DeSean Jackson expected to miss two weeks with abdominal injury
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is expected to miss two weeks because of an abdominal strain, ESPN reported Tuesday.
Jackson chosen against a single doctor’s recommendation of surgery, which would have kept him to the sidelines for around six weeks, according to the report.
The 32-year-old Jackson was injured from the first half of Sunday’s loss.
He didn’t make a grab in that game later snagging eight passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 in the Eagles’ victory over the Washington Redskins.
The Eagles brought back Jackson via trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March.
A second-round selection by Philadelphia in 2008, Jackson spent six years with the Eagles (2008-13), catching 356 moves for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns in 87 games.
After leaving last week’s match with a calf injury philadelphia wide receiver Alshon Jeffery may also miss Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.
