Report: DeSean Jackson has "severe concussion"

Last year, a concussion caused Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson to miss one game.  This year, a concussion could put him out even longer.

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Jackson suffered a “severe concussion” after being his hard by Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson on Sunday.  Glazer also reports that Jackson has suffered memory loss.

His status moving forward isn’t known.  He won’t be able to play until he’s cleared by a team doctor and an independent neurological consultant.

UPDATE:  Peter King reports that Jackson likely won’t play again until November 7, when they face the Colts.

    Sorry to hear this. Love the game but easy to forget these guys are mere mortals until something like this happens. Speedy recovery.

    Disgustingly dirty hit. What the hell was Robinson thinking doing something like that?
    Ugh.

  4. birdgirl20 says: Oct 17, 2010 8:05 PM

    I was there and is was an ugly hit…sorry for both player’s injuries. Unfortunately it’s part of the game.

  5. JSpicoli says: Oct 17, 2010 8:06 PM

    Thoughts to him and Zach Follett.
    Bad weekend for Cal.

  6. Franchise says: Oct 17, 2010 8:06 PM

    Its never good when a player not only gets knocked out, but when you toss in memory loss, its REALLY not good.

  7. kravon says: Oct 17, 2010 8:10 PM

    Forget the game for a minute and pray the kids all right long term.

  10. Memp! says: Oct 17, 2010 8:15 PM

    That was a vicious hit. However, a LEGAL hit. I don’t like to see anyone get hurt but that was clearly within the boundries of the game. He led with his shoulder! If Jackson wasn’t flat on the ground, a flag would not have been thrown. Yes, players need to be protected but it’s ridiculous that every time there’s a serious hit on a wide receiver, there’s a flag and fine. Bullsh!t

  11. DirtyBird06 says: Oct 17, 2010 8:15 PM

    Dumb ass Kolb, as the QB, you don’t throw that ball! He had to have seen the corner closing!!! McCoy was wide open in the flat…
    Thank Kevin for that concussion DeSean. Speedy recovery, fella!

  12. phildo says: Oct 17, 2010 8:16 PM

    He’s out next week, then bye week

    Seriously???
    Robinson led with his shoulder pads and hit Jackson cleanly while he had the ball in his hands.
    If you don’t like watching grown men hit each other maybe you should stick with watching the Phillies game.

    Rodney Harrison says that the player needs to suspended to teach them a little. IF that is the case, it’s going to be 1 game. Personally, I think the hitter needs to be suspended as long as the hitee is out until he returns. Jackson gone for 3-4 weeks? that’s how long Robinson would be suspended for..

  17. Wrathchild says: Oct 17, 2010 8:20 PM

    He’ll be out for quite a while.
    Anyway, Florio, you were dead on about King Dunlap! Did you see how Abraham abused him just like you said he would? *eyeroll*
    Dunlap pwned Abraham out there.

  18. jack1818 says: Oct 17, 2010 8:22 PM

    Blatent intential hit. Intended to put him out of the game. $50,000 plus 1 year suspension called for.

  19. Chuck says: Oct 17, 2010 8:23 PM

    Play worthy of a suspension? I’m
    bet Goodell comes down hard on Robinson over that obvious cheap shot.

  20. Big J says: Oct 17, 2010 8:25 PM

    He took a hell of a shot. That’s the kind of shot that makes these guys suffer long after they stop playing football. The brain is not made to bounce around inside the skull like that.

  22. Sonofa says: Oct 17, 2010 8:29 PM

    Dunta Robinson (and any defender delivering an illegal hit) ought to be suspended for the duration of the injured player’s unavailability.
    Dungy and Harrison just touched on this. Fines will not change how millionaires play the game. Suspensions are the only way to change the culture.
    IMO, avoidable injuries like these lower the overall quality of the sport we love. NFL, please act accordingly.

  23. funi says: Oct 17, 2010 8:30 PM

    I guess karma will get you! Deshawna doing 2 stupid dances in endzone after scoring then he get knocked back into college! If he can’t play I hope he can put his education he got to get a job!

