Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Moves to injured reserve
Jackson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Jackson suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's loss to Dallas, so it's no surprise to see him headed toward injured reserve. The 24-year-old is unlikely to be fully recovered in time for training camp and could miss the start of the 2022 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Sustains ACL tear
Jackson's MRI revealed he suffered a torn ACL against the Cowboys on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Jackson recorded three catches on five targets for 22 yards and his first NFL touchdown before the injury. He'll now face a long recovery that will likely force him to miss the bulk of the Eagles' offseason on-field programs. He'll work to return to full health at some point in the 2022 season....

Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Set to have MRI
Jackson will undergo an MRI on Sunday after injuring his right knee in Saturday's 51-26 loss to the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Per the report, early indications are that Jackson avoided an ACL injury prior to exiting Saturday's contest. Before departing, the tight end logged three catches on five targets for 22 yards and his first NFL touchdown. Jackson saw expanded snaps Week 18 due to Dallas Goedert (illness) and Jack Stoll (illness) being on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Both should be on track to gain clearance ahead of the Eagles' wild-card round game, so even if Jackson is available for that contest, he'll be moving into a smaller role.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Will not return
Jackson (knee) will not return Saturday against the Cowboys.
Jackson injured his knee on punt coverage in the second half Saturday. He was having issues with putting weight on his leg and exited the game with trainers' assistance. Before exiting, Jackson had three catches on five targets for 22 yards and a touchdown. All were the firsts of his career.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Gets activated Saturday
Jackson (back) was activated from IR on Saturday.
Jackson was placed on IR back on Sept. 2 after injuring his back in mid-August. The Buffalo product and converted quarterback impressed in camp enough to stick around. Now that he is healthy, he'll provide the Eagles with tight end depth behind Dallas Goedert and Jack Stoll heading into Sunday's game against the Chargers.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: May not be rushed back
The Eagles aren't likely to add Jackson (back) to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
The Eagles could realistically be willing to take their time with Jackson, who is still working his way back from an injury and, as a former quarterback, learning the subtleties of the tight end position. The team activated Dallas Goedert from the COVID-19 list Wednesday, and Richard Rodgers is available to bump up from the practice squad in case more depth is required for Week 7.... See More ...

Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Back at practice
The Eagles designated Jackson (back) to return from injured reserve Wednesday.
Philadelphia will have a 21-day period to evaluate Jackson for a return to the active roster, but if he's reinstated during that stretch, he'll remain on IR for the rest of the season. Assuming he responds well to practices over the next few days, the 6-foot-7 Jackson could be activated ahead of Sunday's game in Las Vegas, where he would join Jack Stoll as backup options behind No. 1 tight end Dallas Goedert (illness), who remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list but should be ready to go by the weekend. Jackson has been sidelined since suffering a fractured bone in his back in a mid-August practice.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: In line for playing time
Jackson (back) will get some playing time when he returns from injury now that Zach Ertz has been dealt to the Cardinals, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.
Jackson is still working his way back from an injury suffered in training camp, but the Eagles liked what they saw in the preseason from the converted quarterback and most likely would have found roster space for him had he not been placed on IR. Now, he has a spot for sure when he returns, and GM Howie Roseman has said the team wants to see the Buffalo product get a chance to show he can produce in real games.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Still rehabbing
Jackson (back) is still in the process of rehabbing his injury, coach Nick Sirianni revealed Friday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Jackson has been sidelined since mid-August, when he suffered a fracture in his back. This update suggests the tight end's return certainly isn't imminent, though Sirianni didn't divulge a concrete timetable.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Placed on IR
Jackson (back) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Jackson suffered a back fracture in mid-August that carries a recovery timetable of 8-to-10 weeks, and he won't be eligible to return until at least Week 4 against Kansas City. The 23-year-old had a strong camp prior to his injury but will have to wait to make his season debut.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Out 8-10 weeks with back fracture
Jackson was diagnosed Wednesday with a fractured bone in his back and is facing a recovery timeline of 8-to-10 weeks, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
The quarterback-turned-tight end reportedly had a strong training camp, with Kempski noting that Jackson could still make the team in spite of his injury. He'll be ruled out for the year if the Eagles place him on injured reserve this preseason, but not if they wait until after the final round of cuts to do so.... See More ... See Less
Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Could make roster as reserve TE
Tyree Jackson has converted to tight end and has a good shot to make the Eagles, especially if Zach Ertz is traded, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Jackson was unable to latch on to an NFL roster as a reserve quarterback, so the 6-foot-7 Buffalo product made the switch to tight end in November 2020. He caught two balls for 32 yards in the Eagles' preseason opener and has shown good hands and the ability to get open while running good routes so far in training camp. The team is likely to keep only three tight ends, and right now Dallas Goedert, Ertz and Richard Rodgers all are listed ahead of Jackson on the depth chart. While an Ertz trade seemingly would assure the 23-year-old Jackson a place on the team, his potential at the new position could entice Philadelphia to keep him over Rodgers if Ertz stays put....

Eagles' Tyree Jackson: Staying with Eagles into 2021
Jackson signed a reserve/future contract with Philadelphia on Thursday.
Jackson led the University of Buffalo to a 10-4 record as the program's starting quarterback in 2018, but the 23-year-old has yet to suit up in an NFL regular-season game since entering the league as an undrafted free agent. The Eagles bring Jackson into 2021, not as a QB, but as a developmental option at tight end.... See More ... See Less
Tyree Jackson: Gets workout call
Jackson tried out for the Packers on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
The rookie out of Buffalo failed to make his hometown Bills out of camp, but he's getting looks elsewhere. Jackson stands at a whopping 6-foot-7 and is seen as more of a developmental prospect at quarterback. The 21-year-old profiles as a practice squad candidate for the time being.... See More ...

Tyree Jackson: Loses out in backup competition
The Bills cut Jackson on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
A local product who went undrafted out of Buffalo, Jackson attended training camp with the hope of securing a spot with the Bills as a developmental quarterback. The 21-year-old apparently didn't make enough of an impression to stick around on the 53-man roster, however, even after completing 22 of 33 attempts for 175 yards and a touchdown in the preseason finale versus Minnesota. The Bills may look to stash him on their practice squad if he goes unclaimed while on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Tyree Jackson: Leads comeback win
Jackson completed 22 of 33 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 27-23 win over Minnesota. He added 77 yards and a touchdown on eight carries, but fumbled twice.
Jackson had his sloppy moments, but his size and athleticism showed big in a game full of third-stringers. He also flashed some moxie late, capping off two touchdown drives in the game's final four minutes. On the first, Jackson scrambled and dove into the end zone for a six-yard score. Next, he stood tall in the pocket and delivered a dart to David Sills for a game-winning eight-yard touchdown. The Bills already have their quarterback of the future in Josh Allen and their steady veteran backup in Matt Barkley. Jackson could use some seasoning on the practice squad, but -- given the similarity in skillsets between he and Allen -- could be the team's future at QB2, though for now he has no chance of passing Barkley in 2019....
