Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson said last week that he likely wouldn’t play against the Falcons, after suffering a concussion against the Redskins.
And he didn’t.
This time around, Jackson says that he will play on Sunday against the Giants.
Jackson made the disclosure Monday, on ESPN 950 in Philadelphia.
He added that he’s not sure whether he’ll practice Wednesday, and Jackson claimed that he lost consciousness “briefly” when he was hit by Redskins linebacker London Fletcher nine days ago.
In the video of the play, Jackson never stops moving, so it’s possible that he merely has a small gap in his memory of the events, due to the concussion.
On Monday, coach Andy Reid said that Jackson has been “doing well as far as his headaches and all that goes.”
Though the Eagles were able to roll the Falcons without Jackson, they’ll need him if they hope to knock off the Giants on Sunday night in the Meadowlands.
If Philly wins, they will have swept the Giants, who have swept the Cowboys, who can sweep with Eagles with a win at home in Week 17.
