DeSean Jackson (ankle) out 6-8 weeks

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson suffered a non-displaced fracture in his ankle and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Fantasy Impact: 

It’s a similar injury to the one suffered by TE Dallas Goedert, who has already missed a few weeks and is not expected back until after the Eagles bye in Week 9. This timeframe puts Jackson on track to return somewhere between Weeks 13 and 15, right at the start of the fantasy playoffs. But at this point, it will certainly be tough to trust DJax during that run, especially with the Eagles having Travis Fulgham playing well and other receivers, including Jalen Raegor, should also be back by then. Jackson will be entering the final year of his contract with the Eagles in 2021 (provided the team decides to keep him).
