Eagles Place DT Malik Jackson On IR, Waive TE Alex Ellis


The Philadelphia Eagles officially placed DT Malik Jackson on injured reserve Tuesday and waived TE Alex Ellis.

No surprise here, as reports from earlier in the day mentioned that Jackson was out for the season with a lisfranc injury.

Jackson, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $2,313,612 rookie contract before agreeing to a six-year, $85.5 million deal that included $42 million guaranteed with the Jaguars.

Jackson was set to make a base salary of $13 million in 2019 when the Jaguars released him. He signed with the Eagles on a three-year deal worth $30 million and is set to make base salaries of $1 million and $7.6 million the next two seasons. 

Jackson will finish the 2019 season with one tackle.
