Washington wide receiver DeSean Jackson is questionable to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, The Washington Post's Mike Jones reports.

While Jackson was limited in practice Friday, head coach Jay Gruden said it was a step in a positive direction, according to the report.

Jackson, 27, sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during the first quarter of last Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He said earlier this week that he plans to play against the Eagles.

In his first season with Washington, Jackson has nine catches for 81 yards. He played the first six seasons of his career with the Eagles and amassed 356 catches, 6,117 yards and 39 total touchdowns.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III was also hurt against the Jaguars when he dislocated his ankle during the first quarter, and backup Kirk Cousins will start for Washington. Griffin will not be placed on injured reserve

Washington plays the Eagles at 1 p.m. in Philadelphia.
