the team says their captain suffered an acl injury during the monday night win over carolina. however, the exact moment of the injury is not known to jackson himself. he simply complained about knee comfort after the game. what does it all mean? the bucks could activate him in eight weeks if the knee is healthy enough to go, but they only get one ir call-up a year, and charles sims is also on the injured reserve. jackson will receive the full value of the remaining $9.77 million left if healthy cecil shortz will replace him in the role. while i may not be on the field for the foreseeable future, i will focus on beginning rehab as soon as possible and finding ways to support my teammates in whatever way i can. dirk koetter said i know being placed on injured reserve is difficult for him, but he'll be a strong presence in the locker

prepare and development because that's the time of team first leader he is. moving on to usf football. the bulls are working on a short week this week. they travel to philly for a friday night game against temple. the bulls offense steam rolled the owls last season racking up over 500 yards of offense. despite the win over the 22nd ranks owls, temple went to the champ championship over usf. the bulls haven't forgotten that. last year. it wasn't by fluke they earned it. good football team. so we got to earn what we want going up there to win a football game. that's how you earn it. that's what we told our guys we wanted, we have to earn it and go on the road and it's a tough environment. that's how it is when you try to get to a conference championship game. >> the lightning say they need to do a better job managing the puck early to avoid digging a hole tonight against the florida panthers. that's been the case in the
6:24 pm
wings and the devils. tonight's game starts at amalie arena at 7:30 this evening. before the puck drops they honor vinnie lecavalier. he owns records in power-play goals and games played. he's best known on his contributions on the he's ice ling them to the 2004 stanley cup championship. he was a mentor to younger players like steven stamkos. >> it's the stuff he did away from the rink and in the community and how much he's entrenched himself and his family into this city, which is very special. so that's something i've always looked up to vinnie for. it's a great role model. to the ice tonight, and this is a match-up that features the top two teams, the atlantic division and the top two teams early on this season. both the lightning and panthers
6:25 pm
one win separates one from the other. the game will also feature a former bolt up against his old team. he faces the lightning as the panthers leading scorer through the first two games. >> he has a huge personality. he's really, really well-liked in our room. i know when he signed with florida, we were a little dejected at that. not only that he left us, but the fact he went to florida. he could have gone we'll be cheering for him tonight, but i cheer for him for the other 76 games whether we don't play him. >> back to the vincent jackson news. this is a big deal. we don't know whether or not we'll see him again. his presence is needed in the locker room. he's a team leader and will be here in tampa bay no matter what. this is his home. we know that moving forward. the severity of the knee injury we don't really know.
6:26 pm
injury. you mess with the knees, that's trouble. >> it's tough. >> we wish him well on his rehab, and perhaps we see him back again. it's tough when you're in your 12th year informant league. you don't know. >> he's had a huge impact off the field, too. >> huge. >> we hope that continues. >> no doubt. >> thank you, scott. we've got exactly now three weeks to go before the election. are some republican-leaning states turning blue? >> we look at that. more fallout from hillary clinton's

smith, the mother of sean smith, to be a guest tomorrow night. in washington, kristen fisher, fox news. >> let's bring in craig patrick. hi there, craig. a lot of talk from donald trump about the election being rigged. that seems to be the keyword this week, as eve heard before. the president strongly denies that, of course. why is he saying this, and what does he hope to accomplish? >> when donald trump is speaking about voter fraud, he's not talking about the potential for systems getting hacked and numbers changed. he's of people illegally posing as somebody they're not and then voting -- for example, voting in the name of someone already dead or someone that votes in one state and votes in another state. by the way, only is there evidence of this that appears to have been produced by aconservative activist james o'keefe in newly released videos and in our investigations we have found evidence of voter fraud in florida. dozens of cases of people that voted in this state in 2012 and
6:32 pm
carolina again. we followed one case all the way through to prosecution in our follow-up reports. so there's no question that there's evidence of voter fraud. the question is is it widespread as donald trump maintains, and how do you define widespread? that remains to be seen because trump has not produced specific evidence to note that it is by common definition widespread but that because he's focusing on this this will continue to be a big issue in the campaign. he's noncitizens voting as well, and there's studies showing there is a small percentage of that swm. >> we are hearing this for the first time from donald trump's wife melania. she spoke about the allegations of sexual misconduct by her husband. she called thep lies. ho did she come across do you think, and why was it important to hear from her? >> it's important to that's true from a spouse when those allegations are thrown against a candidate because that spouse speaking up for the character in this case of her husband, i
6:33 pm
campaign. in this case she is saying what donald trump said on that tape was inappropriate to her, but she maintains that he was egged on in effect and that she had never heard him speak that way in her experience and based on her experience with him that he respects women. and again, it's important to hear from a spouse, because that is somebody who knows that individual best and were she not to stand up to and defend certainly bigger flags. so this is an important moment for the trump campaign. >> no doubt about that. anxious for tomorrow night. craig, thanks. >> thanks. if you missed the global recall of all samsung galaxy note 7 phones, you have another option to ditch the device before you board a plane. here's how that works. samsung set up exchange booths at major airports around the world includes in the u.s., south korea and australia. note 7 users can swap their

