DeSean Jackson Hopes To Play Sunday


After missing the last few games due to a thumb injury, Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson has returned to practice. He hopes to play this Sunday against the Cowboys.

Jackson sustained his thumb injury in week one and suffered through it for as long as he could. He played in 11 games, recording 750 yards on 40 receptions and 4 touchdowns, which is better than his last year receiving stats. He also carried the ball 5 times for 25 yards and one touchdown.

Here’s a fun fact: Quarterback Jameis Winston has not won on the road as a starter since 2016 when the losing streak began on the road against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Buccaneers will go into this week’s game with a chip on their shoulder, with hopes of at least bettering their last season record of 5-11. They could end the season 7-9, and with all the injuries the Bucs endured this season, that would be quite the feat.
