Report: Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) likely out vs. Bucs

Wednesday October 21st, 2015

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will likely miss his team’s Week 7 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, reports ESPN’s Britt McHenry.

Jackson sustained a hamstring injury during Washington’s 17–10 loss to Miami in Week 1. The three-time Pro Bowler was originally expected to miss just three to four weeks with the injury, but he has not played since Week 1.

Jackson, who sat out the entire preseason with a separated shoulder, endured a setback in practice last week. Head coach Jay Gruden told reporters that Jackson “had an issue here and there” with his hamstring during drills.

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 (2–4) will go on the road to face the Buccaneers (2–3) on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
