Malik Jackson suffered “significant” injury on Sunday

Eagles defensive tackle Malik Jackson was in a walking boot after being carted off during Sunday’s win over Washington and it will be some time before he’s back in the lineup.

Head coach Doug Pederson said on Monday that Jackson suffered a “significant” injury that will keep him out of action for some time. Pederson added that Jackson will undergo further testing to determine how much time he will miss as a result.

Pederson did not rule out the possibility that it could be a season-ending injury, so it seems like there’s a good chance that Jackson will be headed to injured reserve.

Jackson signed with the Eagles after being released by the Jaguars this offseason. He played 34 snaps before being injured and was credited with one tackle.

  1. Tim Jernigan is a better player than Malik Jackson.
    I wonder if the timing of Jackson’s injury and Jernigan’s entry into the game had anything to do with the Eagles’ defense playing much better in the 2nd half.

    Well That is not going to help……Howie, lets go get Chris back
    To play D-tackle? And I’m ok with jernigan starting but the depth behind them is now thin.

  3. I like Jernigan but our warm fuzzy memories of him as a part of the SB team do not mean he’s a better DT than Malik Jackson.

    And no, Chris Long, an edge rusher, is not a suitable replacement.

    Hope they find somebody, though. They went thin at DT because they thought that Cox, Jackson, Jernigan and Ridgeway would be rock solid. Now they’re down to three.

  4. I remember hearing treyvon Hester went to Washington. Is he on their practice squad? I know they’re loaded at d-tackle so hopefully he didn’t make the 53 and we can snatch him up off of their practice squad. Perfect scenario we will trade for a beast DT but that’s probably not gonna happen at this point.
