Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice on Wednesday and Washington head coach Jay Gruden doesn't seem very optimistic about his playing chances against the Philadelphia Eagles this week.
Gruden's expectations of DeSean playing Sunday "lukewarm" Said he's hopeful but not counting on it.— Tim McManus (@Tim_McManus) September 30, 2015
Jackson suffered a hamstring strain during Washington's Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Sept. 13. It was originally reported Jackson would miss three to four weeks, so it's not impossible Jackson plays in this game. If the former Eagles wide receiver has his way, it sounds likes he really wants to suit up.
Jackson always seem eager to play against the team that unceremoniously dumped him coming off a career year. Jackson finished with nine receptions for 243 yards (27.0 average) and one touchdown in two games against Philadelphia in 2014.
The Eagles are scheduled to play Washington at FedEx Field this Sunday at 1:00 PM ET. Both teams are trying to reach .500 after starting out 1-2.
