Redskins WR DeSean Jackson Doesn’t Dress For Wednesday Practice

DeSean Jackson

As the 0-2 Redskins got back to the practice field today to get ready for the 2-0 Giants, they got some bad news, as they were without wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Jackson wasn’t dressed as he watched the wide receivers participate in individual drills, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

It’s unknown at this point why Jackson wasn’t dressed. He didn’t leave Sunday’s 27-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys with an injury, and Redskins Coach Jay Gruden didn’t mention Jackson’s health during his press conference on Monday.

Jackson has 142 receiving yards on nine receptions through two games. He looked sharp during training camp, but he hasn’t been able to stretch the field because of quarterback Kirk Cousins’s deep-ball struggles.

Not good news for the Redskins, who need all the weapons they can get as they go up against a Giants team who already smell blood in the water and will look to hand the Redskins already their third loss of 2016.

    JACKSON should have had a TD in the DALLAS game. Wide open and running free at the 15 while COUSINS sees his TE in a tight window for a completion and a first down.

    The kid doesn’t see the whole picture at this point.

    I’m know the coaches called the sure play, the secure play, the safe play to gain yardage into the red zone.

    And the defense knows what that is too.

    A great QB however sees the defense bunched inside to take away the sure thing, and focuses instead on the outside where one-on-one play could result in a score.

    Think back to BEN ROTHLESBERGER to ANTONIO BROWN in game #1. A little hand signal, and BASHAUD BREELAND is the goat.

    That wasn’t a play made out of desperation, or on the fly during the play.

    ROTHLESBERGER knew what the REDSKINS defense would take away, and overcame it with a move outside the box before the ball was ever snapped.

    At this point, COUSINS isn’t concentrating on more than what the coach’s call. He’s not opened up his game to see what’s outside his boxed in mind-set.

    Outside the mind-set is where the game is won or lost.

    JACKSON knows it, and I think this “injury” is his reaction to COUSINS’ play.

    If he had confidence in the QB, these are injuries he would play through.

    But why aggravate them, and potentially hurt your body long-term if the result will be continued play like we saw Sunday?

    If I’m right, JACKSON has a point.

    COUSINS is in his fifth season. If he isn’t seeing the field well enough to extemporize by now, when will it happen?

    JACKSON and I aren’t sure it will. And the franchise tag hanging around the QB’s neck says so too.

    If COUSINS can’t handle the pressure in this instance and rise above it, he is not now and maybe never will be a franchise NFL QB – period.