introduce it to a new generation of fans. >> i think people in the younger generation are going to be reluctant to watch something made in the '70s. it's not the high quality that they're used to or whatever. we're able to kind of show them what they're used to seeing but bring the story into a new generation of people. >> and they're all humbled to have the original d dr. frankenfurter jim curry joining them for the retelling. >> jump to the left. president of a nation support the new president. i think for laverne in particular, having him around he gave us great energy and i remember one thing was he said i want to be there to hang out. he's so sweet and obviously a monumental talent. >> having him as the godfather figure made us feel like we could advance kfltly. that was huge to have him. >> in hollywood, jonathan hunt,
6:48 pm
horror picture show on fox 13 thursday night at 8:00. takes you back, doesn't it? >> yeah, for us. there's a whole new generation that has never seen it. >> hopefully they experience the rice and toast in the movie theater sometime if only imagining it. >> hey, paul. >> good day. getting ready for three mores day to go with cool weather. >> i'm ready now. >> counting it down for sure. i think i want an umbrella today. look at the view from the sirata beach cam. a fantastic byes way, thanks everybody for posting fall foliage pictures from around the country. i had a good one come in from spokane, washington earlier today. a bunch of them from maine, new hampshire, vermont, some in north carolina. they're on my facebook page. check it out. still a few tonight. sirata beach looks good and great sunset at 6:57 tonight. 89 is the high, just missed the record by one. the morning low is 71. 77, which, of course, that was
6:49 pm
snowed in tampa. 47 and 71 again the morning low. we're not close to the number. highs across the board going back 18 days this month, and it's another warm month. check out this streak going back to the 13th, 89, 88, 90, 90, 89, we do a high 80s here. over the weekend a significant temperature drop as the cold front finally goes we're not cool with a northeast wind blowing over land. i saw a couple of showers or sprinkles up in citrus county, but there's not much left. that's that. temperatures around the state today, jacksonville is 79, vero is 81, miami is 83 and key west 83 and tallahassee 87 and the dew points are really not that bad. so even though we've had high temperatures well into the 80s, the dew points in most places are in the mid-60s.
6:50 pm
with a good wind it feels nice to be outside. the winds are active for the past literally eight days. we've had a gusty northeast win and general low pressure east of us and high pressure across the mid-atlantic states giving us a gusty wind. gusting to 22 and causing big-time flooding along the east coast. it's long-lasting swells initially from matthew and then nicole and now there's another system over the bahamas. this has been pounding our east coast and some flooding, too. here's the low over the bahamas that will probably become tropical storm otto. i want to reassure you that if this does develop, it's not going to take a big left-hand turn and go this way. usually tropical systems in mid-october do not move east to west. they usually move due north or northeast. as we move through oshth, the jet stream dives farther south and the upper level winds turn west to east.
6:51 pm
tropical system to go this way in mid-october, and the model hinted that. you see it developing and then moving north kind of paralleling our stay. one thing that low will eventually do is drag down lots of dry air. we'll show you that on the water vapor by all the brown. lots of dry air moves in, and dry air, you know, also cools nicely. so a dry air moving and our nighttime lows this weekend will drop into the 50s and 6 most spots. we stay with a northeast wind tomorrow, so tomorrow is a lot like today. clouds move from northeast to southwest and maybe a sprinkle. more of the same on the thursday, and even friday should be generally rain-free. behind this front is when things really start cooling off. that will be happening over the weekend. more near-record heat today from texas all the way across the mid-atlantic states.
6:52 pm
which will take a huge dip along the east coast that will drive the cold front through and keep us dry and cool for a couple of days, and eventually it usually happens. the trough kind of lifts up, winds turn for us to the east, and by tuesday and wednesday of next week, we start to warm right back up. tonight nice night, mostly clear and pleasant and sunset in a few minutes. we're down to 70. sunshine tomorrow and a warm afternoon. we're back up to 87. no change coming up on thursday, we're back in the mid to upper 80 about time. coolest weather since about may. we stay with temperatures in the 70s and nighttime lows in the 50s, it's probably a good time the next couple of days to maybe go out back and dust off the fire pit a little bit and take off that tarp and all the bugs scatter. >> like tis weekend? >> this weekend. that's what we've talking about since may. >> may. >> so it will feel pretty good.
