To no surprise, Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a concussion after taking a wicked first-half hit from Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson.
Per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, coach Andy Reid said after the game that Jackson indeed has a concussion.
It’s the second concussion Jackson has suffered in less than one year.
Last year, Jackson wasn’t bashful about expressing doubt regarding his ability to play a week after being hit by Redskins linebacker London Fletcher. As a result, Jackson missed Philly’s game against the Falcons last year, the same team that gave him the second concussion.
In the offseason, Jackson said that offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg gave the wideout a hard time for missing the game. “Our offensive coordinator, Marty Mornhinweg, said some things, trying to
question my toughness,” Jackson told Sporting News. “I was like, ‘Coach, I just got a concussion.
This [is] my brain. If it’s anything else, my shoulder, whatever, I’m
going to play.'”
This time around, Mornhinweg surely won’t be questioning Jackson’s toughness again. I mean, only a guy dumb enough to win the coin toss to start overtime and choose to kick off would be dumb enough to. . . .
