Reid: Desean Jackson has concussion

In his postgame press conference Andy Reid addressed only one injury, the one to his star WR Desean Jackson. Reid said he left the game with a concussion, but said that he didn't think it was as bad the first one suffered by Brian Westbrook.

"It wasn't quite like that one where (Westbrook) was knocked out like that. We'll just have to see how he does here. We'll do the test on him and evaluate him."

"He was just a little groggy. He was able to get off the field and all that fairly quickly."

Watching Jackson on the sideline, it seemed like he spent a lot of time favoring his jaw but he did look a bit out of sorts. Reid referred to baseline tests they'll run on Jackson this week to see if he has any lingering effects this week. If not, he could be cleared to play... but one has to wonder with all the extra attention being paid to concussions this year whether the team and the league wouldn't hold him out whether he was cleared to play or not.

While we're on the subject, did anyone see the Fox pregame crew basically ream the NFL out for the treatment of former players and concussions?
