IFWT_DeSean Jackson

Yesterday, #IFWT reported DeSean Jackson’s game ending hamstring injury after just the second drive of the game. Today, reports indicate that the Washington wide receiver will miss between three and four weeks of play.


On a deep pass from newly starting quarter back Kirk Cousins, Jaccpot injured his hamstring and left the game while Washington went up 3-0. Without Jaccpot on the field, Washington ultimately lost to the Dolphins, 17-10. Washington head coach Jay Gruden said about losing DeSean, “Anytime you lose a guy that runs a 4.25 40, it damages some of your play-action game…he had the step [on the corner] and I believe he would have caught it if he didn’t pull his hammy.” Definitely a tough loss to an already lacking NFC East squad.

As stated yesterday, those hamstring injuries can definitely be tricky and often come out of nowhere so I would not be surprised if Washington changes Jaccpot’s expected return date. Hopefully he will heal up sooner than later and return to his status of the 2014-15 season when he missed just one game.