  24. Chicagojeff says: Oct 17, 2010 8:31 PM

    Suspended?? For a legal hit?? Take off your skirt man..

  25. winslow says: Oct 17, 2010 8:32 PM

    “Glazer also reports that Jackson has suffered memory loss.”
    This was conclusively established after Jackson told team doctors that to the best of his knowledge Ben Roethlisberger has never raped anyone. Apparently, Jackson suffered a concussive blow to the head that has rendered him incoherent. Unlike Steeler fans, however, he is expected to regain the ability to think clearly.

    ???Rodney Harrison was considered one of the dirtiest players when he played. Taking advice on this issue from him is like taking abstinence advice from Snooki!

  29. Zaggs says: Oct 17, 2010 8:45 PM

    It wasn’t a dirty hit. Robinson was trying to use his shoulder and Jackson ducked his head.

    ———————————–
    Eagles fans should expect nothing less after how they acted when Michael Irvin was motionless on the field and they cheered louder than any touchdown they had ever scored.
    Anyways, although I can’t stand the arrogant bum I pray for him and hope he is ok. I wish physical injury or worse on absolutely no one.
    PS-That was a clean hit. Robinson drove his shoulder right into Jackson’s chest. It’s unfortunate that the momentum of both players was so great and caused injury; however, there was nothing at all dirty about what Robinson did on the play. As was said before, it is getting ridiculous that every time someone gets hit pretty hard that a flag has to be thrown….. Unless you’re James Harrison of course…

  31. poet1958 says: Oct 17, 2010 8:52 PM

    im not an eagle or a falcon fan. it was a perfectly clean hit. if anyone did anything wrong it was Kolb who put his WR in a wide open defenseless position
    Eagle fans who are calling this dirty are either blind or biased. credit goes to DeSean Jackson in that he was totally focused on the ball. it was a terrifyingly hard but CLEAN hit.
    if anyone is to blame is was Kevin Kolb

    In all fairness, we as fans love to see the big hits… it’s what the game is all about. Every stadium is rocking after a big hit, the game is violent. There are very few fans of any nfl team that want to see a serious injury… we’re just so used to seeing these warriors jump up that we cheer the hit.
    When Follett went down and stayed down it felt like you could hear a pin drop at Giants stadium. Prayers to him that he fully recovers and to Jackson that he is able to have a full career. Brain and neck injuries are no joking matter.

  33. wvudirtybird says: Oct 17, 2010 8:52 PM

    Brian Dawkins made a living on the Eagles for many years making plays like that, and all the Eagles fans loved him. You hypocritical Eagles fans need to get your head out of your a$$ if you think that was a dirty play.

    The Robinson hit on Jackson was brutal. I think Robinson and James Harrison need to be suspended for 1 game for both of their dirty hits on receivers.

  36. Really? says: Oct 17, 2010 8:57 PM

    Are you people serious? That was dirty as hell. He hit a defenseless receiver under his chin with the crown of his helmet. He was flagged on the play and you can be 100% certain he’s going to get a huge fine… as deservedly so.
    No place in the game for that nonsense.

    LOL Philly fans are too damn funny.
    In their history they have (and are not limited to):
    Boo & throw snowballs at Santa Claus
    Pelt opposing teams fans with snow or anything else they can find.
    The only stadium in the entire league with a jail & judge in attendance at every game.
    Just this past year at a Phillies game, a Phillies fan intentionally threw up/puked on a another fans small daughter.
    Cheered Michael Irvin being removed on a body board.
    The above is your typical Philadelphia fan –
    Notice how they give a serial animal torturer & killer, that knowingly spread herpes to unsuspecting women standing ovations though, then say “stay classy”. It really is funny.

    “Memory loss”? Yeah, that’s bad.

  39. live2ride1642 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:05 PM

    All this talk of a dirty hit is ridiculous. What is the defender supposed to do? Cut at his knees or not make the tackle at all until he can verify that Jackson has identified him as a potential danger. Robinson led with his shoulder and did everything right. The end result is a product of the game of football. Don’t go across the middle if you don’t want to get hit hard.

