According to a report from ProFootballTalk, Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been advised not to play against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3. Jackson's status for the Eagles-Redskins game still has not been officially determined, however.

Jackson suffered an acromioclavicular sprain (shoulder sprain) in Washington's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2. Jackson landed hard on his shoulder and was forced to leave the game early. He did not return.

Jackson has stated multiple times during the week that he wants to play against the Eagles. It is no surprise he wants to face the team that unceremoniously released him in the offseason.

Jackson was officially ruled questionable on the final Washington injury report heading into this week's Eagles-Redskins game. It sounds like an official decision on his status will be made available shortly. Stay tuned.

UPDATE (11:44 AM EST) - DeSean Jackson is ACTIVE. It remains to be seen how much he will actually play.
