“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.

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

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson dealing with finger issue
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/2/15) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a dislocated finger during Saturday's practice and is having the injury further evaluated Sunday, reports The Washington Post.
Jackson caught 56 passes for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns last season.
DeSean Jackson's first season in Washington was a success for Fantasy owners, and hopefully he can build on that performance this year. Jackson had 56 catches for 1,169 yards and six touchdowns on 94 targets. His production declined from his career year in Philadelphia in 2013, but that was expected. Still, he showed he can still be a viable Fantasy option, and he had double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league eight times. He will again remain the No. 1 receiver for the Redskins, and we consider him a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. He's worth drafting in Round 4 in standard formats and Round 5 in PPR leagues.
