Redskins WR DeSean Jackson injures shoulder, but it's 'not believed to be serious'

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

DeSean Jackson slipped at practice and injured his shoulder falling to the ground. After trainers examined him on the field, the receiver was spotted back on the sidelines with his pads off. A wrap was put on the shoulder and Jackson was talking with Redskins President Bruce Allen.

Word was the field was slick and multiple players were slipping during drills. Jackson apparently hit a blocking sled or other piece of practice equipment as he went down, which may have caused the injury.

Considering he is back out on the sidelines, the injury is not believed to be serious.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jackson had a good first season in Washington, but he was playing with a chip on his shoulder after being released by the Eagles. He used that as motivation to post 5-117-1 against Philly in Week 3 and 4-126 in Week 16. When the two Eagles games are excluded, DeSean Jackson played at a 58-1140-6.1 pace. Those are fringe WR2 numbers in PPR and solid WR2 numbers in standard formats. Will he play with the same motivation in 2015?
