The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got the 2018 NFL season off on the right foot after toppling the New Orleans Saints 48-40 in Week 1 that has put them atop of the divisional standings in the NFC South. However, Bucs star wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a shoulder injury along with a concussion that has put his status for Week 2 action against the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles up in the air, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic.

Jackson had put together a huge performance that was pivotal in pushing the Bucs to win as he recorded five catches for 146 receiving yards along with a pair of touchdowns. He had been a major thorn in the side of the Saints, but he suffered a shoulder injury and concussion in the fourth quarter that cut his outing prematurely short. Jackson has since progressed slowly in his recovery that has put his status for Week in the air as he's dealing with multiple injuries that have compounded the situation a bit.

The absence of Jackson is a significant loss in the passing game as he has shown to be a big-play wideout that has further uplift Mike Evans' ability on the field. Now the pressure is on Evans to lead that charge with much unproven talent around him in the passing game with him being the primary target for backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Jackson is entering his second campaign with the Bucs, which he struggled in his first year posting just 50 catches on 91 targets for 668 receiving yards and three touchdowns in 14 games played. This has been a promising start that could set the table for a bounce-back campaign for him to re-establish himself as one of the top big-play wideouts in the league. There should be more clarity on his status for Sunday's game by the end of the week.
