DeSean Jackson didn’t practice on Wednesday because of knee and ankle injuries. Coach Jay Gruden said that Jackson got hurt sometime in the third quarter of last Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys.
As you’d expect, Jackson’s status for this week’s game came up for discussion but an answer didn’t come. Gruden said during his press conference that he has no idea about whether Jackson will be able to play at this point in the week.
The team will practice twice more before setting injury designations for the game on Friday, but it would seem unlikely that Jackson will be on the field if he isn’t feeling well enough to work on Thursday or Friday. That would save the Giants from making any decision like the one the Redskins have to make about Josh Norman covering Beckham, although no one would likely be paying much mind to that call unless they went with Damon Harrison.
