ASHBURN -- The site of DeSean Jackson sitting out last Wednesday's practice brought immediate concern to the situation. That the scene repeated itself exactly one week later, while still notable, for now isn't setting off alarms.
Perhaps that's because in between Jackson caught a momentum-shifting 44-yard touchdown strike from Kirk Cousins in Sunday's 29-27 win over the New York Giants. That the playmaker hobbled off the field later in the Washington's first win of the season cannot be forgotten, but he did return. He did not return to practice as the Redskins began their on-field work ahead of Sunday's game with the Browns.
"Kind of the same old injury, "Jackson said of his knee and ankle issues. "Still just trying to get my treatment, get it right or the end of the week. Should be alright."
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland (ankle), guard Shawn Lauvao (ankle), rookie receiver Josh Doctson (Achilles) and CB Dashaun Phillips (hamstring) joined Jackson as spectators, coach Jay Gruden announced. No follow up questions for Gruden on Jackson, but the receiver answered a few while seated in front of his locker at Redskins Park.
* On not overlooking the 0-3 Browns
* On current red-zone woes plaguing Washington's offense.
* And finally, on his physical status
* DL Chris Baker (elbow and toe), OLB Trent Murphy (elbow and shoulder) and DL Kendall Reyes (groin) were limited Wednesday.
