The Eagles' Mr. Big Play - DeSean Jackson - has been invisible the last two games. The wide receiver has just four catches for 51 yards during that span. Targeted 14 times in the opener - when he caught six passes for 102 yards and a touchdown - Jackson has been the target only nine times in the last two games.
"That's about me getting the ball to DeSean and putting him in the right situations," Vick said. "He'll get the ball. He'll make that work."
Jackson, who is still in search of a new contract, wasn't interested in talking about his lack of catches after practice. Vick said the home run hasn't been there because opposing defenses are placing their centerfielder right in front of the fence.
"People are playing so far downfield you can't even see the free safety no more," Vick said.
If Jeremy Maclin can't go on Sunday, Jackson should see a few more targets and the 49ers have struggled against opposing WRs this year. 4for4 currently has Jackson ranked as the #12 WR for Week 4.
