DeSean Jackson WR WAS 11 Days

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.

X-rays on Jackson's injured leg came back negative , the Washington Post reports.

Jackson was seen walking with a limp after the game and said he was in constant pain Sunday night. He is uncertain at this point if he will miss any time.

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.

Jackson is questionable to return after suffering a fibula contusion that forced him to be carted off the field in Sunday's game.

Jackson caught 5-of-6 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown prior to exiting, and it doesn't appear likely that the wideout will return to action. The team will likely have Jackson undergo further x-rays to confirm the injury, and we'll update his status as soon as more information is known. Look for Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed and Andre Roberts to lead the Redskins' receiving attack with Jackson's status uncertain.

Jackson caught 2-of-5 targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 17-14 loss at San Francisco.

Jackson was quiet, although he actually led the Redskins in receiving yardage. Robert Griffin has struggled the last couple of weeks, which has hurt Jackson's production. Until the offense gets back on track, it will be tough to rely on Jackson, but on the bright side, he'll face a beatable Colts' secondary in Week 13.
