The Philadelphia Eagles turned some heads this offseason after releasing speedy wide receiver DeSean Jackson this past offseason. Jackson was quickly signed by divisional opponent Washington Redskins. Jackson has been dealing with a slight hamstring injury during training camp and has been rested from time to time in order to not aggravate his injury. Washington has been conducting dual practices this week with the New England Patriots leading up to a game between the two teams Thursday night.
During a 7-on-7 walk through this morning. Jackson made a cut on the field and immediately came up limping. Jackson was taken off the field as trainers took him to their tent. NFL Network is reporting that the receiver’s left ankle was heavily taped and ice was applied. Jackson was seen walking off the field under his own power, but it’s now doubtful he will see any action against the Patriots tomorrow night.
Jackson posted an 82 reception season for 1,332 yards, career highs under Chip Kelly’s offense. The mercurial receiver appeared in all 16 games during 2013 for just the first time since his rookie season in 2008.
