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.

Jackson (shoulder) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, after which coach Jay Gruden expressed his hope that the wideout practices Friday, the Washington Post reports. Nevertheless, Jackson could be a game-time decision.
Friday's injury report will ultimately estimate the likelihood that Jackson takes the field Sunday at Philadelphia. However, his sparse workload Thursday -- half-speed routes and catching passes -- didn't earn him even a limited designation, leaving his Week 3 availability up in the air. If he plays, Gruden suggested that Jackson's snap count could be capped, which would afford Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant additional looks.

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.
