Jackson, who injured his hamstring in the season opener, was scheduled to miss three to four weeks. However, coach Jay Gruden said last week that Jackson might return sooner than expected to face Philadelphia on Sunday.
Jackson was at Redskins Park receiving treatment. Gruden said Jackson remains day to day.
“We’ll see how he does [Thursday], if he’s going to run any,” Gruden said.
The Redskins could use Jackson against the Eagles. Last season he caught nine passes for 243 yards and a touchdown vs. Philadelphia. His absence allows a team intent on stopping the run to devote more to that area.
Also on the Redskins injury report:
LB Perry Riley: Did not practice because of his calf injury. He did not play vs. the Giants because of the injury. Will Compton replaced him and would do so again if he doesn’t play vs. Philadelphia.
DL Kedric Golston: Was limited because of his hand injury.
G Josh LeRibeus: Still bothered by a calf injury suffered vs. New York. He’s not in the running to start at left guard.
CB Chris Culliver: Soreness in a leg forced him to stop practicing early. Gruden called it precautionary.
QB Colt McCoy: Returned to practice after sitting out Monday with a cut foot. McCoy had cut his foot with scissors while trying to take tape off.
