Jackson is set to miss Sunday’s game against the Patriots, but McClure mentions that he’s likely to miss Week 5’s match up against the Jets as well. Atlanta has their bye the following weeks, it appears as though he won’t see the field until Week 7’s game against the Buccaneers.
“It’s short term,” said Smith regarding Jackson’s injury. “Don’t know if that’s two or three weeks.”
- Rapoport adds that Jackson’s injury is viewed as “week-to-week.“
Jackson, 30, signed a three-year contract worth $12 million that included $4 million guaranteed with the Falcons this offseason. He’s dealt with some injuries in recent years, but it’s bad time for the Falcons given that they’ve already lost a number of players on the defensive side of the ball.
We’ll have more on Jackson’s status moving forward as soon as the news is available.
