Jackson recorded four total tackles and an interception in Sunday's 13-12 loss to Buffalo.
Jackson turned in a key interception after a pass intended for Andre Holmes popped into the air into Jackson's waiting arms late in the fourth quarter. He now has two interceptions for the season as well as four passes defensed. Both marks are improvements over his rookie campaign, indicating Jackson has taken well to his role as a key member of the team's secondary.
Jackson (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson suffered a concussion during the Titans' Week 3 tilt against the Jaguars but appears on track to play against the Eagles on Sunday. Knowing the league's stance on head injuries it wouldn't be surprising if Jackson's availability was to come in to question, so the 2017 first-rounder's status is still worth monitoring as Week 4 progresses.
Jackson is ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a concussion, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Jackson will be replaced by Rishard Matthews as Tennessee's punt returner for the remainder of Sunday's contest. The 2017 first-rounder will work to clear the league's concussion protocol in time to suit up for Week 4's contest.
Jackson recorded six tackles and intercepted a pass in Week 2 against Houston.
Jackson picked off Deshaun Watson early in the second quarter as he targeted DeAndre Hopkins on a deep pass to the end zone. It was the first interception of Jackson's career, though he managed 17 passes defensed in his rookie campaign. He has worked primarily as an outside corner through the first two weeks, with Logan Ryan covering the slot receiver in most cases.
In addition to starting all 16 games at cornerback and serving as Tennessee's kick and punt returner, the 2017 first-round pick played 12 snaps on offense as a rookie, taking five carries for 55 yards. The offseason signing of Malcolm Butler might push Jackson back to the nickelback role, which in turn would decrease his snap count and leave him with more energy to help on offense. Of course, the Titans may not have any real interest in the idea, considering they're already in good shape in the backfield with Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis. The 22-year-old was a contributor in all three phases at USC, but he focused on defense and the return game his final season, getting just nine offensive touches.
