DeSean Jackson suffers back injury

It's been a rough couple days for NFC East wide receivers. In Saturday afternoon's Eagles practice, DeSean Jackson caught a short pass in a non-contact 7-on-7 drill and then fell to the ground with an apparent back injury, according to the Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

McLane said that Jackson was visibly upset following the injury and that he was carted off the field. He later limped into the locker room, appearing to favor his right leg. Jackson has become one of the most dangerous weapons in the league, both as a wideout and a punt returner. Quarterback Kevin Kolb admitted to being worried after practice.

Asked if his heart skipped a beat while watching Jackson writhe in pain, Kolb said, "Yeah, especially for a quarterback ... Yeah, you definitely need him out there."

The Eagles said that Jackson was still being evaluated. His injury comes a day after Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant suffered a high ankle sprain late in the afternoon practice. We'll keep you posted. I'm about to discuss the injury on our Camp Chatter Live area if you're into that sort of thing.
