Eagles expect to get WR DeSean Jackson back after bye week

Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson returned to the field from an abdomen injury on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, but his return did not last long.

Jackson, playing in his first game since Week 2, left the Eagles’ 22-14 win on Sunday after the first quarter. He played just a handful of snaps.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson spoke about Jackson's health during his weekly call-in on Monday's 94WIP Morning Show with Angelo Cataldi.

"Leading up to the game, he had been in his rehab, running, and felt really good. He had a great week of practice and preparation and we had looked at the Bears game as a possible date for him to return and play. He felt good. It was something we had a lot of collaboration on, not only with our doctors, but with DeSean to play in this football game. He was going to be limited, we knew that going in. He wasn't going to play the full game. Everybody was comfortable with that decision."

Fantasy Impact: 

Peterson said everything checked out good after the game, and pulling Jackson was more precautionary, according to the quote from Peterson in the story. The Eagles have a bye in Week 10 and then host the Patriots in Week 11.
