Report: Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) expected to miss three to four weeks
Monday September 14th, 2015

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is expected to miss three to four weeks with a strained hamstring, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jackson sustained the injured early during Washington's 17–10 loss to Miami on Sunday. While attempting to catch a Kirk Cousins deep ball, Jackson pulled up and limped off the field.

“Any time you lose a guy that runs a 4.25 40, it damages some of your play-action game,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said after the game. “The first one we threw to [Jackson], he had a step [on the corner] and I believe he would have caught it if he didn't pull his hammy.”

Jackson missed the entire preseason with a separated shoulder. He missed only game last season, his first with Washington.

In 2014, Jackson caught 56 passes for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns. Second-year receiver Ryan Grant is listed behind Jackson on the team's depth chart.
