Jackson (knee) is active for Sunday's contest at Dallas. Washington is already locked into the No. 4 seed in the NFC, meaning Jackson's appearance may be nothing more than a cameo during the first possession or two of the game. If the preceding comes to fruition, Pierre Garcon could suffer a similar fate to Jackson, leaving plenty of WR reps for Jamison Crowder, Ryan Grant (abdomen), and Rashad Ross.
Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. There hasn't been any indication that Jackson's injury is serious, but with his team locked in as the No. 4 seed, there's no reason for him to play more than a few snaps. Even if he's active, it's safe to assume he'll be limited.
Jackson (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. With the NFC East wrapped up, head coach Jay Gruden suggested early in the week that he may rest a number of key members of the team, including Jackson. If a respite helps Jackson approach full health for Wild Card weekend, Gruden will likely choose that route. However, Gruden may not make the final decision until 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff at Dallas in order to avoid showing his hand.
Jackson's coach, Jay Gruden, said that it might make sense to rest some key players in Week 17 against the Cowboys, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. As a veteran who has dealt with various injuries this season, Jackson is one of the more obvious candidates to be rested, along with Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon. While it would be unusual for any of those guys to actually play a full game, it won't be at all surprising if head coach Jay Gruden begins the contest with most of his usual starters.
Jackson (knee) caught four of six targets for 40 yards in Saturday's win against the Eagles. Jackson's numbers were nothing special but his speed opened up the field for Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon to be big games.
