Football Team's William Jackson: Lands deal with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has signed a three-year, $42 million deal with the Washington Football Team, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jackson spent the first four seasons of his career in Cincinnati and proved to be a strong outside corner, leading to this lucrative contract. He heads to Washington with three career interceptions and 41 passes defended across 59 games. Jackson will pair up with Kendall Fuller to make a strong cornerback duo in Washington's secondary for the foreseeable future.

Bengals' William Jackson: Out Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old suffered the concussion during last week's game against the Texans and won't be available for the season finale. Jackson finishes the 2020 campaign with 45 tackles (39 solo), 11 passes defensed and one interception in 14 games, and he's poised to hit free agency in the offseason.

Bengals' William Jackson: Concussion confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game at Houston, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 28-year-old exited late in the second quarter and won't be retaking the field. Jackson will need to clear the concussion protocol to have a chance of suiting up in next week's season finale. LeShaun Sims should see increased work in the secondary for Cincinnati.

Bengals' William Jackson: Getting checked for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is being evaluated by trainers for a potential concussion.

Jackson left the field at the 3:01 mark of the second quarter, and it remains to be seen if Cincinnati will have to proceed without one of its top corners for the remainder of a Week 16 matchup against the Texans. The 28-year-old has missed just one game all season. If he proves unable to return to Sunday's contest, LeShaun Sims may have to become more involved for the Bengals secondary.

Bengals' William Jackson: Full go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Jackson's full participation indicates that he was able to clear the league's concussion protocol and should be on track to suit up Sunday against the Titans.

Bengals' William Jackson: Limited at Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Jackson missed Week 7 due to a concussion, but he appears to be progressing toward his return. The 28-year-old will need to fully clear the concussion protocol before being cleared for game action.

Bengals' William Jackson: Won't face Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional contest against the Browns, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Jackson will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before taking the field, until which time LeShaun Sims or Darius Phillips (illness) will likely draw the start at cornerback. The fifth-year pro normally handles an every-down role in Cincinnati's secondary, making him a difficult player to replace.

Bengals' William Jackson: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Jackson appears to have suffered a concussion during this past Sunday's loss to the Colts, and he'll need to clear the NFL's concussion protocol before he can play in a game. The fifth-year cornerback has played nearly every defensive snap this year and performed quite well in the process, allowing an 81.4 passer rating and just 5.9 yards per target. If he's unable to get healthy in time for Sunday's game, either LeShaun Sims or Darius Phillips (illness) likely will bump into the starting role.

Bengals' William Jackson: Manages full recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) announced Thursday that he's back to full health, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jackson clarified that he spent the entire 2019 campaign playing through a torn labrum in his shoulder. Despite managing a significant injury, he managed to suit up for 14 contests and record 37 total tackles, three defended passes and a lone interception. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, Jackson also said that he would "love to come back" to Cincinnati in 2021, per Wilson.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Jackson (shoulder) on injured reserve Friday.

Jackson's placement on IR was expected after he was initially ruled out for Week 17. The 2016 first-round pick recorded 37 tackles (26 solo), three defended passes and one interception across 14 contests in 2019.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Won't face Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Browns, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Jackson will likely be placed on injured reserve prior to Sunday's season finale. With the fourth-year pro sidelined, B.W. Webb is a candidate to play an expanded role on defense Week 17.

Bengals' William Jackson III: Sustains injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson won't return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins after suffering a right shoulder injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Jackson is an every-snap cornerback, so the Bengals may struggle to fill the void. The 2016 first-round pick has accrued 35 tackles, three pass breakups and an interception this year. B.W. Webb and Greg Mabin should be the main beneficiaries of Jackson's absence.

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.
