Eagles Issue Surprising DeSean Jackson Health Update

The Eagles issued a surprising DeSean Jackson health update on Monday.

One day removed from unarguably the team’s biggest win of the season, Philadelphia announced that Jackson could rejoin his teammates in time for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.

The Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday to take control of their playoff fate. A victory next week versus the New York Giants, or a Dallas loss against the Washington Redskins, would secure a postseason berth for Philly.

Jackson has been on the IR after being forced out in Week 9 with an abdominal injury. Due to the fact that he is on the IR with a designation to return, he would not even be eligible for a comeback until the playoffs.

According to ESPN NFL insider Tim McManus, Jackson is “feeling good” and showing off his old speed at this point.

Jackson came back to the Eagles earlier this year after having spent the last few seasons with the Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In his first game of the season, Jackson caught eight passes for 154 yards and two scores.

Unfortunately, he was subsequently injured in Week 2 and then missed the following six weeks of action.

If Jackson is in fact ultimately able to return for the playoffs, it would be a huge boost for Carson Wentz and the offense.
