Injury update: Vincent Jackson limited

By Pat Yasinskas

TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to move gradually when it comes to wide receiver Vincent Jackson’s injured hamstring.

Jackson took part in Thursday’s practice on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday’s session. Jackson also missed a couple of practices last week, but was able to play in Sunday’s victory against Buffalo.

Coach Greg Schiano said Jackson’s hamstring is better than it was a week ago at this time.

“Our goal is to get him back to being full,’’ Schiano said. “But I want to be real careful because, with him, his legs are everything.’’

Defensive end Da’Quan Bowers (knee) and center Jeremy Zuttah (shoulder) also were limited in Thursday’s practice. Guard Davin Joseph (knee and shoulder) returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday.
