Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is expected to miss three to four weeks of game action after suffering a hamstring in Washington's loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jackson has missed a lot of time due to injuries lately. He suffered a shoulder injury during training camp after accidentally running into a blocking sled. Jackson only played a few snaps before visibly straining his hamstring against the Dolphins.

With Jackson expected to miss a few weeks, it's possible he might not suit up when the Eagles play Washington on Oct. 4. That date is only three weeks away from yesterday.

Jackson, who was unceremoniously dumped by the Eagles in the 2014 offseason, put up big numbers against Philadelphia last year. He finished with nine receptions for 243 yards (27.0 average) and one touchdown against his former team.

The Eagles have really been getting some favorable injury luck recently. Just last night it was announced Dallas star receiver Dez Bryant won't be able to play in the Eagles-Cowboys game next week.
