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.
