Redskins' Gruden: DeSean Jackson (shoulder) still not 100 percent


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2015) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who has been sidelined about three weeks due to a sprained shoulder, is still not 100 percent, coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday.

Gruden said he will not put Jackson in pads until he is 100 percent. He did participate in individual drills Tuesday, per ESPN.

Despite being sidelined, Jackson expects to be ready for the start of the regular season.

“I think I’ll be ready to go,” Jackson said, per the team's official website. “You won’t have to worry about me at all. I’ll be the same person I’ve always been, making plays and being the guy that brings the energy to this team.”

Jackson is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. In his first year with Washington in 2014, he totaled 56 catches for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games. He averaged 20.9 yards per catch, which was the second-highest average of his career.

Gruden noted that Jackson did not run into a sled during Thursday's practice, but landed on his shoulder in front of the sled, causing the injury. 

"He just landed on it," Gruden said, adding that Jackson could be back sooner depending on his pain tolerance. 


Reports: Redskins WR DeSean Jackson separates shoulder running into sled

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson returns to OTA's, explains time missed


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/3/2015) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson was missing in action during last week's organized team activities, but he's made his presence felt this week, per The Washington Post.

Jackson explained he missed all of last week because of personal issues he had to tend to and that he communicated with his coaches why he would miss the time.

“I had personal things I had to do back home,” Jackson said. “I’m a veteran in this league, going on my eighth year. Communication with my head coach and the guys here, they knew about it. Like I said, I had things I had to do, I was obligated to do back home in California. I’m here now, and I’m happy to be here with my teammates, and they’ve been putting in some great work, so I’m just trying to catch up and get back in the swing of things. But I had things I had to handle.”

Jackson, who led the team with 1,169 receiving yards and six touchdowns last year, said he was not phased by the time missed, and that his familiarity with the offense would help him bounce right back into the flow of things.

“I’m very familiar with the offense, the system, so it’s not like I have to re-learn something that I already know. I came back, I’m in the flow of things. I’m still starting wide receiver on this team. I’m just happy to be here, happy to be putting the work in and being around the fellows again.”


Redskins WR DeSean Jackson: I will join team next week


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Redskins veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson is not participating Tuesday in OTAs, but he has stated that he will join the team next week, per SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Redskins leave RG3 off of letter to season-ticket owners


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Either it was a simple mistake or an indication of how the Redskins truly feel about quarterback Robert Griffin III.

In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.

"Head Coach Jay Gruden, new General Manager Scot McCloughan, and Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of Ryan Kerrigan, DeSean Jackson, plus Pro Bowlers Trent Williams and Alfred Morris. The Redskins are poised to rebound next season!" the letter read, via The Washington Post.

Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.

Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.

Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.


Redskins' DeSean Jackson scores touchdown in loss to Cowboys


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson scored his six touchdown of the season during the Redskins’ 44-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

Jackson scored on a 69-yard touchdown pass from Robert Griffin III during the first quarter. It was Jackson’s eighth reception of 50 or more yards this season which led the NFL. The touchdown was the lone highlight for Jackson, who finished the game with two receptions for 86 yards on three targets.


Redskins' DeSean Jackson goes off for 126 yards vs. former club


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson turned in an impressive performance against his former club, registering his sixth 100-yard game of the season in Saturday's 27-24 victory over Philadelphia.

Jackson came down with a 51-yard reception in the first quarter and a 55-yard grab in the third quarter. Both catches came while being covered by Bradley Fletcher. He was targeted six times and finished with four catches for 126 yards. Jackson surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the fourth time in his career. He has 54 catches for 1,083 and five touchdowns this season. 

Washington will face Dallas in Week 17.


QB situation still harming Washington's wide receivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Though the Redskins got a solid performance out of Robert Griffin III in Week 15, their two main wide receivers, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson didn't benefit.

Jackson, who made his return from a shin injury Sunday, had just three receptions for 15 yards, despite being targeted eight times. He led the team in targets, one ahead of Garcon, who had just four catches of his own for 36 yards. That coming off a nine-catch, 95-yard showing last week.

Both players have shown the ability to be productive, but the inconsistent quarterback play has hurt them this season. Whether Griffin or Colt McCoy gets the starting nod in Week 16, neither player should be viewed as more than a low-end starting option against the Eagles, though both players had 100-plus yards and a touchdown in a prior meeting.
