The Eagles placed Jackson (ankle) on injured reserve Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks due to a non-displaced fracture in his right ankle, so his placement on IR was only a matter of time. It appears that the veteran wideout has a shot to make a late-season return, an eventuality which could become more realistic if the Eagles are in contention for a playoff spot come December. On a more positive note for Philadelphia, Jackson's placement on IR opens up a roster spot for the tentative return of Jalen Reagor (thumb).

Jackson will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his ankle during Thursday's win over the Giants, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson was originally believed to have suffered a high ankle sprain, but ensuing tests have now determined the serious nature of the injury. The return timetable would suggest the veteran receiver could return near the end of the regular season, but it's possible the Eagles might simply take their time with Jackson's recovery process in the event they bow out of contention for a playoff spot. It's worth noting Jackson, who has played in just 18 games over the past three seasons, does not plan to retire, though this newest injury will likely put him on injured reserve for the foreseeable future.

Jackson is expected to be placed on injured reserve in the near future after an MRI on Friday confirmed he suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's 22-21 win over the Giants, John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

A previous report suggested Jackson might need surgery for his right ankle, but it isn't clear if that's still an option or not. He's expected to miss at least three games, and possibly more, after injuring his ankle in his return to the lineup after missing the Eagles' previous three games with a hamstring strain. John Hightower could now rejoin the starting lineup, especially if Alshon Jeffery (calf/foot) misses more time.

Jackson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's win over the Giants, but he'll undergo an MRI on Friday before a determination is made on surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old returned from a three-game absence and caught three passes for 34 yards and rushed once for 12 yards Thursday before suffering the injury while fielding a punt. A high-ankle sprain would likely sideline Jackson for at least the next few weeks, but he's apparently not out of the woods for potentially having an even more serious injury.

Jackson exited Thursday's contest against the Giants due to an apparent leg injury late in the fourth quarter, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson endured a late hit while fielding a punt with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. In addition to taking impact to the head, the veteran wideout's right leg bent awkwardly. He wasn't able to walk to the medical tent under his own power. Before exiting Thursday's game, Jackson had three catches for 34 yards and one carry for 12 yards.

Jackson (hamstring) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson wrapped up Week 7 prep Wednesday with a full practice for the first time since Week 3, when he initially strained his hamstring. Elsewhere in the Eagles' receiving corps, Alshon Jeffery (foot/calf) is sitting out again, leaving Jackson, Travis Fulgham, Greg Ward, John Hightower, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Quez Watkins as the available healthy wide receivers Thursday.

Coach Doug Pederson said he anticipates Jackson (hamstring) will be able to play Thursday against the Giants, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, fellow wideout Alshon Jeffery (foot) is likely to miss the contest. There's a decent chance that the Eagles will officially list Jackson as questionable, but if he's able to suit up Thursday, he may not be in store for a full snap load.

Jackson (hamstring) was listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated injury report.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles expect to welcome back Jackson on Thursday against the Giants following a three-game absence to tend to a strained hamstring. Position mate Alshon Jeffery (foot) continues to log limited sessions, with no indication when he may make his season debut. Wednesday's injury report will provide a sense of the duo's ability to play Week 7, but Travis Fulgham, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and John Hightower are all healthy in the event one or both of Jackson and Jeffery remain sidelined.

Jackson (hamstring) is listed as a limited participant on Monday's estimated injury report.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles hope to have Jackson, who has missed the last three weeks due to a lingering hamstring strain, back on the field for Thursday's divisional matchup against the Giants. Beginning the week with at least a limited listing, even if Monday's practice report is only an estimate, puts Jackson on the right track, though he could need to officially go through a full practice session before being cleared to retake the field. Tuesday is expected to bring Philadelphia's highest intensity practice of the week, so how much Jackson is able to do then could go a long way in determining his Week 7 status.

Jackson (hamstring), who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, is expected to return to the lineup for the Eagles' Week 7 contest against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Philadelphia is facing a quick turnaround Week 7 with a Thursday night road game at the Giants, the team apparently is optimistic about Jackson's chances of making his first appearance since Sept. 27. Prior to being ruled out for the Week 6 game Friday, the wideout turned in a trio of limited practices this week, with coach Doug Pederson indicating that Jackson looked good during those sessions. The Eagles' highest intensity practice of Week 7 with likely come Tuesday, so if Jackson is able to put in a full workout that day, he should have a good chance at gaining clearance for Thursday.
