Redskins WR DeSean Jackson ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Jets

Saturday October 17th, 2015

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, the team announced on Saturday. He did not make the trip with the team to New York.

Jackson sustained a hamstring injury during Washington’s 17–10 loss to Miami in Week 1. Jackson was reportedly going to miss three to four weeks due to the injury.

The wide receiver may have endured a setback in practice on Thursday. Head coach Jay Gruden told reporters that the Jackson “had an issue here and there” during drills.

The 28-year-old missed the entire preseason with a separated shoulder, but missed only game last season.

In 2014, Jackson’s first season with the Redskins after six years with the Eagles, he caught 56 passes for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns.

The Redskins are 2–3, one game behind the Giants and in a three-way tie for second place in the NFC East.
