Marlin Jackson injured at Eagles practice

New, comments

Multiple reports say that free safety Marlin Jackson was helped off the team field at the Eagles OTAs. With Jackson's extensive injury record, any time he goes down it's a matter of concern. The team has said that he sustained an ankle injury. Reporters initially thought it was a knee issue.

Team trainers helped Jackson limp off the turf. Jackson appeared to be favoring his right knee. After making it to the sideline, Jackson angrily punched the bubble’s wall and appeared to be sobbing loudly. After exiting the bubble with some of the medical staff, Jackson was taken by cart to the complex for treatment. He could be seen with his hands over his eyes as the cart drove away from the bubble and toward the complex.
