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, 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.

    And so it begins…

    It begins. Next week he’ll need an extension.

    i wish he’d pull his jaw so he’d shut up.

    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.

    He is ALWAYS 1 hit away from being hurt for a long while, and I sure hope that hit comes from the Eagles defense.

    Sometimes plays like a #1, usually acts like #2

    Pierre is #1 until someone displaces him during the regular season. Broke Art Monks record last year.

    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)

    He has outplayed his current contract. He will be sitting until it is renegotiated.

    Had he been Percy Harvin, he would have missed half the season.

    Great move, skins

    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.

    Here you gooooo. You made your bed, now sleep in skins. Hahaha…

    Look at all the jealous fans out there that wish he was on their team HTTR NFC East champs !!!

    He’ll be a nice target for RG3 along with Roberts, but Garcon is still the Skins No. 1 receiver, period.

  17. distracted9 says: May 29, 2014 5:38 PM

    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?

    Can’t wait to see this dude shred defenses with RGIII’s canon delivering 60 yard bombs.

    “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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Washington’s top 4 receivers are all 6’0″ or shorter. That’s all you need to know.
