Huddle Up: Jackson was targeted a healthy 11 times Sunday and had a 5-117-1 outing vs. old team in Philly and seemed to emerge from the contest no worse for wear so expect him to be a full-go Thursday night.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson made steps in a 'positive direction,' however. Jackson went through individual drills in practice Friday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Jackson is dealing with a painful AC joint sprain, and it will likely come down to a Sunday-morning decision. The guess here is that he'll play vs. his former team, but we're a little less than 48 hours from knowing for sure.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, according to Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. "He's playing," McCoy said. "He said he's definitely playing. That's the first thing he texted, he said 'I'm playing.' "
Huddle Up: Jackson didn't practice Wednesday as he recovers from his mild AC joint sprain, but most all reports have the WR lining up Sunday against his former team. See what the rest of the week holds.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder), who is day-to-day with a shoulder sprain, said he plans to play in Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source that has talked with Jackson. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's playing status will be determined based on pain throughout the week.
Huddle Up: It's no secret Jackson would love to square off against his former team, but he's going to have to demonstrate he's ready in the next 6 days. Stay tuned ...

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) suffered a sprained AC joint in the first quarter of the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 'I feel a little better from when it first happened,' Jackson said Sunday, Sept. 14. 'The player actually just fell right on my shoulder.' Jackson said he considers himself day to day, and it is too early to know if he'll be ready for the Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: If Jackson can't play in Week 3 he'll be replaced by a combination of Andre Roberts and Ryan Grant. Both receivers would have a strong matchup against a weak Eagles secondary.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 11, and has caught three touchdown passes from QB Robert Griffin III.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) is expected to start sprinting and cutting in the next few days, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden indicated Jackson may be able to play in the second preseason game.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) left practice with what is believed to be an ankle injury Wednesday, Aug. 6. His ankle is wrapped as he sits on the sidelines.
Huddle Up: Not ideal, but too early to get overly concerned about the severity of the injury. We'll wait for more info out of Redskins camp.

A federal court hearing will take place Monday, Aug. 4, to determine whether Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson will have to repay agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,000 as an NFL arbitrator previously ruled.
Huddle Up: A little off-the-field drama for D-Jax, though his paychecks from Dan Snyder should soften the blow of serving up half a mil to Drew Rosenhaus.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was able to do some running during organized team activities but probably is not 100 percent at this point. Jackson has looked tentative at times coming out of cuts.
Huddle Up: It's too early in the offseason to be overly concerned about Jackson's health. If he's still gimpy and limited once training camp starts, then it might be time to look for the panic button.

Posted: 5/29/2014 7:57pm et
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) said his injured left hamstring is 'just a little tight,' and he doesn't think it's a serious issue. Jackson is excited about the upcoming season with his new team, and he has adapted well to his new surroundings and new teammates during organized team activities.
Huddle Up: Nothing to really worry about with the calendar still reading "May," but hammy issues often linger, and it'll be something to keep an eye on over the summer.

An arbitrator ruled that Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson owes former agent Drew Rosenhaus $516,415 in back loans and fees.
Huddle Up: Looks like Jackson -- who just signed a 4-year, $32 mil deal with the Skins -- will have to pony up and peel a few bills off the top of his fresh bankroll.

Tuesday's deal between the Washington Redskins and WR DeSean Jackson appears to be a 3-year pact. Financial terms of the deal are still undisclosed.
Huddle Up: With the offseason additions of Jackson, the deep burner they've lacked, and ex-Cardinal Andre Roberts paired with 2013 receptions leader Pierre Garcon, the Skins suddenly have a potent WR corps for RGIII. At the same time with all the targets -- especially if TE Jordan Reed can come back strong -- don't count on Jackson or Garcon approaching their career-high numbers.

Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) has left Redskins park, but will stay in Washington in hopes of getting a deal done with the team. His agent reportedly is in negotiations with the club.
Huddle Up: The speedy Jackson and RGIII's big arm could form a potent combo -- one that could turn out to haunt the in-division rival Eagles. See what develops.

Updating a previous report, the Carolina Panthers will not pursue free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles).
Huddle Up: The Panthers, with their limited budget, signed free agents Jerricho Cotchery and Tiquan Underwood, and those two could wind up being the team's starters, pending what Carolina does in the draft.

The Oakland Raiders are willing to make a substantial offer to free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) but will not get into a bidding war for him.
Huddle Up: The Silver & Black already have signed wideout James Jones, but luring Jackson back to the Golden State would a strong WR corps for new QB Matt Schaub.

