DeSean Jackson Expected To Miss 3-4 Weeks With “Fairly Significant” Hamstring Strain

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Redskins WR DeSean Jackson has a “fairly significant” hamstring strain, and is likely to miss “at least” a game or two and possibly more.

  • ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms the hamstring strain and adds that Jackson is likely out three to four weeks.

Jackson suffered the injury during the first quarter of the Redskins’ Week 1 loss to the Dolphins, and wound up missing the remainder of the game.

While Jackson is out of the lineup, Washington is likely to turn to Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant opposite to Pierre Garcon.

Jackson, 28, has two years remaining on his  three-year, $24 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed. He stands to make a base salary of $3.75 million this season and another $3.75 million next year.

We’ll have more updates regarding Jackson’s timetable as the news is available.
