RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson has returned to full practice after missing several days with a sore left ankle.

Jackson took part in the regular team drills Monday. He hurt his ankle during a joint practice with the New England Patriots last week and missed the preseason opener on Thursday.

Both Jackson and coach Jay Gruden say they expect the three-time Pro Bowl receiver to play in next Monday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Said Gruden: ''I think now it's just a matter of letting it go for a whole practice. ... I think he'll be fine by Monday.''
