Panthers' Donte Jackson: Turbulent third season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson finished the 2020 season with 34 tackles (22 solo) and three interceptions on 11 passes defended in 14 games played.

The hope was Jackson would fill James Bradberry's shoes as Carolina's top cornerback following the veteran's free-agent departure last offseason. While Jackson responded with two interceptions in his first three games, he was plagued by a toe injury afterward, hurting his performance. Overall, the usually speedy cornerback played just over half of the Panthers' defensive snaps, and although, he still posted a new career high in pass breakups, Jackson also saw his tackle total decline for a second straight year. The mercurial former second-rounder will now enter the final season of his rookie contract in hopes of a healthy and productive 2021 campaign.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday he expects Jackson to play in Sunday's game against Denver, so this news certainly helps confirm that notion. Jackson has missed the last two games with the toe issue, and his return to the lineup should help bolster the secondary. It's unclear what sort of role Jackson will have for the contest, but he's racked up 18 tackles (12 solo), six pass breakups and three interceptions through 10 games this campaign.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Coach expects Week 14 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, but coach Matt Rhule said that he expects Jackson to play Sunday against Denver, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Jackson has missed the last two games with his toe injury, but his coach is optimistic that the cornerback will return in time to bolster Carolina's secondary for a favorable matchup with a Denver offense that has thrown a league-high 21 interceptions this season. The 2018 second-round pick has recorded at least three interceptions in each of his first three NFL seasons, including this one.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Ruled out for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Jackson was initially considered doubtful, so this news isn't surprising. The 2018 second-round pick will miss a second straight game as a result. He'll aim to recover during the Week 13 bye in hopes of returning for a Week 14 matchup against Denver. For the time being, Troy Pride is expected to start at cornerback.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Jackson is poised to miss a second straight game with a toe injury that has been nagging him all year. If he is indeed inactive, the third-year cornerback will look to utilize the Week 13 bye to come back fully healthy for a Week 14 clash against the Broncos. Troy Pride is expected to start Sunday.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

The 25-year-old sat out Sunday's win over the Lions after aggravating the toe injury Week 10, Jackson has dealt with the injury for most of the season, though Sunday was the first time he was inactive in 2020. Troy Pride and Corn Elder should have increased defensive roles while Jackson is unavailable.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Out against Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson has dealt with this toe injury for nearly two months, and while he didn't miss a game, the third-year cornerback consistently aggravated the injury and finished with fewer than 50 percent of the snaps in four of the last eight games. He'll be shut down for now in hopes of returning at full strength. Troy Pride and Corn Elder figure to see an uptick in usage until Jackson returns.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Doubtful for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson has been playing through this injury for a while but seemed to hurt it further in the last game and will likely have to miss additional time as a result. Corn Elder will likely bump up to a starting role if Jackson sits.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Misses practice with toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) didn't practice Wednesday, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson aggravated a previous toe injury in last week's loss to Tampa Bay, and considering he's been bothered by the injury for most of the season, it's possible the team will opt to give the cornerback some time to get healthier before he steps back on the field. If Jackson's unable to raise his practice participation over the next two days, he'll likely sit out Sunday against the Lions.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Could be sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Rhule said that Jackson "re-aggravated" his toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Jackson's a starting cornerback for the Panthers and has suited up in all 10 games so far, but he's played more than 50 percent of the defensive snaps on just four occasions due to his recurring toe injury. Rhule relayed that the team is looking at its options when asked whether they'd sit him going forward, and that may be necessary to finally get Jackson to 100 percent.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Toe remains bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a toe injury, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

The 25-year-old appeared to be clear of the turf toe as he practiced with no limitations this week, but it's apparently still an issue. Jackson is likely to finish the day with two total tackles.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) logged a full practice Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson's return to practice coupled with coach Matt Rhule's optimism regarding the cornerback's injury earlier in the week pave the way for Jackson to suit up Sunday against the Chiefs. He'll need to be at the top of his game to help slow down a high-octane Kansas City passing attack that produced five touchdowns last week.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Coach hopeful about Week 9 status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Rhule said Monday that Jackson (toe) feels good, and Rhule's hopeful that Jackson will practice Wednesday, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

While Rhule's optimistic that Jackson will play Sunday in Kansas City, the coach cautioned that toe injuries are tricky. If the cornerback's able to return to practice as his coach suggests, that would go a long way toward helping him suit up come game day.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Nabs another INT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) finished with three solo tackles and an interception in Thursday night's 25-17 loss to the Falcons.

Jackson had an inconsistent outing while continuing to deal with his toe injury, but he at least forced another turnover. In eight games, Jackson has now defended six passes and claimed three interceptions, helping compensate for some of his struggles in coverage.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Questionable to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Falcons with a toe injury, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Jackson was dealing with a toe injury prior to Week 7, indicating this may be a tweak of a previous ailment. As long as Jackson is out, Corn Elder figures to see increased snaps at cornerback.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is active for Sunday's game versus the Saints, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson has battled this toe injury all season, and although he hasn't missed a game, he's been on a pitch count nearly every contest. He's averaged just 28.3 defensive snaps per contest over the past four games, but he handled a 50 percent snap share last week against the Bears. The LSU product will look to stay on the field in this divisional clash, but he's tough to depend on in IDP fantasy formats, even though he's posted five pass breakups and two interceptions.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Should suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

With the exception of Rasul Douglas (reserve/COVID-19 list), Carolina should have its entire cornerback group available Week 7, as Eli Apple (questionable, hamstring) is also expected to dress. Look for Jackson to spend most of the day shadowing Tre'Quan Smith, who is slated to serve as the Saints' No. 1 wideout with Michael Thomas (hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (reserve/COVID-19 list) sidelined.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Jackson has described his issue as a nagging toe injury, but he played through it last week against the Bears and will likely be able to give it a go Sunday barring a setback. He participated on a limited basis in all three of Carolina's practices this week.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Managing toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice. "The toe is getting there. Just have to be smart with it," Jackson said.

Jackson was quick to call the toe issue a nagging injury, as it could affect his change of direction and cuts on defense. The injury is likely to hamper him for a while, but expect the second-year pro to fight through the pain. If Jackson was to suffer a setback, Eli Apple or Troy Pride would be in line for the start at cornerback opposite Rasul Douglas.

Panthers' Donte Jackson: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (toe) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson was injured on the first snap of last week's win over the Falcons, but he managed to practice in a limited fashion all week and will suit up for this NFC showdown. The third-year cornerback has allowed an 83.8 passer rating when targeted this year, and he could be responsible for covering Allen Robinson during Sunday's clash.
