Redskins WR DeSean Jackson discusses injury, timeline for return

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson said he knew right away that his hamstring injury was a significant one.  

“I never had to deal with feeling an injury [that] popped like this,” Jackson said. “I was definitely worried because I never felt that before, with a pop in my hamstring. I definitely knew that wasn’t good.”

Since Jackson signed in Washington last year, he’s sprained both shoulders, suffered a bruised shin and now has a pulled hamstring. In all, he's missed one game and left at least three others with injuries.  

“I’ve never really been a hamstring guy,” Jackson said Wednesday. “I never really had too many hamstring problems. It’s kinda new for me."

He added: “I was just running around [cornerback Brent] Grimes. He kinda reached for me and I kinda tried to reach out of it, and [the hamstring] just grabbed on me. It’s part of the game. Injuries happen. It’s just unfortunate but you have to deal with it. But I’ll do everything I need to do to get back right.”

Jackson, who got hurt on the Redskins’ second series against the Dolphins, acknowledged that missing the preseason while rehabbing a shoulder injury might have contributed to the hamstring pull.

“It probably had a little bit to do with it,” Jackson said. “But with the time I was given, I thought I did a good job [of getting into football shape].”

Jackson also said that he agrees with the timeline of about a month, though he hopes he'll return to full health in less time.

“Maybe two to four [weeks],” Jackson said. “But you never know. It might speed up a little faster. It might go a little slower. You never know. But hopefully I can get back faster [rather] than longer.”

One of the players the Redskins will rely on to replace Jackson is Rashad Ross, one of Jackson’s close friends and one of the team’s fastest players. But don’t suggest to Jackson that Ross might be faster.  

“He’s like my little brother,” Jackson cracked. “I don’t think he’s ready to crown that yet. He’s still got some years. But, nah, he’s got some speed on him, though.”

2018 Power Rankings: Patriots prove they still got it, Rams remain top dog

In a thriller in Foxboro, the Patriots handed Kansas City its first loss of the season.

It wasn't pretty but the Rams slipped past the Broncos to remain the lone unbeaten in the NFL.

Remember when the Lions beat New England on Sunday Night Football and folks were ready to bury the Patriots? Yeah... how did that 'hot take' work out?

Will the real Redskins please stand up? A win over the Panthers moved the Skins up three spots. Give the Redskins this, they are consistently unpredictable.

The Ravens are on the rise and Marcus Mariota is happy the Titans won't have to play Baltimore again.

So the Cowboys have an offense now? Or does Jacksonville not have an elite defense anymore?

And the Bears let Brock Osweiler throw for 380 yards. Yes. You read that correct. 380 yards. 

How far will the Bears drop because of that dreadful defensive performance?
