Fantasy Impact: 

With Jackson out, Mike Evans is going to see heavier usage while Jameis Winston loses a major weapon. Rookie Donteea Dye caught one pass, a seven-yard TD, filling in for Jackson (and Louis Murphy, who is done for the season). The Buccaneers are going to have to make a couple of moves at the position. They have three rookie receivers on the practice squad: Adam Humphries, Rannell Hall and Evan Spencer. They also reportedly signed Andre Davis, though he's not listed on the team's official website. Jackson's absence creates a great opportunity for TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins if he can get healthy enough to play.
