DeSean Jackson WR WAS 15 Hrs
Jackson (shoulder) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Washington reports.
Jackson emerged from Week 2 with a mild sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder, so his absence isn't much of a surprise. Nevertheless, owners should keep a close eye on his status as the week goes on, despite his contention that he doesn't "plan on missing" his return to Philadelphia on Sunday, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

Jackson -- who is dealing with a mild sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder -- indicated that he doesn't plan on missing Sunday's game against the Eagles, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
We'll track Jackson's status as the week rolls along, but for now it appears as though he would have to suffer a setback in order to sit out this weekend's contest. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Coach Jay Gruden indicated Monday that Jackson is dealing with a mild sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder, the Washington Post reports. "He'll be day-to-day," Gruden noted. "Depending on if he can play with the pain, he'll be good to go for Sunday. But we'll have a better idea Thursday or Friday where he is."
In any case, though he will probably be limited at practice this week, it looks like Jackson has a chance to play in Sunday's game at Philadelphia, a contest in which Washington will turn to Kirk Cousins at QB, with Robert Griffin out with a dislocated left ankle.

Jackson, who suffered an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder Sunday, is considered day-to-day, ESPN.com reports.
We'd expect Jackson to be limited at practice this week, but it appears as though the wideout avoided a serious injury Sunday, though at this stage his status for Week 3's game against his former team, the Eagles, has yet to be determined.

Jackson, who left Sunday's game in the first half and did not return, said afterward that the pain in his shoulder has lessened, adding that he considers himself day-to-day, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Jackson's postgame optimism is a good sign, but it doesn't change the fact that he failed to return to the game. His absence created extra opportunities for Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant, the latter of whom surprisingly caught five passes for 57 yards on eight targets. Jackson will almost certainly be on the injury report leading up to next Sunday's game in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, Redskins QB Robert Griffin suffered a dislocated ankle Sunday, with the injury likely to result in a multi-week absence. Luckily for both Washington fans and Jackson's fantasy owners, Kirk Cousins filled in more than capably.

Jackson (shoulder) will not return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Jackson suffered a shoulder injury during the first half of Sunday's game and will finish with only one catch for 19 yards against the Jaguars. At the moment, the extent of Jackson's shoulder issue is unknown, but Andre Roberts will fill his No. 2 wideout role in Washington's offense for at least the remainder of Sunday's contest.

Jackson suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's game against the Jaguars and is listed as questionable to return.
Jackson caught one pass for 19 yards prior to exiting Sunday's game. At the moment, it's unclear if Jackson will be able to return. Until further notice, expect Andre Roberts to assume the Redskins' No. 2 wideout position.

Jackson caught eight of the nine passes thrown his way for 62 yards in Sunday's 17-6 loss at Houston. He was used once as a runner, losing nine yards.
Jackson was second on the team in targets and receptions, trailing only Pierre Garcon, who caught 10 passes on 12 looks. Robert Griffin III was under constant pressure, and wasn't able to lead Washington to any touchdowns, but expect that to change in Week 2, and Jackson to possibly score, taking on a beatable Jacksonville secondary.

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 may still be limited in the preseason as a precaution.
