Status of Bucs S Tanard Jackson will be determined Sunday



S Tanard Jackson returned to practice Friday on a limited basis and did some jogging, but that doesn't mean his left hamstring strain will allow him to run with Green Bay Packers receivers.

Jackson said whether he plays Sunday will depend how he feels following warmups at chilly Lambeau Field.

"Yeah, it'll be a game day decision, that's what it's looking like right now,'' Jackson said. "We've still got a few days to rest and see how it feels.

"It was bothering me when I was in the game (versus the Texans). It's really the first time I've ever had to leave a game because of an injury, so this is something new to me.''

Jackson, who missed 56 games while serving a suspension, had an interception in each of his first two games with the Bucs this season. But he suffered the hamstring strain returning a pick against the Chicago Bears in London Oct. 23.

Jackson started last Sunday against the Texans but clearly struggled on plays that resulted in two long Texans touchdown passes.

"Tanard went out there and moved a little bit,'' coach Raheem Morris said. "We've still got to see, though. We'll see on Sunday. We'll get him on the grass and let him run around a little bit. We'll see how he is. (Saturday) is a walk-through, so that won't mean much.''
