49ers' Asa Jackson: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Jackson played just one defensive snap this season, as he was relegated mainly to special teams duties, so his departure shouldn't affect fantasy owners. The 49ers replaced Jackson's roster vacancy with the signing of 32-year-old cornerback Leon Hall.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was added to the 49ers' 53-man roster Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was waived by the Ravens on Saturday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports.

Jackson was waived after the team added tight end Nick Boyle to their active roster, as he was returning from suspension.

He presumably will end up back on the practice squad if he clears waivers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

Jackson has been on the Ravens' practice squad since mid-October, so the defensive back should have a good understanding of the defensive. However, the 26-year-old could make a more immediate impact on special teams as he has proven his return capabilities throughout the preseason.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cardinals' Asa Jackson: Won't suit up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (foot) won't suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Raiders, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Stalwarts of the secondary like Patrick Peterson (ankle) and Justin Bethel (foot) entered training camp with injury concerns, opening the door for reserve DBs to stake a claim to a role. While rookie Brandon Williams has done just that, Jackson was listed as a third-stringer on the Cardinals' first unofficial depth chart. The injury may have played a part, but Jackson will have to show in the three remaining exhibitions in order to land on the 53-man roster.

Ravens' Asa Jackson: Rejoining Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was signed by the Ravens on Tuesday.

Selected by the Ravens in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Jackson was suspended twice during his first stint in Baltimore, and he failed to make the final roster this year. With the team once again desperate for help at cornerback, Jackson might actually see the field in Week 6. He's shown some promise as a return man, but his work as a cornerback has been far from impressive.
