Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will miss 3-4 weeks due to a pulled hamstring, coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday. "Could be shorter, but you never know with a hamstring," Gruden said. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported earlier Monday that Jackson was slated to miss a few games after an MRI revealed a fairly significant strain. Jackson sustained the injury early in Week 1 against the Dolphins. He had no catches and was injured on his only target, which was a deep pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins. Gruden said wide receiver Rashad Ross will have "to step up" in Jackson's absence. He also pointed to wide receivers Ryan Grant and Jamison Crowder as playing a larger role on offense. Although, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed were the focal points of the passing game after Jackson exited Sunday's season opener.
The Redskins signed wideout Rashad Ross to their practice squad and released wideout Marvin McNutt from the squad. The team also announced that receiver Leonard Hankerson (knee) and defensive end Stephen Bowen (knee) returned to practice after being on the PUP list.
The Bears have signed guard Conor Boffeli and receiver Rashad Ross to the practice squad, according to WSCR 670. In order to make room on the practice squad, the team parted ways with cornerback Jordan Sullen . Ross had been with the Bears this season, but was waived a few days ago. The club decided to bring him back as a member of the practice squad.
The Bears promoted wideout Chris Williams from the practice squad and waived receiver Rashad Ross.
The Bears announced Tuesday they promoted defensive back Isaiah Frey and wide receiver Rashad Ross from the practice squad. The team also released running back Shaun Draughn, wide receiver Chris Williams and tight end Matthew Mulligan.
