DeSean Jackson will play despite hamstring injury

If Eagles quarterback Mike Vick struggles today, he won’t be able to blame it in whole or in part on the absence of receiver DeSean Jackson.

The Eagles reportedly expect Jackson to play despite a hamstring injury, and a league source tells PFT that Jackson will indeed play.

The Eagles also expect receiver Jeremy Maclin to play.  He suffered a hip injury last week at Cleveland.

The injuries to Maclin and Jackson and guys like Riley Cooper (collarbone) had created speculation that Mardy Gilyard, who joined the roster this week, would be the No. 3 receiver against the Ravens.

    Too bad he’s going to have zero receptions. Eagles are a joke.

    a speed receiver with a bad hammy is not going to be effective. he is either not hurt at all or should be inactive

    Mardy Gilyard may still see some action. I don’t expect Maclin or Jackson to last the whole game or to be used on every down.
