Rapoport does, however, say that Jackson has a chance to return later on this season.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson told reporters that Jackson will miss “significant time,” per Martin Frank.
Adam Caplan wouldn’t be surprised if Jackson misses 6-8 weeks.
It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list after just three games.
Jackson, 33, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2008. He spent six years with the Eagles before signing a three-year, $24 million contract with the Redskins back in 2014.
After three years with the Redskins, Jackson once again departed in free agency and agreed to a three-year, $35 million contract that includes $20 million guaranteed with the Buccaneers. He was set to make a base salary of $10 million for the 2019 season when the Buccaneers later traded him to the Eagles last year.
From there, Jackson signed a new three-year, $27 million deal with Philadelphia.
In 2020, Jackson has appeared in four games for the Eagles and caught 13 passes for 155 yards receiving to go along with 12 yards rushing.
