Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 1 vs HOU (9 / 8 / 62 / 0 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush)
Desean Jackson was heavily utilized throughout the game, but was never fully able to break free from the Texans defense. Washington attempted to harness Jackson's play-making abilities through swing passes and reverses, but Jackson often left yards on the field trying to hit the home run every time he touched the ball. Jackson was given a carry on a reverse end-around in the third quarter, but the Texans defense was not fooled and Jackson was brought down for a nine yard loss. On another play, Jackson gained no yardage on a bubble screen where he tried to cross the field, but Texans D stayed disciplined and was able to pursue him to the sidelines. Jackson's eight catches for 62 yards were a result of frequent short passes from Griffin, but Jackson was never able to break any plays upfield for yards after the catch.
2014 Week 2 vs JAX (2 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Desean Jackson was only able to haul in one pass on the day before he exited the game with a left shoulder injury when he was driven into the turf on an incomplete throw from Kirk Cousins. Jackson was unable to hold onto a beautiful deep pass from Robert Griffin earlier in the game, but caught the pass thrown to him on the play that RG3 injured his ankle. Jackson looked like he may have been in for a big game against Jacksonville's poor secondary before his injury forced him out for the day.
Latest NewsRedskins | DeSean Jackson says he'll play (Mon Sep 15, 04:15 PM) - 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. Our View: Jackson's a gamer, but the team won't rush him back until he's ready. The Washington passing offense will have a different look with Kirk Cousins under center. Fantasy owners should have another plan ready in case Jackson is not ready to play against his former team in Week 3.

His status for this week's game is yet to be determined. Our View: Washington plays against his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3. Jackson will be everything in his power to be on the field for this game.
link to story Redskins | DeSean Jackson day-to-day (Mon Sep 15, 12:57 PM) - Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is listed as day-to-day after being diagnosed with an AC joint sprain in Week 2. Jackson left the game in the first quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Our View: Jackson plays all out, and because of that he'll often get banged up. Monitor Washington's practice reports to see when Jackson can get back onto the field. If he misses any time, then it will increase the opportunity for Andre Roberts.
link to story Redskins | DeSean Jackson has sprain (Sun Sep 14, 07:37 PM) - 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. Our View: This is better news than a broken collarbone, and at least Kirk Cousins looks as good as he should have against a weak Jaguars pass defense. Next week's matchup against his old Eagles team is one that Jackson will not want to miss, but he might not have a say in that decision.
link to story Redskins | DeSean Jackson ruled out (Sun Sep 14, 02:05 PM) - Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will not return Week 2 after suffering a shoulder injury during the game.
