The Philadelphia Eagles aren't the only NFC East team dealing with a few injuries after Thursday's practice. Down in Washington, Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson (remember that guy?) has reportedly suffered a Grade 2 separated shoulder which will cause him to miss a few weeks.
Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispach described the situation:
"Receiver DeSean Jackson was injured in the first 1-on-1 session of the day. He ran a long route, then appeared to hit his right shoulder against a blocking sled that was placed behind the end zone.
Jackson did not participate for the remainder of practice, and declined comment afterward. However, he remained on the field for several minutes after practice chatting and shaking hands with Houston players."

The irony here is that Jackson suffered this injury just days after saying he's unstoppable. His exact words:
"I don't feel no one could stop me. You could go get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman, whoever you want to get."
In related news, the Eagles' blocking sled has just entered the safety competition across from Malcolm Jenkins.
UPDATE: Here's video of the incident. Clearly not a good idea to have the sled where it is.
