Sunday mornings are usually quiet, but we have a surprise in store for Week 10.
Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that DeSean Jackson was told he will be inactive Sunday against the Cardinals because he was late to a meeting this week.
Bowen notes that the Eagles do this as a matter of policy. Correll Buckhalter got the same punishment for the same offense a few years ago.
Still, it’s hard not to wonder if the Eagles are sending a message to their star receiver here. Jackson has struggled throughout his contract year.
UPDATE: Bowen updated his report to say Jackson wasn’t just late; he missed the meeting entirely. The team confirmed the report to Bowen.
