Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson exited MetLife Stadium with a walking boot on his foot. He said he’s fine.
The walking boot suggested otherwise.
On Monday, coach Andy Reid said that Jackson has a bruised foot.
“It’s sore today,” Reid said, per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “But it’s not a Lisfranc [sprain] or one of those things. It got stepped on. It’s tender. He came in early this morning and got treatment, so we’ll see how he does.”
The 4-6 Eagles host the Patriots on Sunday, and the home team still has no margin for (further) error.
Jackson played well on Sunday, despite a post-play taunting penalty that under a strange quirk in the rules wiped out a 50-yard gain. As explained in Monday’s 10-pack, the call was the right application of a bad rule.
