Bengals' William Jackson III: Piles up 10 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson posted 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 22-6 win over the Jets.

It was a busy day for the fourth-year cornerback, bringing his tackle total to 31 on the season. Jackson has made improvements in coverage this season with 8.2 yards per target allowed and just one touchdown -- he yielded seven last year. He'll look to slow down the Browns' passing game in Week 14.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Jackson sat out Week 7's loss to the Jaguars, but he now appears to have put his shoulder injury behind him. Barring any setbacks, the 2016 first-round pick is on track to start Sunday versus the Rams.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Out Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Jackson sustained the shoulder injury last week against Baltimore and is facing a multi-week absence, so he was never expected to play this weekend. It ends a streak of 26 straight starts for the 26-year-old. Darqueze Dennard (knee) is expected to be activated off the PUP list to add some depth at cornerback for the Bengals, since Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) is also sidelined.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Facing multi-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is expected to be sidelined for at least the next few weeks due to a shoulder injury, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Jackson has started 26 straight games for the Bengals but could now be out for the rest of October because of the shoulder issue. Tony McRae and B.W. Webb should step into starting roles at cornerback with Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) also looking at an extended absence.

Bengals' William Jackson III: First INT since 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson recorded a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Jackson was leaned on heavily, playing all 72 defensive snaps in this contest. He came through by picking off Jimmy Garoppolo and knocking away another pass. Jackson had double-digit pass breakups in each of his first two seasons, but this was his first interception since 2017.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson III (undisclosed) played 10 defensive snaps during Thursday's 23-13 preseason win over Washington.

Jackson also played two snaps on special teams. He appears recovered from the undisclosed injury suffered during practice last Thursday. The 2016 first-round pick is primed for a starting role in Cincinnati's secondary opposite Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder).

Bengals' William Jackson III: Suffers injury Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson suffered a tweak during Thursday's practice and hasn't suited up since, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

It's unclear what sort of injury Jackson is dealing with at this time, but Hobson was quick to point out it's not considered serious. Expect the team to not rush back one of its top cornerbacks before he's ready, and in his stead, expect B.W. Webb to see an increased share of reps.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Under contract through 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals exercised the fifth-year option on Jackson's contract Wednesday.

Jackson started all 16 games for the Bengals during his third NFL season in 2018, notching 41 tackles, 13 pass breakups and no interceptions. Though he's only produced one turnover thus far in his career, Jackson has received positive marks for his work in coverage and should be locked into a starting role in the Cincinnati secondary through 2020.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Will play vs. Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Jackson received the questionable tag after being a limited practice participant this week, but is all set for Sunday's matchup with Pittsburgh. The 25-year-old will have his hands full as the Bengals' secondary attempts to contain Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is dealing with a knee injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Jackson was a limited participant at practice this week after he apparently sustained the injury in last Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The Bengals can ill afford to be without the 25-year-old as they attempt to contain Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster on Sunday. Tony McRae and Darqueze Dennard would be in line for increased roles if Jackson is ultimately unable to suit up.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Ready to go Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) has avoided the inactive list Sunday against the Ravens.

Jackson has been on the field for 60 or more snaps in four consecutive weeks, picking up the work left behind by the placement of Adam Jones (groin) on IR. Look for a similar workload Sunday, as Jackson is in line to start opposite Dre Kirkpatrick.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Wears questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson has seen an increased workload since Adam Jones (groin) was placed on injured reserve. In his last four games, he's accrued 12 tackles (nine solo) and six pass breakups. If Jackson is unable to play Sunday, expect Tony McRae to see an increased workload in his place.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) practiced without limitations Thursday and is in line to play Sunday against the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Jackson normally provides depth to the Bengals secondary, but with Darqueze Dennard battling a knee injury, he could see an even higher snap count. Still, the second-year pro has accrued 14 tackles, one sack, seven pass breakups and one interception in his limited role. If Dennard is unable to play, see Jackson as a high-risk, high-reward option for Week 12.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Jackson was listed as questionable after putting in a full practice Friday but will not be available Sunday. The Bengals are also without Adam Jones (concussion), with Josh Shaw and KeiVarae Russell likely to serve as the nickel and dime corners.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Holds questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) practiced at full capacity Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Jackson progressed from not practicing Wednesday and being limited Thursday, but he still carries an injury designation because of the possibility of a setback. The second-year pro has been playing a high snap count as the No. 3 Bengals' corner, accruing 14 tackles, one sack, seven pass breakups and a pick-six. If he's unable to play, Josh Shaw and KaiVarae Russell will see an increased snap count.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) isn't practicing Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Jackson sustained a seemingly minor toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Titans so it's possible the Bengals are simply giving him the day off in order to fully recover. His level of participation in practice Thursday and Friday will shed more light on his availability for the Week 11 matchup with the Broncos.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Suffers minor toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is considered probable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans after suffering a toe injury, Cox Media Group's Jay Morrison reports.

Jackson is slated to return to the contest due to the toe injury not being serious, while his brief absence doesn't expect to have much of an impact on the Bengals' defense.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Possible Week 1 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is a candidate to start in Week 1's game against the Ravens due to Adam Jones's one-game suspension, ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell reports.

Jackson has received a lot of reps in the preseason to help make up for missing his entire rookie season with a torn pectoral. His competition for the start is Darqueze Dennard, though both will log significant playing time.

May 18, 2017 08:12 PM
Bengals' William Jackson III: Fully recovered from pectoral injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (pectoral) is fully healed and ready to compete for playing time in 2017, the Associated Press reports.

Jackson didn't log a single snap his rookie season due to the pectoral injury he suffered in the preseason. Now back to full health, he'll compete with Darqueze Dennard, Josh Shaw and Bene Benwikere for playing time behind starters Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick in 2017.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Fully expected to return for spring workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (pectoral) is expected to be full-go for spring workouts, Cincinnati.com reports.

Jackson lost his rookie season to a pectoral tear suffered in practice last August but appears to have recovered nicely. In fact, the Bengals had plans to activate the cornerback from injured reserve before RB Giovani Bernard (knee - ACL) went down in November, prompting the team to change course and use its sole 'Designated for Return' tag on RB Cedric Peerman instead. Since Jackson had come this close to playing, it appears he could already be fully healthy. Thus, it comes as little surprise that he's expected back for spring workouts in April. With No. 1 CB Dre Kirkpatrick an unrestricted free agent and starting complement Adam Jones potentially facing legal discipline, those sessions could be the starting point for Jackson's quest to claim a first-string role in 2017.
