Redskins WR DeSean Jackson Sits Out Practice, Week 3 status unclear

The Redskins began prep for Week 3's matchup against the Giants without their big play receiver on the field.

ASHBURN -- The Washington Redskins returned to practice Wednesday. DeSean Jackson did not and it's not clear when the receiver will return.

Jackson was not dressed and watched his teammates from the sideline three days after Washington's 27-23 loss to Dallas. Coach Jay Gruden announced after practice that Jackson was dealing with a knee and ankle injury suffered Sunday.

“I think it happened around the third quarter," Gruden said. "He started feeling a little pain, but he stayed in the game and finished the game."

As for the plan this week, Gruden said, "But, expectations are, I have no idea. It depends on how he’s feeling tomorrow and the next day. Hopefully he’ll be OK.”

Jackson sat in front of his locker after practice with his bare right foot propped up on a chair. 

Defensive lineman Kendall Reyes (groin) worked on the side field after sitting out Sunday's loss. LB Martrell Spaight (concussion), LT Trent Williams (knee), DL Chris Baker (rib, elbow, toe, knee;),  WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) were all limited. S Deshazor Everett (knee), LB Su’a Cravens (hip) and RB Matt Jones (shoulder) were full participants.
