Eagles Placing WR DeSean Jackson On Injured Reserve


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that an MRI confirmed that Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is out indefinitely with an ankle injury and will be placed on injured reserve.

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.
