Jackson recorded eight tackles in Sunday's 29-7 loss of the Buccaneers.
With the Buccaneers winning in blowout fashion, there were plenty of predictable rushing attempts, which allowed Jackson to have a productive day as a tackler. Although he's not a sure-fire IDP option, he's someone who could emerge quickly as a factor in fantasy leagues.
Jackson (groin) was a full particpant in Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Jackson was limited with a groin injury Wednesday, but it appears as though it was a very minor issue, as he doesn't appear to have been hampered by it Thursday. He should be a full go for Sunday's season opener against the Falcons.
Jackson (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio reports.
This is the first we've heard of Jackson nursing a groin injury. His limitations Wednesday could've been precautionary, however, so his availability for Sunday's season opener likely isn't in question yet.
Jackson's excellent performance in the preseason has him on the verge of locking up the starting free safety job, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Jackson's been making plays since the beginning of training camp, and he's continued to do so through the first two preseason games. Going into this year's draft, teams were concerned about him after he broke his leg last year, and he also suffered a torn ACL in 2014, but the Bears felt he was a high-round talent available late due to health concerns. His main competition at free safety is Quintin Demps, who talked about how quickly Jackson's learned a complex defense, which has allowed him to be in position to perform at a high level.
Jackson recorded a tackle while also returning two kicks for 13 yards Thursday against the Broncos.
Jackson has been impressive through the early days of camp, as he's competing for a role at free safety. In addition, Jackson and Tarik Cohen both served as punt returners. Should Jackson retain this role during the season, he'll have value in leagues that feature scoring for return yardage. However, until his role on defense is determined, he's not yet worth a roster spot in IDP leagues.
