"That's good enough speed for me to get out here and work," Jackson said following minicamp practice Tuesday.
Jackson missed nearly two weeks of OTA sessions because of a strained hamstring. He returned last week and looked better Tuesday.
DeSean Jackson back at practice
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (6/11/14) Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson returned to practice this week after spending last week on the sideline nursing a strained hamstring, reports the Washington Post.
Jackson tweaked his hamstring two weeks ago, and he sat out last week’s session while allowing it to heal. He went through a full practice Wednesday, and he didn't report any problems following practice.
"He feels good running straight, it’s just sometimes coming out of cuts that he's sometimes tentative, but we're watching him," coach Jay Gruden said. "Obviously, we hoped he could run this week. That’s why we kept him out last week. It was good to see him out there pushing it. ... He's still probably not 100 percent yet. He's still working through a little bit of pain a little bit."
Injury might keep DeSean Jackson out next week
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (6/6/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's unsure if receiver DeSean Jackson will participate in OTAs next week due to a hamstring injury, reports CSNWashington.com. Gruden said he doesn't Jackson to rush back and aggravate the injury.
Washington is scheduled to hold OTAs Monday through Thursday.
"The funniest thing, man: all this stuff like he's not a locker room player, he don't get along with his teammates, the people that really know me, they’re like, 'Man where is all this coming from?'" Jackson said, via the Washington Post. "I had teammates texting me and hitting me up, teammates that's still on the Eagles right now, like, 'What were they talking about you ain't a team guy, you don't get along with people in your locker room?' Everybody in the locker room loved me, you feel me?"

No one wants to draft a bust. Dave Richard guides you through 10 players who could put a crater in your Fantasy lineup this season.
DeSean Jackson had a career season with the Eagles in 2013, and he was rewarded for it by being cut due to apparent differences with coach Chip Kelly and management. The Redskins signed Jackson, and he will immediately become their No. 2 receiver behind Pierre Garcon and deep threat for Robert Griffin III. Jackson had career highs in catches (82) and yards (1,332) in 2013, and he matched his career high for touchdowns. His value will take a hit going to the Redskins since 2013 was the first time he was the clear-cut No. 1 option (he previously shared that role with Jeremy Maclin). We’re expecting him to post stats similar to his production prior to 2013, which was around 55 catches, 950 yards and five touchdowns on average. He should be drafted as a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver worth a pick in Round 5 or 6. The touchdowns should be better than his average prior to 2013, but don’t be surprised if he falls below 1,000 yards and has fewer than 60 catches with this move to Washington.
