DeSean Jackson‘s trainer, Gary Cablayan, said the Eagles’ receiver feels like he can move now after dealing with an abdomen injury for the past month.
“He’s feeling like he can move now, so it’s just trying to get back up to some faster speeds and getting his body ready,” said Cablayan, via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “It’s just giving him that confidence with me here. When you have that much history, there’s a comfort in what that person brings to the table, that knows your body.”
Cablayan mentioned that Jackson is “slowly progressing” from his injury and they are making sure he does not suffer a setback.
“Everything has to be progressed in a slow manner,” Cablayan said. “You just can’t go out there and jump right back into what we used to do. It’s a fine thing you have to go through, making sure that you’re doing enough, but not too much. Slowly progressing, but in a smart way.”
Cablayan confirmed that Jackson suffered a “small tear” but it is not considered a hernia.
“It’s a small tear, but it’s something that’s already healing, and he’s able to move at slower speeds.”
