DeSean Jackson Sustains Ankle Injury

Add another name to the growing Eagles injury report.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered an ankle injury after colliding with safeties Jaiquawn Jarrett and Kurt Coleman during Friday’s practice on an errant throw from Michael Vick. He had his left ankle wrapped and briefly returned to action, but did not finish practice. According to an Eagles spokesman, there doesn’t appear to be any need for an MRI and he should be back in a day or so.

Fletcher Cox did not practice on Friday. He was excused for personal reasons.

There were plenty of injured Eagles players working off on the side. Todd Herremans (shoulder), Trent Cole (A.C. joint), Jamar Chaney (hamstring), Jason Babin (calf), Nate Allen (hamstring) and O.J. Atogwe (groin) all went through light conditioning away from the rest of their teammates. Not amongst the active injured was Brent Celek (knee), who continues to be sidelined after a very brief appearance here at camp.

Evan Mathis is reportedly dealing with vertigo and did not participate in Friday’s session.

    You guys are doing a great job covering the Eagles. The content is insightful and timely. The only thing I worry about is the blog’s longevity if Philly Magazine does not figure out how to monetize it better. They cannot pay the two of you what you are worth and make any money on their investment in your compensation with their current business approach. The ads don’t make sense for the demographics of the readers and there are no sponsorships. You should tell the business guys to do as good a job as you are on creating “go to” content
