Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson left his team's Week 3 game against the New England Patriots with a ribs injury, and he is questionable to return.

The NFL's Around the League Twitter account documented the development, as the Bucs struggled offensively in losing 23-3 on the road at Gillette Stadium:

Josh Freeman is still in the game for the Bucs, but Vincent Jackson is not. Tampa's best WR is questionable to return with a rib injury.
