Buccaneers HC Lovie Smith told reporters that TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is “not there yet” in regarding to his recovery from a shoulder strain.
“Most of you out there saw Austin Seferian-Jenkins be able to get into pads and do a little bit, so it’s a step in the right direction with him,” Smith said, via PewterReport.com. “Once we get him back – disregarding the receivers – it’s going to help our offense. We’re not there yet.”
Smith was also asked about the reports that WR Vincent Jackson could be out multiple weeks with a knee injury.
“We’re not there,” Smith said. “He didn’t practice today. He has a knee injury. As far as multiple [weeks], we’re not ready to go into much more detail than that because we don’t know a lot more. [It] hasn’t been that long since the game. [He] wasn’t able to finish the game. [He] wasn’t able to practice today, so that’s where we are at right now.”