  40. rdrdrs58 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:08 PM

    I was at the game today rooting on my Birds… That hit was SICK.
    That was a GREAT FOOTBALL HIT. Period. AND he wasn’t penalized for helmet to helmet contact.. he was penalized for hitting a defenseless receiver…
    This is football … a full contact sport played at a high speed and guess what? Hits like these happen.
    Dunta did his job and unfortunately, injuries resulted.
    While I love the hard hit.. that ferocious, bone jarring, snot bubble make your stomach ache hits… no one wants to see anyone seriously injured…
    Wishing both a full and quick recovery.

  41. live2ride1642 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:08 PM

    Why are we always blaming the defenders? I think the NFL should make it illegal to run crossing routes that endanger the receiver. Or fine the QB and Head Coach for putting his receiver in a dangerous position. You know… all in the name of player safety.
    Crazy? yeah it is. But I see that as just as crazy as calling Robinson’s play a dirty hit.

  42. bofarr says: Oct 17, 2010 9:08 PM

    Not a dirty hit; DeSean had the ball, both feet on the ground and his head was turned towards Dunta. In the replay you can see Robinson never launched himself and led with his shoulder, not the crown of his helmet. IMHO it shouldn’t have been a penalty. What was Dunta supposed to do? Tag him? Pull his flags? It’s a brutal sport played by the fastest, best physical specimens on the planet and unfortunately players sometimes get hurt as a result.

    Compared to James Harrison, Robinson’s hit was legal. Harrison can whine about it’s a game all he wants, but if takes a few shots to the knee the next time Cleveland plays Pittsburgh, he better not bitch one ounce.
    Kolb should really think the next time about hanging his receiver out to dry.
    Memory loss = No Jackson next week at Tennessee.

  45. wvudirtybird says: Oct 17, 2010 9:14 PM

    Why don’t they just have them wear flags and turn the NFL into flag football. Maybe Dunta should have just let Jackson pick up the first down, in fact just let him score the TD.

  46. BuddyRyan1 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:17 PM

    Probably at least $50,000 fine and a suspension for the play. Robinson lead with his helmet in a helmet to helmet collision into a defenseless receiver. Goodell will come down harshly to hopefully deter garbage play like that in the future.

  47. mike_311 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:18 PM

    in defense of the Giants fans, they cheered the hit and not the aftermath.
    Eagles fans for years cheered Dawkins crush people left and right and D. Jackson gets his mind separated from his brain in a brutal hit so yeah cheered it i just hope he plays the NY game so i can cheer again when he get creamed.

    ______________________________
    Well, I’m an Eagles fan, and while I don’t think it was a dirty hit, I do think the flag was justified. Let me explain, because I know that doesn’t make sense at first glance. In my opinion, a dirty hit is an intentional cheap shot. That wasn’t the case here. Robinson led with his shoulder which is legal. He hit a little too high, however, and the momentum of the hit made their helmets collide. So, while he may not have intended to initiate a helmet to helmet hit, it did happen. So, not a dirty hit, but still an appropriate penalty.

  50. tooz56 says: Oct 17, 2010 9:26 PM

    I dont think it was a dirty hit, but he did lead with his helmet and is lucky to be alive. Does anyone know what type of helmet Jackson wears ? I’m just wondering if it is one of the newer high tech helmets or not.

  51. smithopher says: Oct 17, 2010 9:32 PM

    It wasn’t a dirty hit… It was a nasty hit, yeah… but not dirty. Robinson came in and made the play, stopped him there. Unfortunate that type of thing happened to Jackson, but QB’s need to know not to set up their #1 WR to get lit up over the middle.

    what game were you watching? several eagles fans to their credit have already said Robinson did no wrong.
    neither did DeSean. he was totally focused on making the catch as any great receiver should. as i said before Kolb put him in that position, what happened was two players doing exactly what they should do and the speed of the game causing a terrifying collision
    period nothing dirty about it

    I dont think it was a dirty hit, but he did lead with his helmet and is lucky to be alive. Does anyone know what type of helmet Jackson wears ? I’m just wondering if it is one of the newer high tech helmets or not. OK just looked at the replay of the hit. Jackson wears one of the older type of helmet designs. Why in the world, if you have had a concussion ever in the past, wouldn’t you wear one of the newer designed helmets? And it still looks like a clean hit, ball in Jackson’s hands, and he gets hit mostly in his right shoulder. Maybe the equipment should be looked at again. Better shoulder pads, keep working on better designed helmets, improve mouth pieces. Those hits are what gets a lot of people to watch this game….

