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.

It's unlikely Jackson returns to the game since he left with just minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. The 29-year-old made one tackle before exiting the contest, and he'll look to shake off this issue before Week 2's matchup versus the Falcons.
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.
Jackson is signing with the Eagles, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Jackson was released by the Jaguars on Friday after playing out three seasons of a six-year, $85.5 million contract. He'll settle for a much smaller sum in his second shot at the open market, with Adam Schefter of ESPN reporting the new deal is for three years and $10 million. Jackson likely will slide in as a starter alongside Fletcher Cox, while fellow defensive tackle Tim Jernigan is set to become a free agent after the Eagles decided not to pick up his option for 2019. The 29-year-old Jackson played all 48 games in his three seasons with Jacksonville, averaging 35 tackles and six sacks per year. The contract sounds like an absolute steal if the initial numbers are indeed correct.
The Jaguars are releasing Jackson on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
Jackson made it through three seasons of a six-year, $85.5 million contract, recording 105 tackles (84 solo) and 18 sacks in 48 games for the Jaguars. Still just 29 years old, he'll be one of the top defensive tackles available in free agency, despite having a down season (3.5 sacks) in 2018.
The Jaguars have been openly shopping Jackson in an effort to trade him prior to the start of the new league year, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The reasoning seems fairly transparent, as the Jaguars are in need of an upgrade at quarterback and don't have a lot of room in the salary cap to pursue many of the top-end options. Entering the 2019 season with a $15 million non-guaranteed salary certainly makes Jackson a candidate to be moved, but with such a high price tag it seems more likely the Jaguars will simply be forced to release the veteran defensive tackle as opposed to finding a willing trade partner.
Jackson recorded four tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss at Houston. He finished the season with 32 tackles (25 solo) and 3.5 sacks over 16 games.
Jackson produced his worst statistical season since 2014 and for the final two weeks of the season, ranked third among Jacksonville's defensive tackles in snap count. The veteran defensive tackle carries a cap hit over $15 million in 2019 and could be released with a dead cap of only $4 million, per Spotrac.com. Jacksonville tabbed a defensive tackle (Taven Bryan) in the first round of last year's draft, meaning the cupboard won't be bare if the Jaguars decide to move on from Jackson.
Jackson recorded his second sack of the season in Sunday's 17-7 win over the Dolphins.
Jackson hasn't started since Week 12 against the Bills and has played only 35 combined snaps the last two weeks. The 28-year-old is currently on pace for his worst statistical season since his rookie year, with only one game remaining in the 2018 season.
Jackson (hamstring) is not present on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Jackson sustained the injury in last Sunday's blowout loss to the Cowboys but apparently had no issues at practice this week. The 28-year-old should take on his usual workload on the Jaguars' defensive line.
Jackson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a hamstring injury, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL reports.
Jackson just recorded his first sack of the season in Week 5 but departed early in this contest. He'll be replaced by Abry Jones.
Jackson recorded three tackles (all solo) and a sack across 41 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Jackson had arguably his best performance of the season, as he reached the quarterback for the first time. The run stuffer will have his hands full this Sunday containing Kareem Hunt, Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs' high-flying offense.
Jackson racked up four tackles (one solo) during Week 1 against the Giants.
Jackson started things off on the right foot with a strong showing in Week 1 coming off a 40-tackle, eight-sack campaign in 2017. He should remain a force on the inside for a Jacksonville defense regarded by many as the best in the league.
Jackson had one solo tackle, one sack and one forced fumble Sunday against the Texans.
Jackson played just 37 of 62 defensive snaps Sunday, and although his stat line wasn't large, the diversity is a nice sign. He now has a career-high eight sacks this season and adds a whopping four forced fumbles. Still, he's a risky IDP option in the championship week with most of his value relying on him getting to the quarterback.
Jackson had two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Colts.
The sack is Jackson's sixth of the season, and he also added a pass break-up. The Jaguars feature another quality matchup against the Seahawks offensive line in Week 14.
Jackson had two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's 19-7 win over the Browns.
Both of Jackson's tackles were for a loss, and he played 44 of 55 defensive snaps. The 27-year-old now has 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over the last four games, as the Jaguars continue to stifle every offense they come up against.
Jackson had two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over the Bengals.
Jackson started the season off slowly but has 2.5 sacks over the past two games as the Jacksonville defense continues to dominate. Halfway through the 2017 season, the 27-year-old has 16 (14 solo), four sacks and a forced fumble.
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.
