  • Browns' Malik Jackson: Questionable for Sunday

    Jackson (ankle) is listed as questionable for the Browns' Week 8 contest against the Steelers. Jackson was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, and his status for Sunday is up in the air.

  • Browns' Malik Jackson: Moving to Cleveland

    Jackson signed with the Browns on Friday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Once a formidable pocket disruptor from the defensive interior, Jackson collected 14.5 sacks and the first Pro Bowl nod of his career during his first two seasons with the Jaguars in 2016 and 2017. With time split between Jacksonville (2018) and Philadelphia (2019-2020) the past three years, Jackson has not been nearly as effective as a pass rusher. A Lisfranc injury suffered Week 1 of the 2019 season may have factored into the drop-off in production. Possessing just six total sacks over his past 32 games played, Jackson hopes to find a spark in joining All-Pro Myles Garrett on Cleveland's defensive line. The veteran's run-stuffing abilities will come in handy when taking on Baltimore's reigning No. 1 rush offense twice in 2021.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Draws questionable tag

    Jackson (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game in Arizona, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports. Jackson will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before retaking the field, and he still has some hurdles to surpass before getting the green light to suit up Sunday. Javon Hargrave would be the favorite to enter the starting lineup if Jackson can't go.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Concussion confirmed

    Jackson (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday. Jackson's designation on the injury report confirms the suspicion that he suffered a concussion in last week's game against the Saints, which means he will need to clear the league's five-step concussion protocol in order to suit up Sunday in Arizona. Javon Hargrave would likely get the nod at defensive tackle if Jackson's unable to play.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Still dealing with injury

    Jackson (quadriceps) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports. Jackson continues to work back from the quadriceps injury that he aggravated in Week 8's win over the Cowboys. If the veteran is healthy enough to return, expect him to work back into the defensive line rotation for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Giants.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Ready for Sunday's game

    Jackson (quadriceps) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Cowboys. Jackson missed last week's divisional win over the Giants, but after logging a full practice Friday, he's been cleared to return to the lineup. The 30-year-old defensive tackle handled 79 percent of the defensive workload in Week 1 but saw his snap share shrink for five straight games before his injury, ending up at 44 percent in Week 6. However, Hassan Ridgeway (bicep) is now out for the year, so Jackson's snap count could start rising again as long as he's fully healthy.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Could miss two games

    Jackson is expected to miss two weeks with a quadriceps injury he picked up in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. This means Jackson likely will miss Thursday's matchup against the Giants and the Week 8 tilt against the Cowboys, and the Eagles hope he'll return to action following their Week 9 bye. Javon Hargrave is expected to bump into a starting role in place of Jackson, and Hassan Ridgeway should see his snap count rise as well.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Expected to miss season

    Jackson is expected to miss the rest of the 2019 season with a Lisfranc injury, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Garafolo also notes that Jackson will have surgery next week. The 29-year-old had to be carted off the field in Sunday's 32-27 victory over Washington. Sunday was Jackson's first appearance for the Eagles after signing a three-year, $30 million contract in March. The veteran's absence leaves work for Tim Jernigan and Hassan Ridgeway in Philadelphia's defensive front.

  • Eagles' Malik Jackson: Getting $10 million per year

    Jackson is signing a three-year, $30 million contract with the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN Schefter's initial report mistakenly placed the total value at $10 million, which is actually the annual average. The updated terms are far more reasonable, considering Jackson is 29 years old and had 18 sacks in his three seasons with Jacksonville. He'll slide in as a starter next to Fletcher Cox, giving the Eagles a solid argument for the most fearsome interior-line duo in the league, though it could just as easily be argued that Aaron Donald plus any warm body is superior.

  • Jaguars' Malik Jackson: Forces fumble Sunday

    Jackson posted three tackles (two solo), 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble against the Colts on Sunday. Jackson doubled his sack total Sunday, and he's on pace to eclipse his current career high of 6.5 sacks. While it's another solid year for Jackson, it's nothing special compared to the rest of the league, and he isn't considered a high-caliber IDP threat at this time.
