News: 4 hours agoJackson will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his ankle during Thursday's win over the Giants, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Spin: Jackson was originally believed to have suffered a high ankle sprain, but ensuing tests have now determined the serious nature of the injury. The return timetable would suggest the veteran receiver could return near the end of the regular season, but it's possible the Eagles might simply take their time with Jackson's recovery process in the event they bow out of contention for a playoff spot. It's worth noting Jackson, who has played in just 18 games over the past three seasons, does not plan to retire, though this newest injury will likely put him on injured reserve for the foreseeable future.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Eagles reacquired Jackson last offseason in the hope that he would add a vertical element to their offense. Things looked good early on, with Jackson exploding for an 8-154-2 receiving line in Week 1, but it was all downhill from there. Jackson managed only one target the rest of the season due to injury. The Eagles will give it another go with Jackson in 2020, but he's now 33 and hasn't played a full season since 2013. Jackson can still be a weekly starter in fantasy, so he's worth a late-round pick, but make sure you have a backup plan.
