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.
The Eagles released Jackson on Wednesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 31-year-old is still an effective defensive tackle, but he ended up being a cap casualty. Jackson suited up in 15 games (six starts) for the Eagles in 2020, recording 28 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two pass breakups.
Jackson recorded 28 tackles (15 solo), 2.5 sacks, two defensed passes and one fumble recovery across 15 games in 2020.
Jackson finished with the lowest tackle total of his career (min. 10 games played), aside from his rookie year in 2012. The 30-year-old did stay mostly healthy, however, only missing a single contest due to a concussion. The veteran also saw his workload steadily drop to around fifty percent of defensive snaps down the stretch of the season, making him an unlikely option for high-end fantasy value in IDP formats come 2021. Still, he could provide a relatively steady floor.
Jackson (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
The 30-year-old sustained the concussion during last week's win over the Saints, but he was able to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol. Jackson has played about half the defensive snaps since the Week 9 bye and should have a similar workload Sunday.
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.
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.
Jackson was forced out of Sunday's 24-21 win over the Saints and was evaluated for a head injury, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
If Jackson has indeed been placed in the five-step concussion protocol, he won't be eligible to retake the field until garnering full clearance. Javon Hargrave would be a candidate to start at defensive tackle if Jackson is forced to miss time.
Jackson (quadriceps) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.
Jackson was a limited participant Wednesday while managing the quad injury, so he appears on track for a return in Week 10. The veteran has supplied 13 tackles (six solo) and 1.5 sacks this season, so expect him to work back into the defensive line rotation for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Giants.
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.
Jackson (quadriceps) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Dallas.
Jackson wasn't on the injury report after missing last week's game with a quadriceps injury, but he appears to have aggravated that injury against the Cowboys. Javon Hargrave will likely take Jackson's spot on the interior of Philadelphia's defensive line.
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.
Jackson (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Giants.
This news comes as no surprise considering Jackson's expected to miss two weeks due to the quadriceps injury he suffered in last week's loss to Baltimore. Javon Hargrave and Hassan Ridgeway should be the beneficiaries of Jackson's absence from a playing time perspective.
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.
Jackson (quadriceps) was ruled out of the remainder of Sunday's game against the Ravens, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.
With the game out of reach, Jackson was ruled out of the game late in the fourth quarter. He'll look to get healthy, quickly, as the team will host the Giants on Thursday night. For the remainder of Sunday's game, look for Javon Hargrave to take over at one of the defensive tackle positions.
Jackson (foot) was a full participant during Wednesday's training camp session, Daniel Gallen of Penn Live reports.
The veteran dealt with a Lisfranc foot injury in Week 1 and ended up spending the entire season on IR. Jackson was spotted taking reps with the first-team defense Wednesday, so he could be in line for a decent role this upcoming season now that he's healthy. The 30-year-old had 32 tackles (25 solo) and 3.5 sacks through 16 games with Jacksonville in 2018.
Jackson (foot) is expected to be cleared for action by April or May, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Jackson sustained a Lisfranc foot injury in Week 1 and was subsequently placed on IR. At this rate, he appears on track for most, if not all, of the offseason program, and he should be full-go by training camp. Jackson's last full season was in 2018, when he accrued 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks through 16 games with the Jaguars.
Jackson (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
Jackson already was expected to miss the rest of the season due to a Lisfranc injury, so his move to IR was just a matter of time. The 29-year-old joined Philadelphia this offseason on a three-year, $30 million deal after being let go by Jacksonville. Tim Jernigan and Hassan Ridgeway figure to see increased reps at defensive tackle in his absence.
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.
Jackson (leg) may need surgery and could be done for the season, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Even if he isn't out for the year, Jackson is expected to miss games. He was carted off the field in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 32-27 win over Washington, making an early exit from his first regular-season appearance with the Eagles. The 29-year-old defensive tackle signed a three-year, $30 million contract in March, following six consecutive seasons with three or more sacks. His upcoming absence leaves more snaps for Timmy Jernigan and Hassan Ridgeway.
Jackson said following Sunday's contest against the Redskins that he has a left foot injury, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
The 29-year-old was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter Sunday and could be dealing with a more serious injury. Jackson did go on to say he didn't want to speculate what sort of injury he's dealing with and was seen sporting a walking boot following the game, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. Jackson likely will undergo further evaluation before the team announces any more specifics on his injury.
