DeSean Jackson Injury: Washington Redskins receiver questionable against Eagles

Washington Redskins wide receiver has been ruled questionable to play against the Eagles in Week 3.

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has officially been ruled questionable on Washington's final injury report heading into the team's Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Full update announced by the team itself:

By strict definition, the "questionable" designation means there is a 50% chance a player will play. Jackson is still dealing with a shoulder injury suffered in Washington's Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jackson was forced to leave the game early and he did not return.

Jackson, who was unceremoniously released by the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the offseason, has stated that he really wants to play this week against his former team. Jackson texted Eagles running back LeSean McCoy earlier this week to inform his former teammate that he will play.

It appears there will another update of Jackson's status tomorrow on Saturday.

In non-Jackson news, Washington ruled out starting tight end Jordan Reed, backup cornerback Tracy Porter, and backup linebacker (and former Eagles player) Akeem Jordan. Quarterback Robert Griffin III was ruled out earlier in the week. Backup signal caller Kirk Cousins will start in place of Griffin III.