    Here, watch the replay again. Crown of helmet to the shoulder while the ball was still in Jackson’s hands. How is he defenseless ?? I guess next year the WRs and QBs will just wear flags so they don’t get touched. I hope Jackson is OK and recovers, AND puts on a real helmet ! And Robinson needs tackling lessons, he could have broke his neck.
    And you all have to remember how FAST as this happens on the field.

    That was a big hit, but it DEFINITELY was NOT legal. He led with his helmet and hit the WR helmet to helmet. He wouldn’t have been flagged otherwise. He’ll be fined big time and should be suspended. There’s a 20-yr kid from Rutgers laying in a hospital in NJ paralyzed from the neck down for life thanks to a “great” hit this weekend. The DB could have blasted him in the chest leading with his shoulder pad to the same effect. Just as the 2 DBs cracked Mike Vick at the goal-line against the Skins in Philly 2 weeks ago. You can knock the crap out of someone without endangering both their lives.

  57. leather_face_jones says: Oct 17, 2010 10:08 PM

    Not an Eagles, but how can you watch a hit like that and think how legal and clean it is? At some point someone will end up dead on the field or quadriplegic like the Rutgers DT from Saturday night. Come on.

  59. slutnuts says: Oct 17, 2010 10:13 PM

    clearly different people have different views on this hit, but imo it is legal. unfortunate but legal. i want to know what classifies jackson as being a “defenseless receiver” in this case but every other receiver isnt defenseless when they are carrying the ball and not looking at where the tackler came from.

  60. doe22us says: Oct 17, 2010 10:14 PM

    Jackson will be back in three weeks and torch any secondary in the league the falcons couldnt contain him so they laid that illegal hit.. very dirty hit no place for that. And for all you fat mofo’s cheering the injury its quite clear you never played sports of any kind. Go sit behind your tv and stuff a pizza up your pie hole….

    Annapolis, MD – A 25-year-old man was killed Saturday afternoon during a game of football at Broadneck Highschool in Annapolis according to a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.
    According to the spokesman, the victim was playing football when he was hit on the chin by another player’s helmet knocking him to the ground.
    The victim’s helmet came off and he lost consciousness right after the contact.
    Emergency personnel who were at the game began to try and revive him immediately.
    The victim was on the way to the Anne Arundel Medical Center when he stopped breathing and died.
    The victim’s identity is not being released yet while officials notify his family.
    No other information is available at this time.

    Here is the video. Watch at around 40 seconds. At that angle it looks like he led and hit him with mostly his right shoulder.
    Watch again at around 48 seconds in… that angle makes it seem like he definitely led with his head. I think that is why there is a discrepancy with people. From the second replay it seems like he lead with his head or he is a complete ‘tard who doesn’t know how to tackle properly. It seems kind of unlikely he doesn’t being an NFL player. He is lucky he didn’t break his own neck like someone else mentioned above.
    Just replay the 48 second mark a few times. It makes it hard to argue against the dirtiness of the hit.

    look at the replay it wasnt a helmet to helmet hit. its clearly helmet to shoulder and Jackson while trying to secure the ball was not looking as he was running into the path of Robinson
    take off your Eagle fan glasses and watch the actual play. both players were down after the play because, neither were expecting it, which wouldnt be the case if Robinson were leading with his helmet. Jackson came into Robinsons path because he was looking at the ball as he was trying to secure it.
    CLEARLY NOT A DIRTY HIT no matter how hard some Eagles fans are trying to make it look. it makes me respect the eagle fans who are honest here, and wonder about the ethics of the others

  68. Route36West says: Oct 18, 2010 1:38 AM

    You make it sound like hes gonna miss a bunch of time when in truth its only 1 game. They play the Titans on the 24th, have a bye on the 31st, and play the Colts on the 7th. Even though it was a horrible injury it honestly couldn’t have happened at a better time.
    The Eagles are beat up and its a good time for a bye week. Latetly they have had early bye weeks and it was really just wasted. I was happy to hear that the bye was later in the season this year. Obviously with good reason because the Eagles really need one right now.

