DeSean Jackson will play today

On Friday, Eagles coach Andy Reid said that receiver DeSean Jackson will play three weeks after suffering a severe concussion, barring a setback.

There have been no setbacks.

Per a league source, Jackson will play today when the Eagles host the Colts at 4:15 p.m. ET.

Jackson will be playing with a new helmet, aimed at better protecting him against concussions.  He also could be getting a new contract.

It remains to be seen whether Jackson will return punts on Sunday.  Reid said Friday that Jackson has been practicing in that capacity.
