05:04 PM ET 09.22 | It's beginning to look like a rough week for wide receivers around the NFL. After Dallas Cowboys wideout Miles Austin had to leave their game against the St. Louis Rams with a hamstring injury, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson had to do the same in his game against the New England Patriots. Jackson, who came over from the San Diego Chargers last season and is the Bucs' top wideout, began reaching toward his side before walking over to the Bucs sideline. The medical staff began to check him out and deemed he has a "rib injury" though didn't give any further explanation.

Might as well go on IR. The rest of the team mailed it in anyway.

The Bucs are a complete waste of a lot of talent. I don't know what the problem is down there but they have a lot of pieces in place. Not hard to see why Greg Schiano is under the microscope.

The problem seems to be that the coach treats professionals like 19-year-old college students.

A boss can't treat subordinates like that and expect no backlash.

Schiano is on borrowed time in Tampa. Nothing short of a playoff spot will save his job.

I read on ESPN that Schiano didn't return to Tampa with the team. The article referenced a family medical emergency. When I read that, I immediately thought he was going to talk to a college. Probably just coincidental timing. He has lost the team, but usually these guys won't quit because it blows their severance.

It seems like the Bucs have a college Head Coach running the team. IMO it's time for an upgrade....

Agreed. The team definitely is not playing for the coach but their incentives.

It was Suh's fault.
