Jackson's concussion not as severe as Westbrooks

Philly.com - [Full Article]

Eagles slim receiver Desean Jackson yesterday took a powerful shot to the upper body from Redskins crusher London Fletcher. Jackson caught a ball over the middle and was hammered by Fletcher, who outweighs Jackson by about 70 pounds.

Jackson left the game with a concussion with 7 minutes, 21 seconds to play in the third quarter, and did not return.

Jackson was not knocked out, according to the team, but he didn't totally have his wits about him, either.

"[Jackson] just was a little groggy," said coach Andy Reid, "but he was able to get up and get off the field and all that fairly quick."

Reid said Jackson's concussion was not as severe as the concussion running back Brian Westbrook suffered Oct. 26 in Washington
