Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson took part in team drills for the first time since suffering an ankle injury last Wednesday. Based on how he moved during Monday morning’s practice, and how he felt afterwards, Jackson predicted that he will make his preseason debut next week when Washington hosts the Cleveland Browns.
“I felt good, man. Had a little sore, bruised ankle for the last couple days. So to be back in the midst of things, felt good,” Jackson said.
Jackson suffered his injury during the Aug. 6 walk-through against the New England Patriots. Jackson didn’t play in the preseason opener against New England, and he only took part in a limited amount of individual drills on Saturday and Sunday. He practiced fully on Monday, and appeared to move without any limitations.
