Jackson (shoulder) caught one pass for nine yards on three targets in Thursday's 45-14 loss to the Giants.
No Washington player got more than six targets, and the team's wide receivers combined for just four receptions. Even while trying to erase a deficit, Kirk Cousins had 15 of his 19 completions go to either tight ends or running backs, with another four passes falling into the hands of defenders. It was a complete 180 from the last two weeks, when Cousins piled up 677 passing yards and five touchdowns against the Jaguars and Eagles. Already known for his hit-or-miss nature, Jackson is off to a slow start in Washington, with a 15-207-1 receiving line through four games, despite going for 5-117-1 last week. Next week brings a tricky home game against the Seahawks.

Jackson (shoulder) is active for Thursday's game against the Giants, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
For a second outing in a row, Jackson will tough out the AC sprain in his left shoulder, as he teams with Pierre Garcon to form a fearsome receiving duo for quarterback Kirk Cousins to consider. With a juicy matchup on tap -- the Giants yield a robust 15.8 YPC to opposing wide receivers -- Jackson is a decent bet to post a friendly line.

Jackson (shoulder) is expected to take the field Thursday against the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Jackson brushed off the AC sprain in his left shoulder in Week 3, contributing five receptions (on 11 targets) for 117 yards and his first touchdown in Philadelphia. He appears poised to do so again, but the release of Washington's inactive list will reveal, one way or the other, whether the wideout is available.

Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Giants.
With a divisional tilt on tap, Jackson is likely more apt to play through the AC joint sprain in his left shoulder, which didn't stop him from racking up 117 yards and a touchdown on five receptions this past Sunday. In any case, check on his status prior to Thursday's 8:25 PM ET kickoff to ensure his availability.

Jackson (shoulder) was a limited participant during Tuesday's practice, Newsday reports.
Jackson played through a sprained AC joint in his shoulder last Sunday, when he caught five passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. With the Redskins already nearing Thursday's game against the Giants, it's little surprise that Jackson isn't being fully exerted during practice this week. However, judging by the success of his last appearance, as well as the fact that Thursday is another divisional contest, Jackson's current questionable status is likely closer to probable than doubtful.

Jackson (shoulder) would have been limited in practice Monday, if Washington had held drills, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
In his return to Philadelphia on Sunday, Jackson fended off the sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, notching an 81-yard touchdown reception en route to a five-catch, 117-yard performance. With a short week on tap, his three days of prep will primarily include treatment on the shoulder, according to the Washington Post. As a result, limited practice participation and questionable status could characterize his week heading into Thursday's game versus the Giants.

Jackson (shoulder) had five catches on 11 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles.
Jackson was having a decent game against his old team until he snagged an 81-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to tie the game at 27 in the third quarter. He was questionable coming into the game with a shoulder injury that kept him limited in practice this week, but Jackson was adamant that he would not miss the game against his former team that cut him this past offseason despite posting career-highs in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns last year. Unfortunately for Jackson, the Redskins play the Giants this Thursday, giving him only a few days to get his shoulder strong enough to play again.

Jackson (shoulder) is active Sunday in Philadelphia, Jeff Darlington of NFL Network reports.
Considering his Week 3 availability came down to a game-time call, Jackson is an iffy proposition to produce. However, opponents of his former squad have racked up 49 wide receiver targets through two games, good for sixth-most in the NFL.

Jackson will test his shoulder out in advance of Sunday's game against the Eagles, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
While Jackson wants to play, the report relays that his shoulder is still an issue, with his Week 3 status thus apparently boiling down to a game-time decision as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches.

After being limited in practice Friday, Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Though coach Jay Gruden noted after practice Friday that Jackson "did good today," he acknowledged that the wideout was "very limited." The report adds that the team plans to evaluate Jackson once again Saturday. In any case, while the wideout's Week 3 status is uncertain, the team kicks off at 1:00 ET on Sunday, so Jackson's availability will be clarified one way or another in advance of the first wave of games this weekend.
