Philadelphia Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson has struggled with staying on the field this year due to injury, but on Friday head coach Doug Pederson teased a possible return for the three-time Pro Bowler.  

“DeSean’s doing well,” Pederson told reporters. “Again, not going to put a timetable (on him). Optimistic that we get him back, but I want to make sure he’s healthy. But he’s doing well, doing good with everything, the rehab, the whole thing and would love to see him back out before this season ends, for sure.”

Jackson, 34, has caught 13 passes for 155 yards through four games this season.

In his initial return from a hamstring injury earlier in the season he suffered a high ankle sprain and fracture in his leg. Philadelphia placed him on Injured Reserve on Oct. 26.

Jackson also spent three seasons in Washington where he caught 142 passes, 2,702 yards and 14 touchdowns.
