DeSean Jackson injured his foot/ankle/lower leg during this morning's practice when he apparently stepped on someone's foot while cutting. He is a brief timeline of the initial reactions to the injury. With Pierre Garcon out with a hamstring injury for tomorrow's game, it looks like the Redskins will be without both of their starting WRs.
#Redskins DeSean Jackson sort of hopped off the field, being looked at by trainers. They took off his left shoe. Ankle?— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) August 6, 2014
Hot Take Alert!:
Moving on Up!:
Preseason openers show little, but if Redskins don't have both starting WRs then it's a total wash. Andre Roberts, welcome to No. 1.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) August 6, 2014
If he was staring to the right that means season over, to the left, IR with designation to return. Staring straight ahead means 2-3 days rest. That was a close one.
DJax had a hamstring strain in OTA's. Looks like this is his ankle. He's sitting on table just staring straight ahead. #Redskins— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) August 6, 2014
Already getting mental reps in.
Doug Williams is standing with DeSean Jackson just talking while he ices. DJax explaining to him the route. #Redskins— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) August 6, 2014
Dr. Tandler offers 3 of 5 possibilities for Jackson's injury:
Some speculating that Jackson issue is his foot. Ice more on ankle but hard to tell. I'll go with lower left leg. #Redskins— Rich Tandler (@Rich_TandlerCSN) August 6, 2014
Cleats are on!:
