DeSean Jackson says he’s fine after hamstring pull

On the third day of OTAs in Washington, newly-arrived receiver DeSean Jackson injured his leg.

Via CSNWashington.com, Jackson says he’s fine.

It’s just a little tight,” Jackson said regarding a hamstring he appeared to tweak while running a deep route. “It’s not no big issue.”

Coach Jay Gruden was even less chatty, calling the injury a slight pull and saying “that happens to receivers.”

Jackson reportedly was making a good impression in the helmets-and-no-pads session.  It won’t matter until the real games begin, and Jackson wants to prove that the Eagles erred badly by treating the guy who’s wearing No. 1 in practice like something other than No. 1.

  1. Jackson is great in certain packages but I don’t care what you say he’s not a no.1.. He will never be an elite reciever.. He will be that little speedster that takes the top off of bad Ds.. He wont make the big catches, won’t go up and fight for the ball, won’t go over the middle, won’t put a team on his back to win a game.. So why pay him like one? I will miss him returning punts but that’s about it.

  2. Good thing he is the number two on the field then. Paid like a one, but going to be used as a two.

    My predictions: 50 rec, 820 yards, and 6 tds (probably less)

  3. Jackson is always one of the top 100 players in the NFL. A top 3 percenter at any position. The haters will always disparage his immense talent. America’s sports fans love their athletes to be humble and gracious. Flambouyant personalities are discouraged in our sports culture and that turns into childish hate for them in some circles.

    Jackson is a good football player. Period. The eagles gave him away for nothing. You can’t justify that when your team has never won a Super Bowl.

  4. I can deal with the flamboyant diva in a reciever if you produce.. I loved T.O. Jackson is no T.O.. not even a Fred Ex. He did have nice numbers last year but against who? He padded stats against absolute garbage. He didn’t even have a catch in the play off game verses New Orleans until their starting CB left hurt.. sure he abused their back up but who wouldnt?

  5. “It’s just a little tight,” Jackson said regarding a hamstring he appeared to tweak while running a deep route. “It’s not no big issue.”

    So, it is a big issue?

  6. It’s probably because he hasn’t been working out in the offseason. He’s like Vick early in his career, gets by on talent with little preparation. In the end his lack of discipline and commitment to his craft is why Chip released him.

  7. MeSean at one seventy is due to crumble. Likes to party hard offseason. Little or no preparation or physical care. There’s not a speed receiver who can afford hamstring issues.

    First thing Jackson did after signing was to go out with a teammate and one of the current hundreds of thousand want’a be D. C. Rappers to learn the clubs.

    Could have should have stayed home. IMO.

  8. It’s no big deal Gary Clark had hammy issues his whole career but come game day he was good to go and his hammy issues were forgotten.
