Jackson (knee) does not carry an injury designation heading into Saturday's game against the Jets.
Jackson dealt with a minor knee injury that kept him limited in practice earlier this week, but his availability for Saturday's tilt is no longer in danger. He's slated to start at corner across from Johnathan Joseph, though Shareece Wright and Aaron Colvin could see increased roles if Jackson were to suffer a setback.
Jackson was limited during Tuesday's practice with a knee injury.
Jackson's name popped up on the injury report following Tuesday's session, but the extent of the injury remains unclear. Barring any regressions before Saturday, the nine-year veteran projects to play. Jackson's situation is somewhat fluid and deserves to be monitored, but there's a good chance Houston is taking cautious measures to ensure his availability on a short week.
Jackson recorded nine tackles (eight solo), including a sack, and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the Redskins.
Jackson's nine tackles tied his season high, and his sack was his first of the year. He has 60 tackles through 10 games, putting him just 13 tackles shy of his career-high. Looking ahead, Jackson and the Texans take on the Titans in Week 12.
Jackson made nine tackles -- one for a loss -- in Thursday's 42-23 win over the Dolphins.
This performance matches Jackson's season high and leaves him with 47 tackles on the year. If he keeps up this pace, Jackson will eclipse the career-high 73 tackles he notched in 2017. He'll have a matchup in Denver in Week 9.
Jackson was shaken up after an aggressive tackle but was able to return to Thursday's win over the Dolphins, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Jackson was assisted to the sidelines by trainers and examined in the medical tent late in the first half. He was cleared and back in the game for the second half and finished with a team-high nine tackles. Already a vital piece in the secondary, Jackson became even more so when Johnathan Joseph left Thursday's game with an ankle injury.
