Redskins WR DeSean Jackson Likely Out This Week & Next With Shoulder Injury

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is out for today’s game against the Vikings with a rotator cuff injury and it’s likely he misses next week’s game too.I’m told. Source on his shoulder: “Not good.”

A source tells Rapoport that Jackson’s shoulder injury is “not good.”

Earlier in the week, Jason Cole of B/R reported that it’s a “50-50 situation” whether the Redskins will keep Jackson beyond this year.

Cole mentions that the belief is that Jackson is injury prone, considering that he’s yet to play a full season since joining the Redskins a few years ago and has only played two full seasons in his entire career.

There has been some question as to whether the Redskins will keep either Jackson or Pierre Garcon next year, especially after they used a first-round pick on Josh Doctson this year.

Jackson, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2008. He’s currently in the final year of his three-year, $24 million contract that included $16 million guaranteed.

Jackson stands to make a base salary of $3.75 million for the 2016 season before testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent next year.

In 2016, Jackson has appeared in eight games for the Redskins and caught 30 passes for 416 yards receiving and one touchdown.
