DeSean Jackson Fully Participates In Practice

New, comments

DeSean Jackson was a full participant in the Eagles Wednesday practice after he was officially cleared by an independent neurologist. He says it felt good to be back on the field.

"It feels good. Being away from the games and practice, and things like that, it's hard to sit around and just watch and stuff, so it's good to be back out there and get going."

However, he does say that just because he's practicing doesn't mean for sure that he will be ready to play against the Colts this weekend.

"I don't know yet. We'll see. Go out through the week. We'll see how I do and things like that. Still, it's only Wednesday, so we still have a couple of days to get a feel for how I'm doing."

Whenever he returns from the concussion, he's not going to let it change the way he plays.

"As a football player, you can't really worry about how hard you get hit or what happens on the field. Just got to go out there and hopefully you don't get too injured or whatever the case may be. It's just a part of the game we play, so [I'll] just go out there and keep doing what I do. People can talk and say everything you can about me having it in my mind. Like I said, at the end of the day, I still have to go out there and play football, so I'm not going to worry about it being in the back of my mind. It's something that happened, unfortunately, but I still have to go out there and do a job, so [I] won't be worrying about it."
