Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson will miss Sunday's game against the Vikings, sources confirmed to CSN.

Washington coach Jay Gruden explained that Jackson is still dealing with pain in his shoulder, an injury sustained two weeks ago during the Redskins tie against the Bengals in London.

Jackson was at the Redskins facility on Thursday to get treatment on the shoulder but did not practice. He also missed Wednesday's practice session. Throughout this season, Jackson has missed practices, but has not missed any of Washington's eight games.

"He was getting checked out today, got some extra treatment," Gruden said. "Got the MRI, we got the results and he's just dealing with a bit of pain right now."

On Wednesday, Kirk Cousins talked about trying to connect more with Jackson, but the quarterback said that the receiver must be healthy to get more receptions.

"It was tough in the second half of the Bengals game because we were throwing the ball so much and he was out with an injury," Cousins said. "Had DeSean been healthy, he’d be out there making those plays."

On the season, Jackson has 30 catches for 416 yards and one touchdown. Last season, Jackson missed six games with injury. His last full 16-game season came in 2013, when he caught 82 balls for more than 1,300 yards and nine touchdowns.
