DeSean Jackson torched the Eagles last season. It appears the Eagles will avoid him on Sunday.

DeSean Jackson did not practice this week because of an injured hamstring, so it was highly unlikely he would play on Sunday against the Eagles. However, a more definitive report by ESPN's Britt McHenry emerged that Jackson will not only miss this week's matchup against his former team, he may be out for a while longer.

Jackson destroyed the Eagles last season, especially in the Eages' Week 16 loss in Washington, which essentially closed the casket on the Eagles' season. His numbers against Philly last year:

 DeSean JacksonRec Yards YPC TD 
Week 3117 23.4 
 Week 16126 31.5 
 TOTAL243 27.0 

In training camp, Jackson got beaten up by a tackling sled.

He returned for the Redskins' Week 1 matchup against the Dolphins, but pulled up lame on a deep ball from Kirk Cousins and hasn't played since.
