DeSean Jackson sits out practice, hopes to follow same path as last week

ASHBURN, Va., -- Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice for a second consecutive Wednesday. But he anticipates the rest of this week unfolding as it did before the New York Giants game.

Jackson sat because of knee and ankle issues, just as he did last week.

“It’s the same little injury,” he said. “Still trying to get my treatment and get it right for the end of the week. I should be all right.”

Jackson did not practice last week for the same reasons, but was then limited on Thursday and full on Friday. In fact, he wasn’t even listed on the injury report for Sunday’s game at New York. He caught five passes for 96 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown catch.

Jackson said getting a day off last week helped reduce the soreness in his knee and ankle.

“Being able to get that day off,” Jackson said. “I’ll be all right.”

Among others on the injury list:

CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle): Did not practice. He was not on the field, though there was heavy rain at times, so it wouldn’t have made sense for him to be there. He’s week to week.

LG Shawn Lauvao (ankle): Did not practice and was not on the field. Arie Kouandjio took the first-team snaps in his place with Spencer Long at center.

DE Kendall Reyes (groin): Limited.

CB Dashaun Phillips (hamstring): Did not practice. He worked with an athletic trainer on a side field.

WR Josh Doctson (Achilles): Did not practice. Coach Jay Gruden is concerned about him.

DE Chris Baker (elbow/rib): Limited, like last week.

LB Trent Murphy (elbow/shoulder): Limited.
