DeSean Jackson’s back on his feet and ready to play

After sending a scare through the team last week, Washington wideout DeSean Jackson was back on his feet Monday, and ready to play.

Jackson returned to practice after spraining his ankle last week, and said he expected to play Monday against the Browns.

I felt good, man. Had a little sore, bruised ankle for the last couple days. So to be back in the midst of things, felt good,” Jackson said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

Jackson didn’t play in last week’s preseason opener against the Patriots, but caught a few touchdowns from quarterback Robert Griffin III during practice Monday, and said he was encouraged by his progress.

“I feel where we’re at now, we’re pretty ready to go into the season and do some great things,” he said.

Being healthy again is a good first step.

    Just needed some attention like he was getting in Philly.

    dJOKE.
    I thank you for miracle at the meadowlands. But you’re not a 12MILLION a year player, as you found out once on the street!
    Have fun at the dumpster fire skins and Danny boy… hey maybe you could become his besty, then you could get all the coaches fired like Rg3and13.

    Does it bother any other skins fan that this guy is wearing number 1 in practice, even though is number will be 11(I think) during the season? He HAS to be the center of attention. Everything this guy does screams its all about me. Hope I’m wrong.

    What’s the over/under for a taunting penalty or a flag for excessive celebration against Jackson when he scores a touchdown against the Eagles in Week 3? I’d say that the odds are pretty high on that.

    I believe he has now outplayed his contract with the tater skins.
    Time to write up a new contract with a hefty raise, or he will dog it on the field.
    You have been warned.

    One trick pony is what the Redskins needed. They have a great possession wr and now with Djax stretching the field and Reed up the middle. Throw in another one trick pony Morris and you got an explosive offense just waiting to explode.

    CHAMPIONSHIP!! HTTR

    The redskins will find out soon why the eagles didn’t want him :) Also, I find it hard to believe that Jay Gruden will be able to do what chip did with Desean…. Good luck with that little diva.

    Looks like RG3-13 has a new shiny toy to play with.

    Implosion is also a definite possibility. People always say the more weapons the better, but in this case I would disagree. RG3 isn’t a Peyton Manning type of QB to sit in the pocket and distribute the ball equally to all his targets. At best he’s a 2 read QB with the 3rd option being using his legs. At some point either Garcon, Jackson (most likely), and Jordan Reed will be complaining about not getting enough balls thrown their way. Hell, Andre Roberts is already ticked because he was signed expecting to be a #2.

    Are you kidding me? Because he is wearing a 1 in practice he wants to be the center of attention? Wow

  16. grumpyoleman says: Aug 12, 2014 10:58 AM

    I think he is going to have a good year with the Redskins in 2014.

    So wearing the number 1 in practice means you want to be the center of attention? You guys kill me with the hate, As much of a one trick pony he may or may not be, he will be helping out an offense that ranked 9th in the league behind guys (as you all call them) that are a flash in the pan with a gimpy knee, a suspect offensive line and a receiver that will never be a real number 1. You guys are comical

    Seattle is going to have trouble covering all our speedsters.

    I hope all this football doesn’t sideline his Rap Music career.

    Well, at least he’ll always have his gang member friends to support him.
