DeSean Jackson WR WAS 2 Months

Jackson (lower leg) took part in individual drills Thursday, CSN's Tarik El-Bashir reports.

Jackson has been able to get on the practice field two days in a row, but is status for Week 15 remains in question, as head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson will need to run at full speed in the next day or two in order to play Sunday.

Jackson (shin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Afterward, coach Jay Gruden said, "I think he can jog pretty good...He just needs to air it out."

Gruden intimated that Jackson's activity level in Thursday's iteration of drills will be "telling" for his Week 15 availability, but at the moment, the wideout is 50-50 to suit up Sunday versus the Giants in New York, according to Rob Carlin of CSN Washington. Expect Jackson's status to receive clarification, one way or the other, by the end of the week.

With regard to Jackson, who missed Sunday's game against the Rams with a shin contusion, coach Jay Gruden indicated Monday, "hopefully he'll play this week...we'll wait and see on that."

Jackson thus remains in the iffy category in advance of Sunday's game against the Giants, with Washington's QB situation for the contest cloudy as well, thanks to Colt McCoy's neck sprain.

As expected, Jackson (shin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Jackson's shin prevented him from practicing all week. Andre Roberts will likely see an uptick in playing time with Jackson out, and maybe even Santana Moss (who had his first targets of the year last week after Jackson left with the injury) will see additional involvement.

Jackson (shin) will not play in Sunday's game against the Rams, sources told Dianna Marie Russini of NBC TV Channel 4 in Washington, D.C..

Jackson did not practice all week, so this wouldn't be a surprise. However, he's listed as questionable on the injury report. Still, Jackson owners will need to check back before Sunday's 1:00 pm ET kickoff to get confirmation on this report.

Jackson (shin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Jackson is iffy for this game, and even if he does suit up, his quickness and explosiveness could be limited by the injury. But it's not all bad news: Washington's passing attack - reinvigorated by new starting quarterback Colt McCoy - should be able to find success against the Rams' mediocre passing defense. Jackson owners will need to check back before Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff to get confirmation one way or another on his status.

Jackson (shin) didn't take part in practice Thursday.

Thus marks a second consecutive absence from drills, which isn't a surprise considering Jay Gruden's comments Monday that Jackson will "be OK with time," according to Chris Russell of 980 ESPN Washington. After suffering a shin contusion this past Sunday, running, cutting, and jumping, which are hallmarks of Jackson's repertoire, are likely difficult maneuvers at the moment. However, with one practice remaining this week, there remains a chance that his status will clear up before Sunday's game against the Rams.

The injury that Jackson sustained Sunday against the Colts is a lower leg contusion, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Meanwhile, Chris Russell of espn980.com notes that coach Jay Gruden suggested Monday that it looks like Jackson will "be okay with time," while indicating on that front that he doesn't know "how long it will be." With that in mind, the wideout's status for Sunday's game against the Rams is cloudy at this stage, though hopefully as the week progresses, we'll have added clarity with regard to Jackson's Week 14 playing prospects.

Jackson (leg) has been downgraded to out, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Jackson was carted off the field Sunday with what was originally called a "fibula bruise," and will not return to the contest. The Redskins will have to mount their comeback effort without their leader in both receiving yards and touchdowns.