  69. spaz says: Oct 18, 2010 2:51 AM

    okay, for clarification…
    as stated by Rich McKay (McKay is also the co-chairman of the NFL competition committee), “a defensive player is prohibited from launching into him in a way that causes the defensive player’s helmet, face mask, shoulder or forearm to forcibly strike the receiver’s head.”
    This was definitely not helmet to helmet contact which everyone seems to be arguing about, but it does violate the rules for hitting a defenseless player.
    And for the record, Rich McKay is the current owner of the Falcons… I would expect him to want to talk to Robinson personally :)
    P.S. I am an eagles fan too

  70. joetoronto says: Oct 18, 2010 6:52 AM

    No way this was a dirty hit, no way at all.

    Nice reporting by Peter King, master of the obvious. Their bye is after the next game, so OF COURSE the earliest Jackson would be back is the Colts game. Go have anothe latte and pat yourself on the back for another job well done Pete.
    Mike, I know you have to suck up to NBC, but do you really have to swallow by pimping Peter King?

    Now THAT was a hit. A clean hit. Helmet my eye – he hit him with his arm and shoulder. Wish Green Bay had a safety with that kind of ability. Ronnie Lott eat your heart out.

    Here’s an idea: To all of the complainers about the hit – let’s just put them all in dresses and makeup. It’s football. If you don’t like it, then just watch ice skating. PLEASE.

    Those who said he lead with his shoulder pads need to go to Youtube and take a look again.
    You could of argued the whole defenseless receiver debate, but this hit wasn’t about that. Robinson drops his helmet at the last second and initiates the contact with the top of his helmet (you learn in PeeWee Football to look at what you are hitting). When a player initiates contact with the top of his helmet, that is an illegal play.
    Robinson is actually lucky that he did not end up like the Rutgers player who initiated contact with the top of his helmet.

    WonderlicMyBallz, entertaining and thorough post! I think you you covered nearly every Urban Legend about the Eagles.
    Since everything you read on the internet is true, don’t you have an email to send to everyone in your address book so Microsoft can pay you a $25 reward per address? Maybe a King somewhere in Uganda left you a few million to claim also?
    Don’t believe everything you read, simpleton.
    Hoping DeSean Jackson recovers and is back to his old self quickly. That was a horrible hit. Legal, but still horrible to see.

    As it says in NFL John Madden Career mode injury report
    DeSean Jackson – Concussion (CAREER)

    Everything that goes on in Philly in regards to Philly fan behavior is a myth or urban legend huh? Philly fans are undeservedly vilified; they do none of the things they are so well known for. They are just being picked on…As stated, Philly fans are sooo funny
    Truth is tough to take WTF.
    As you know from being a part of that culture, they are not “urban legends” – every bit of what was written was true. As far as simpletons go, you Philly fans have every fan in the nation beat in that arena. Maybe if you guys knew how to act, the true stories of your behavior wouldn’t be so well known.
    As with all “professional victims” WTF, we know you are all being singled out with myths & untruths —LOL

    @mike,
    Eagles fans for years cheered Dawkins crush people left and right and D. Jackson gets his mind separated from his brain in a brutal hit so yeah cheered it i just hope he plays the NY game so i can cheer again when he get creamed.
    Be careful what you wish for. Hes still running past cc brown and Webster and all those other swiss cheese corners you have. He single handedly DESTROYED you’re wee-men last year

    clean hit girls…was awesome. You know,violent sports invite pain.Boxing , MMA are filled with pain and suffering.Football to a lesser extent but still is smashing at high speeds. Deal with the consequences…got to pay to play sometimes,don’t forget the pay is good
