DeSean Jackson sits out for Redskins vs. Rams

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) The Washington Redskins are without downfield threat DeSean Jackson for their game against the St. Louis Rams.

Jackson is listed as inactive for Sunday's game because of a bruised left shin after not practicing all week. He leads the Redskins with 942 yards receiving and tops the NFL at 20 yards per catch.

The Redskins are also without safety Brandon Meriweather and inside linebacker Keenan Robinson. Meriweather has a sprained big toe, and Robinson has a sprained MCL in his left knee.

Defensive lineman Kedric Golston is out with foot and back injuries, while cornerback Chase Minnifield was placed on injured reserve after suffering a concussion last week.
