Report: DeSean Jackson out this Sunday

Bye weeks often give players a chance to recover from some of the aches and pains that accumulate over the course of a season, but it looks like Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will need more time before he’s ready to return to action.

According to multiple reports, Jackson will not play against the Vikings this weekend. Jackson hurt his shoulder against the Bengals in London two weeks ago and has not practiced yet this week. He had an MRI Thursday that didn’t show any structural damage, but the ongoing pain was enough reason for coach Jay Gruden to suggest Jackson could miss time.

“That’s something we’ll have to decide, whether or not to give him some rest and get fully recovered, fully healthy, or see if he can fight through it or not,” Gruden said, via Washington Post.

Jackson has 30 catches for 416 yards and a touchdown so far this season. Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder would be joined at receiver by Rashad Ross, Ryan Grant and Maurice Harris if Jackson is out of the lineup.

  1. DEE shawn has made an nfl career out of avoiding contact. and when he does get hit, he gets hurt.

    yrs ago in phila, before he got a long term deal, he got blown up over the middle by falcons’ dunta robinson. that permanently changed his style of play

    he is a legit deep threat. but avoids contact so won’t get the tough yard. and is notorious for disappearing in big games. if you need a win in dec or jan, DEE shawn is not your man

    remember last yr’s GB playoff gm, when he ran out of bounds right before the endzone ? that is classic DEE shawn.

  2. chrisk61 makes valid points and he is about to turn 30. Can still make plays (when healthy) but his contract is up at the end of the season and the Redskins has some young depth at this point. People will always hate on him (some deserved and some not so much) but the 5 ten 175 pound wide out/returner has ruined more than one Sunday/Monday for those same people.

    Now Rhodes will hold Crowder instead of Jackson…

    ÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷

    Probably not a good idea to rip an opposing team’s CB for penalties considering Josh Norman has 10 penalties this year while Rhodes only has 5.

    Where does it say he’s a Redskins fan?

  5. Sal,

    I never said Dizzy was a fan of the Redskins. I made reference to the two teams playing this weekend, the Redskins and the Vikings. Try to keep up.
