WR DeSean Jackson Back on the Practice Field on a Limited Basis


Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson said he’s feeling better, but he was still limited in practice because of a knee and ankle issue. However, Jackson said he’s planning on playing Sunday vs. the New York Giants, John Keim of reports.

Jackson injured his left knee vs. the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and did not practice Wednesday. He went through warm-up and individual drills Thursday before sitting out. He did not run full speed, but he did show an ability to plant and cut on routes.

“Everything will be good by the time we get out there Sunday,” Jackson said.

“Being in this league nine years, you have time to get out there and practice when you can,” said Jackson, who has caught nine passes for 142 yards in two games. “I’m proven in this league so [coach Jay Gruden] knows I’ll be ready. I’m in the game plan and I know everything I need to do… I’ll work that soreness out so I’ll be ready to go.”

Gruden said he’s not yet ready to declare Jackson in for Sunday’s game. There’s more he wants to see from him.

“He had a better day today,” Gruden said. “I didn’t see him running full blazing speed, but he’s running, which is a good sign. With a sprinter like that, he needs to be full go. Tomorrow we’ll give him a few shots to run deep and fast and see how he feels and we’ll go from there.”

  1. SCOTT mcCLOUGHAN fan says:

    Losing three in a row now means winning five in a row somewhere during the season.

    But this club hasn’t jelled yet by playing extended time on the field together.

    Look at the defense:

    HALL’s in his first year at starting FS.

    BRUTON’s in his first year as starter SS.

    CB NORMAN is new to the club.

    PHILLIPS doesn’t have the chops to be a slot corner over TOLER and HAS PROVED IT.

    COMPTON and FOSTER are not causing anyone to forget RILEY Jr.

    GOLSTON starting NT mistake, mistake, mistake….coaches. Move on. JENKINS for now.

    MURPHY back at OLB minus the weight.

    A lot of moving parts to begin a season. Will take a season for them to understand what they can do together.


    Pretty set once COUSINS clears his head of the 20 million burden.
