Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was ruled out for Week 3. Kirk Cousins gets the start. In four previous starts, he averaged 269 yards with 1.5 TD and 1.5 INT, which equates to QB17-type numbers. He’s a Sneaky Start this week against a shaky Eagles defense.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) missed practice again Thursday. Jackson said, "I don't plan on missing the game." Jackson has extra incentive to play against his old team, though the shoulder injury is worrisome. We have no hard proof, but players tend to excel when they face their old team, especially when they parted ways with acrimony. We’ll watch his participation on Friday.

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.
