DeSean Jackson could be calling it quits for 2020
Injuries have piled up for the Philadelphia Eagles in their early season. At 1-4-1, any player returning would be an upgrade of what currently is on the roster now.
Unfortunately, the Eagles could be without a focal point of their offense less than 60 minutes after his long-awaited return.
Philadelphia wide receiver DeSean Jackson would leave in the final minutes of Thursday’s game against the New York Giants after awkwardly landing on his leg during a punt return. The Eagles training staff would need to help him off the field for further evaluation.
Jackson missed the three games with a hamstring injury. Prior to heading to recovery, the 33-year-old had tallied 10 catches for 121 yards.
Wide receiver has been an Achilles’ heel for the Eagles’ offense in 2020. First-round pick Jalen Reagor is currently on the injured reserve with a thumb injury while Alshon Jeffery has yet to suit up for a game this season. Both top tight end targets Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert missed Thursday’s showdown with lower-body injuries.
The Eagles have not yet confirmed the severity of Jackson’s injury.
