DeSean Jackson: ‘I don’t Plan on Missing This Game’
Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice Wednesday.
However, Jackson's shoulder injury isn't expected to keep him out of Week three showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jackson said he plans to play Week 3 against the Eagles.
"I don't plan on missing this game," Jackson said.
Jackson sprained his AC joint early in Sunday's blowout of the Jags and was quickly ruled out for the day. Injury occurred when Jackson was trying to haul in a deep ball from Kirk Cousins when Jaguars safety Josh Evans came across his body. Jackson ended up awkwardly falling with a ton of weight on his left elbow and shoulder.
"I don't think an AC joint is jeopardizing my career in the long haul," Jackson said. "If it's all on me, I'm playing. I don't plan on missing this game."
Making his Redskins debut, Jackson caught eight passes for 62 yards in Sunday's Week one loss at Houston. Overall, Jackson has nine grabs for 81 yards and no touchdowns.
