Jackson (ankle) returned to practice Saturday, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Of the Ravens' three injured corners who returned to practice Saturday, Jackson was reportedly the most active. He's the favorite to open the season as the team's No. 3 corner, but could be asked to do something more in Week 1 against the Bengals, as starters Lardarius Webb (back) and Jimmy Smith (chest) are both banged up.

Jackson (ankle) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins, the Baltimore Post reports.

Jackson's ankle ailment will cost him a second consecutive preseason contest. Additionally, with Lardarius Webb (back) and Jimmy Smith (chest) also out, Jackson's chief competition for the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback position, Chykie Brown, should see extended playing time in Saturday's game.

Jackson (ankle) could play in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins, The Ravens' official website reports.

Health permitting, Jackson figures to open the season as the Ravens' No. 3 cornerback, though there's some chance that Chykie Brown is still in the mix for that role. With Lardarius Webb (back) looking uncertain for Week 1, Jackson could come into some surprising early-season IDP value.

Jackson (ankle), who did not play in Saturday's preseason game, was seen before the contest with a boot on his right foot, The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports.

Coach John Harbaugh said that Jackson isn't expected to miss a lot of time, but it's not entirely clear what that means. With No. 1 corner Lardarius Webb (back) yet to play this preseason, and No. 2 corner Jimmy Smith exiting Saturday's game with a chest injury, the Ravens are extremely banged up at arguably their thinnest position. Jackson is the favorite for the No. 3 cornerback job, a role he's been competing with Chykie Brown for during training camp.

Jackson suffered a minor ankle injury during Sunday's practice, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Jackson continued an impressive start to training camp with an interception in the Ravens' preseason opener on Thursday. Although he's currently nursing minor ankle and back issues, Jackson remains the favorite to secure Baltimore's nickel cornerback role. A day or two of rest may be in Jackson's future, but the third-year pro has done well to separate himself from teammate Chykie Brown in their current position battle.

Jackson injured his back during Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers, but he said it's a non-issue and that he'll be able to practice this weekend, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Jackson is currently battling Chykie Brown for the No. 3 cornerback spot, so he's inclined to stay as healthy as possible. Because of his reaction to the injury, there's no reason to believe that he won't be on the practice field this weekend.
