  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Will play at Houston

    Jackson (ankle) participated at full capacity in practice Friday and will be available Week 4 at Houston. Jackson has been able to play in only one of the Chargers' three games so far this season as he continues to deal with inflammation and soreness as a result of a procedure he underwent on his ankle in mid-August. The Pro Bowler's availability will be a huge boost to the entire Chargers defense in Week 4.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Logs limited practice

    Jackson (ankle) was listed as a limited participant during practice Wednesday. Jackson is still dealing with inflammation and soreness following an ankle surgery undergone in mid-August. After suiting up in Week 2, the Pro Bowl cornerback was ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's loss to Jacksonville, leaving Michael Davis to start in his place. Since it's unclear how much this issue may limit him moving forward, it will be worth monitoring Jackson's injury status heading into Sunday's game against Houston.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Dealing with inflammation

    Coach Brandon Staley said Monday that Jackson is dealing with inflammation in his surgically repaired ankle, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Jackson underwent ankle surgery in August and is apparently still dealing with some residual effects from the procedure. He's missed two of the first three weeks of the season, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Sunday's matchup in Houston after sitting out the Chargers' Week 3 loss to Jacksonville.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Inactive Sunday

    Jackson (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Jaguars. Jackson underwent ankle surgery in mid-August and appears to still not be fully recovered. After missing Week 1 he returned to play 100 percent of the snaps in Week 2, but then failed to take part in practice this week. In his absence, Michael Davis will likely draw the start, while Jackson will aim to return in Week 4 against the Texans.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Listed as doubtful for Week 3

    Jackson (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars. Jackson made his 2022 debut in Week 2 following mid-August ankle surgery. However, the 26-year-old still appears to be dealing with the after-effects of the procedure and was sidelined at practice Wednesday-Friday. At first, Chargers head coach Brandon Staley was content saying the Pro Bowl cornerback was 'just sore," but it's certainly alarming to see Jackson not practicing for an extended period. If Jackson is sidelined, Michael Davis will likely draw another start opposite Asante Samuel.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Sits out due to 'soreness'

    Chargers coach Brandon Staley said that Jackson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday while dealing with "residual soreness" following last Thursday's game against the Chiefs, Bridget Condon of NFL Network reports. Jackson made his 2022 debut in Week 2 following ankle surgery undergone in mid-August. However, the 26-year-old still appears to be dealing with the after-effects of this procedure given his lack of participation during the Bolts' practice Wednesday. While Staley did add that Jackson is "good, just sore," it will still be worth monitoring the Pro Bowl cornerback's injury status heading into Sunday's matchup against Jacksonville.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Suits up Thursday

    Jackson (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs. It remains to be seen if Jackson will handle a full allotment of snaps Thursday after sitting out the Chargers' season opener, but the return of the playmaking cornerback -- who racked up 17 picks over the last two seasons while with New England -- at least should provide the Los Angeles secondary with a nice boost as the unit looks to contain Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes-led passing attack Week 2.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Expected to play Thursday

    Jackson (ankle) is expected to play Thursday night against Kansas City, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Official confirmation of the cornerback's Week 2 status will arrive upon the release of the Chargers' inactives ahead of Thursday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but Jackson's looming addition to the mix no doubt would provide a boost to the team's secondary versus a Chiefs offense led by Patrick Mahomes.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Questionable for Week 2

    Jackson (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Chiefs. Jackson couldn't suit up in the Chargers' Week 1 win over the Raiders but upgraded to limited participation in Tuesday's walk-through practice. The 26-year-old's final status for Thursday's game could come down to the wire. Of course, having Jackson on the field would be a huge boon as the team attempts to contain Patrick Mahomes, who threw five touchdowns against a depleted Cardinals secondary Week 1.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Week 2 status up in the air

    Jackson (ankle) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report. Due to the quick turnaround for Thursday's game against the Chiefs, the Chargers held a walk-through session Tuesday, but Jackson would have had his reps capped had the team conducted a traditional practice. Per Bridget Condon of NFL Network, head coach Brandon Staley said the 26-year-old cornerback will take part in jogging Wednesday to test his ankle, which should give the Chargers a better indication of whether Jackson has a chance to play Thursday. If Jackson is sidelined for a second straight game to begin the season, Michael Davis and Bryce Callahan should see increased roles in the Chargers secondary.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Listed as non-participant

    Jackson (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimation. Jackson was unavailable for Sunday's win over the Raiders due to his ankle injury, and coach Brandon Staley described the cornerback's chances of playing during Thursday's Week 2 matchup against Kansas City as "50/50." Jackson's listing on Monday's practice estimation isn't encouraging, and he'll presumably need to practice in some capacity Tuesday or Wednesday if he hopes to make his season debut Thursday.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Considered 50/50 for Thursday

    Coach Brandon Staley described Jackson's (ankle) chances of playing Thursday against the Chiefs as "50/50," Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Jackson sat out Los Angeles' Week 1 win over the Raiders and is hoping to heal up in time to face another AFC West rival. If the short week provides enough time for Jackson to complete his recovery, his addition to the Chargers' secondary would provide welcome reinforcements against an explosive Kansas City passing game led by Patrick Mahomes, who threw five touchdowns in Week 1.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Expected to sit Week 1

    Jackson (ankle), who is listed as doubtful for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Raiders, isn't expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Given his designation, Jackson's expected absence from the Week 1 lineup comes as little surprise. As Jackson continues to work his way back from mid-August ankle surgery, Los Angeles will have to lean on Asante Samuel, Michael Davis and Bryce Callahan to cover the likes of Davante Adams, Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Doubtful for Week 1

    Jackson (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus Las Vegas, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Jackson underwent surgery on his ankle in mid-August, and at this point it looks like he'll probably need at least one more week to fully recover. Assuming Jackson doesn't play versus the Raiders, Asante Samuel, Michael Davis and Bryce Callahan will be tasked with trying to contain Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow.

  • Chargers' J.C. Jackson: Lands massive deal with Chargers

    Jackson and the Chargers agreed Monday on a five-year, $82.5 million contract that includes $40 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. After the Patriots opted not to use their franchise tag on him earlier this month, Jackson became the top cornerback available on the open market. One of the league's premier ballhawks since entering the NFL in 2018, Jackson recorded 25 interceptions over his first four seasons, and his eight picks in 2021 surpassed the Chargers' entire total as a team (seven). He'll be part of an up-and-coming Los Angeles secondary that includes three recent early round draft picks in safeties Derwin James and Nasir Adderley and cornerback Asante Samuel.

  • Patriots' J.C. Jackson: Expected to hit free agency

    The Patriots are not expected to apply their franchise tag on Jackson, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. The report notes that the franchise tag for cornerbacks is expected to top $17 million in 2022 and it looks like the team is inclined to let the ball-hawk test the free-agent market. While the Patriots would no doubt prefer to retain Jackson, such an outcome would hinge on him being amenable to re-signing in New England at the right salary/terms. In any case, there will be no lack of interest in Jackson's services if he indeed hits free agency, with the 26-year-old having racked up 17 interceptions over the last two seasons.

  • Patriots' J.C. Jackson: Claims monthly honor

    Jackson was named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Month on Thursday after he recorded six tackles, four interceptions, one forced fumble and two additional pass breakups while also scoring a touchdown across the Patriots' four November games. Thanks to his big November, Jackson is up to seven interceptions on the season, trailing only Dallas' Trevon Diggs (eight) for the NFL lead.
