Jackson hauled in five receptions for 35 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Lions.
The veteran was dealing with shoulder issues all week causing him to miss practice Wednesday or Thursday. Jackson has only found the end zone once this season in Week 3's win over the Giants and hasn't had a game with over five receptions since Week 1. With Jordan Reed still questionable due to concussion issues, the wideout could see increased targets this week against the Bengals.

Jackson (shoulder) is active for Sunday's Week 7 tilt versus the Lions.
The veteran speedster will thus take the field in a favorable matchup against a beatable Lions secondary after turning in a limited practice on Friday, his only session of the week. Jackson's presence is particularly important given Jordan Reed's (concussion) lack of availability for a second consecutive week.

Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Detroit.
With TE Jordan Reed (concussion) already ruled out, Washington's passing attack would be rather thin if Jackson weren't able to play. The speedy wideout does seem to be trending in the right direction, returning to practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, according to Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post. Head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that he thinks Jackson will be able to play, Brian McNally of 106.7 The FAN reports.

Jackson (shoulder) didn't practice Thursday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
A sore shoulder has wiped away all of Jackson's potential practice reps this week, but the Redskins are hopeful that the wide receiver will be available for Sunday's game at Detroit. The release of Friday's injury report should shed light on his situation.

Jackson was unable to practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.
Jackson has already played through knee and ankle injuries this season, but the extent of the current shoulder concern is unknown at this time. If he fails to practice Thursday and Friday, the Redskins' leading receiver will likely be handed a questionable designation for Sunday's game in Detroit. Only time will tell whether his availability is clarified by the end of the week.

Jackson caught just four of nine targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.
Jackson was unable to secure over half the balls thrown his way versus his former team, and was held in check outside of a 35-yard gain during a two-minute drill that led to a touchdown just before the half. Jackson has just 95 receiving yards combined over his last three games despite being targeted 18 times, and he will need to establish a stronger rapport with Kick Cousins if he is to take advantage of a favorable matchup versus a beatable Lions secondary in Week 7.

Jackson recored three receptions for 35 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Ravens.
Jackson had one big 27-yard reception that moved Washington out of their own red zone and into Ravens territory early in the fourth quarter. Besides that catch, the No. 1 wideout remained relatively quiet, as he has now recorded only four receptions for 40 yards total the past two games. He'll look to return to fantasy relevancy this Sunday against the Eagles, who currently boast the sixth best pass defense in the league.

Jackson caught one of two targets for just five yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.
Jackson drew attention to himself with some personalized cleats in the pregame, but didn't generate much buzz with his play against top Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Quarterback Kirk Cousins didn't look the speedster's way much on the outside, preferring to work over the middle to tight end Jordan Reed. This was an incredibly disappointing effort given Cleveland's inability to limit opposing receivers heading into this one.

Jackson (knee/ankle) was a full practice participant Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Cleveland, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.
This backs up Thursday's statement from head coach Jay Gruden, who said only a late-week setback could prevent Jackson from playing in Sunday's game. Meanwhile, Browns CB Joe Haden (groin) may be absent or limited, which would would increase the appeal of an already-excellent matchup.

Jackson (knee/ankle) was limited at Thursday's practice. Afterward, head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will be "ready to go" Sunday against the Browns, barring a setback.
Jackson followed up no practice Wednesday with individual drills (at the very least) one day later, so he appears to be trending in the right direction. Ultimately, Friday's injury report will forecast his Week 4 availability, but the big-play receiver would be sorely missed Sunday from a corps that expects to be without rookie Josh Doctson (Achilles) for multiple games.
