Redskins WR DeSean Jackson will play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, reports the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jackson initially sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder during the first quarter of last Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Sunday's game carries extra weight for the 27-year-old wideout. Jackson spent his first six years in Philadelphia, where he racked up 73 catches for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns.

Jackson was released by Philadelphia this past March, then signed with the Redskins in April to a three-year, $24 million contract. In his first season with Washington, he has brought in nine catches for 81 yards.
