DeSean Jackson's availability in Week 3 could come down to pain threshold

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson might be able to suit up Sunday in Philadelphia after all. Coach Jay Gruden said on Monday that Jackson has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder.

“He’ll be day-to-day,” Gruden said.

Jackson’s availability for Sunday’s game, Gruden said, could come down to his pain threshold.

“Depends on if he can play with the pain [whether] he’ll be good to go on Sunday,” Gruden said. “But we’ll have a better idea probably Thursday or Friday where he is.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Because this week's game is in Philadelphia, the team who released Jackson, it might be a good bet that Jackson is a go. However, if that's the case, he may not be 100-percent so this is something for owners to monitor. It's a potentially a good matchup for Washington WRs.
