Sunday at Raymond James Stadium, the 2-3 Bucs square off against the 1-4 Saints at 1pm. The Bucs made their final preparations at practice on Friday. One concern is the health status of WR Vincent Jackson, who was limited with a calf injury. VJax was limited on Friday but head coach Greg Schiano says it was just precautionary and that he should be able to go. Jackson is listed as probable and so is LG Carl Nicks (foot).
The Saints could be without All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham this week. Graham is listed as questionable with an ankle injury and will be a game-time decision. That would be a big blow to the Saints passing game if he can’t suit up. LB David Hawthorne (hamstring) is out and it looks like LB Jonathan Vilma will not be activated from the PUP list even though he has practiced all week. Vilma was hoping to make his 2012 season debut.
Other Saints injuries of note: CB Jabari Greer (groin), G Jahri Evans(toe) and WR Lance Moore (hamstring) and LB Scott Shanle (illness) are all probable and should be able to go.
