DeSean Jackson WR WAS 12 Days1 Comment
Jackson caught two passes for 34 yards on four targets in Monday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jackson was relatively successful in his first game in a Washington uniform, as he was able to catch a few balls despite going up against Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden. The latter did get the best of Jackson at one point, however, as he jumped a route to earn the interception. Quarterback Robert Griffin looked Jackson's way more than any other receiver Monday, which surely bodes well for his 2014 fantasy outlook. The duo will have two more exhibition games to work on their timing and chemistry.

Jackson (ankle), who missed the Redskins' preseason opener, said he that will play in next Monday'sexhibition game against the Browns, ESPN.com reports.
Supporting that notion is that Jackson, who had been dealing with an ankle issue, participated in full-team work Monday after being limited to individual drills both Saturday and Sunday. "I felt good," he said. "Had a little sore, bruised ankle for the last couple days. So good to be back in the midst of things." Jackson is in line to start opposite Pierre Garcon in what has the potential to be a dynamic passing attack in Washington, supported by fellow wideout newcomer Andre Roberts and promising tight end Jordan Reed.

Jackson (ankle) took part in individual drills during Saturday's practice, the Washington Post reports.
Jackson sat out Thursday's preseason opener, but his return to the field Saturday, albeit in a limited fashion, bodes well for his chance of suiting up for the team's Aug. 18 exhibition tilt against the Browns.

Jackson, who tweaked his ankle at Wednesday's practice, won't play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, NFL.com's Albert Breer reports.

Jackson was forced to leave early from Wednesday's practice after tweaking his ankle during 11-on-11 work, NFL.com reports.
Jackson's ankle injury came during very light scrimmage work and he spent the remainder of Wednesday's practice icing the ailment on the Redskins' sideline. With Washington's preseason opener scheduled for Thursday, it's unclear if Jackson will be able to suit up, although his status should be updated later Wednesday. As Pierre Garcon (hamstring) also nurses a minor injury, it's possible the Redskins could be without their top two wideouts to begin the exhibition season.

DeSean Jackson averaged 3.85 catches for 67.3 yards and 0.32 touchdowns per game on a 52.2 percent catch rate in five years under Andy Reid.
In one year with Chip Kelly (last season), Jackson's numbers surged to 5.12 catches for 83.2 yards and 0.56 touchdowns on a 65.0 catch rate. He also stayed completely healthy for the first time since 2008. Now out of the Kelly offense again and sharing No. 1 wideout duties with Pierre Garcon, there's reason to think that career-best season was an outlier.

Coach Chip Kelly says the Eagles received "no offers" for DeSean Jackson before his release.
Kelly also insisted D-Jax's release was for football reasons. "We just wanted to go in a different direction," Kelly said. "It had nothing to do with any article." That, of course, is in reference to Jackson's supposed "gang ties." If the Eagles truly received "no offers" for their No. 1 receiver, it was because of his salary, not any off-the-field scuttlebutt.
