UPDATE: The Bucs announced Vaughn is questionable to return with a chest injury, per Brad Biggs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn caught a pass over the middle on Thursday night, but was rocked by cornerback Kyler Fuller, dislodging the ball for a turnover. Vaughn got up and walked off on his own power, but then went to the locker room for evaluation.

As you can see, the fact that he was able to get up at all is a positive sign after this tremendous tackle:

Vaughn is the only other running back that was prepared to play tonight, as Leonard Fournette is active, but only for an emergency. If Vaughn is out, we will probably see Ronald Jones take over the receiving downs instead of seeing Fournette enter the game.