Posted: 3/30/2014 2:27pm et
The Buffalo Bills are said to be a serious suitor for free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) but will not get into a bidding war.
Huddle Up: Sure, the Bills could always use another outside weapon for second-year QB EJ Manuel, but they'll be fine with the likes of Stevie Johnson, TJ Graham, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin if the right price can't be agreed upon.

The Philadelphia Eagles released WR DeSean Jackson Friday, March 28.
Huddle Up: Well, that escalated quickly. Trade rumors surrounding DJax had been swirling, but the Eagles evidently couldn't find a willing partner and had enough of Jackson's act. Jackson is still capable of providing a team with a dangerous playmaking element, and now he has his pick of teams. This should be interesting.

The New York Jets have measured interest in Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson that will intensify if the Eagles release him.
Huddle Up: Jackson became more interesting to the Jets with the signing of ex-Philly teammate Michael Vick, but there are plenty of hurdles ahead, including the number of other teams interested in the wideout and Jackson's high salary-cap figure ($12M).

Posted: 3/21/2014 8:32pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles have intensified their efforts to try to trade WR DeSean Jackson within the past week.
Huddle Up: This has been a much-rumored move, and with Philly having inked Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin they do have a surplus of wide receivers. Jackson still has plenty left in the tank, and in the right situation would be a viable fantasy WR1.

Posted: 3/20/2014 7:47pm et
The New England Patriots have expressed interest in trading for Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson.
Huddle Up: The Niners and Jets reportedly also are interested, but N.E. obviously presents the most fantasy upside with Tom Brady at QB and the team's need for outside WR help.

The Philadelphia Eagles may be shopping WR DeSean Jackson because head coach Chip Kelly doesn't want him around. Kelly has a final say on the 53-man roster, and Jackson has had a couple of dustups with coaches.
Huddle Up: The Eagles re-signed both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, as well as acquiring Darren Sproles, so they would have bodies to replace Jackson in their offense. DJax, meanwhile, can still play and would have a chip on his shoulder to motivate him if Philly ships him out of town.

Posted: 3/18/2014 10:47pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles are serious about listening to trade offers for WR DeSean Jackson, and the team is at least seeking a third-round pick and potentially more in return for Jackson. The Eagles have already heard from the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots. Jackson is two years into his five-year, $51 million extension and will make $10.25 million in base salary in 2014.
Huddle Up: Jackson's big-play ability is enticing as he's one of 5 NFL wideouts to catch a 100 or more passes since 2008 and average more than 17 yards a reception, so don't be surprised if a deal gets cut long before the May draft.

Posted: 3/3/2014 1:18am et
Some people in the Philadelphia Eagles organization believe WR DeSean Jackson's personality is not a great fit with the locker room culture head coach Chip Kelly is looking to create, and that the team could be open to trading Jackson.
Huddle Up: Jackson is coming off a career season (82-1,332-9), but something could be in the works with Philly already getting deals done with fellow wideouts Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin this offseason.

Posted: 1/24/2014 11:02pm et
Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson earned a base salary escalator in 2013. He's slated to earn $10.5 million in 2014.
Huddle Up: With Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin both hitting free agency this offseason, the Eagles will be putting a bunch of money into the wide receiver position. It remains to be seen if Jackson's pay raise costs Philly one or both of his wingmen.

Posted: 1/10/2014 12:57pm et
Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Eagles likely will not look to restructure WR DeSean Jackson's contract this offseason in order to reduce his 2014 salary cap figure. He is scheduled to count $12.5 million against the salary cap next season.
Huddle Up: With both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper free agents, it would make sense to try to work Jackson's cap number down. But Jackson has made noise about wanting to be paid more, not less, so unless the Eagles have a creative solution to make DeSean happy while alos freeing up money for Maclin and Cooper, status quo might be the best case scenario for the Eagles.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson isn't worried about working against one of the best shut-down cornerbacks in the league in Week 6 in Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis. 'I'm sure (Darrelle Revis) will follow me around,' Jackson said. 'He followed me around when he was with the New York Jets two years ago. I'm sure his coaches are confident in him. But I don't think he can run with me. I don't think he's as fast as me.' Jackson had only two catches for 28 yards the last time he faced Revis.
Huddle Up: Jackson, who likely will have Nick Foles throwing him the ball, broke out of a mini-slump with 7 catches for 132 yards and a score Sunday and is sure to draw Revis as the Eagles' clear top pass-catcher. Finishing with double-digit fantasy points would be considered a victory.
