Jackson logged five tackles (all solo), one pass defended and one interception during Sunday's 42-28 win over the Buccaneers.
Jackson logged another solid performance Week 9, picking off quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick late in the fourth quarter to shut down any hopes of a Buccaneers' comeback. The second-round pick is now tied with D.J. Swearinger for the league lead in interceptions, and will look to record continue building upon an outstanding rookie year during Thursday's game against the Steelers.
Jackson recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over Baltimore.
Jackson's sack was the first of his career, and his pass defensed gives him six on the season. He's shown to be a quality player, coming in as a second round pick in this years draft. He'll look to continue stacking success as the Panthers take on the Buccaneers in Week 9.
Jackson appears to have suffered a groin injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins. The severity of the starting cornerback's injury remains unclear, but expect an update on Jackson's health if he is unable to fully participate in practice leading up to Carolina's Week 7 matchup against Philadelphia.
Jackson (groin) is listed as active Week 3 against Cincinnati.
Jackson only logged one limited practice this week, but the team saw enough in pregame warmups to allow the rookie to suit up for the home matchup. Opposing quarterbacks have been targeting Jackson through the first two games, and that's been beneficial for his counting stats. The second-round pick out of LSU already has 12 combined tackles, an interception and a forced fumble on the season.
Jackson (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
Jackson did not practice Wednesday and Thursday, but the team feels confident enough to give him the questionable tag regardless. Corn Elder and Captain Munnerlyn would be in line for increased roles if Jackson is ultimately unable to play.
