Vincent Jackson, Jacquies Smith sidelined for Bucs
The Bucs will likely be limited by injuries again Sunday when the play the Giants at home, as WR Vincent Jackson and DE Jacquies Smith were both sidelined as the team returned to practice Wednesday.
Jackson, who missed last week's game with a knee injury, was not dressed for practice -- his injury was initially reported to sideline him for multiple games -- and Smith still had a boot on his left foot, as he did after Sunday's game, which he left from with a sprained ankle.
TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins continues to practice and could play for the first time in seven weeks on Sunday, and DT Tony McDaniel was back practicing Wednesday after missing two games with a groin injury. DE Will Gholston, who was limited by a knee injury Sunday, was back practicing, though he had a brace on his left knee.
S Major Wright, who has missed two games with a hamstring injury, remains sidelined, and LG Logan Mankins was not practicing, but that's likely just a rest day for the veteran as he took one day last week.
With an eye toward Smith's injury, the Bucs re-signed DE Lawrence Sidbury, who had been with the team in preseason, to the active roster Wednesday. The team also added two players to the practice squad in LB Quayshawn Nealy, a Winter Haven native who played at Georgia Tech and was with the Seahawks in preseason, as well as DE Ronald Powell, who played at Florida and was a fifth-round pick of the Saints last season.
