The extent of DeSean Jackson's injury unknown

Posted on: July 31, 2010 5:46 pm
D. Jackson catches a pass at Philadelphia's training camp the day before he injured his back (AP). By all accounts, Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson was having a great start to Philadelphia’s training camp, catching long passes from QB Kevin Kolb and showing the front office brass why he feels he deserves a new contract.

Then, he fell to the turf during practice and didn’t immediately rise. The reason: he injured his back and had to be carted off the field. Not a great moment for Philadelphia, though the consensus seems to be that this injury isn't that big a deal.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer , it seemed to be a non-contact injury.

From the Inquirer:

The play occurred during a no-pads 7-on-7 drill. Jackson pulled in a 12-yard pass in between cornerback Asante Samuel and linebacker Omar Gaither. There didn't appear to be any contact, but Jackson looked as if he had to twist awkwardly to catch the ball. He dropped to the turf, rolled over and stayed down for several seconds before the training staff ran to him.

"I told coach, 'I didn't touch him. I don't know what happened,'" Gaither said.

As the trainers looked him over, Eagles coach Andy Reid came over to examine the scene. Jackson eventually got up, but he was wobbly and looked as if he might fall over again. He was visibly distraught as he was carted away.

Later, Enquirer reporter Jeff McLane wrote on his Twitter page , “DeSean walked out of the locker room on his own, got into his car and sped away without comment.”

The extent of Jackson's injury is not known at this point, but if he's out for a significant amount of time, look for Jason Avant (who’s more of a possession receiver) and Jordan Norwood (who’s not quite as good as Avant) to get those reps. Both obviously are big steps down from Jackson, who’s quickly become one of the top play-making receivers in the league.
