The Eagles have announced that DeSean Jackson’s return is questionable to return with an elbow injury. Jackson was taken to the locker room after he appeared to hurt himself running down and tackling a Jets’ defender who had just scooped up LeSean McCoy’s first fumble of the season.
That happened in the first half and Jackson never came out for the third quarter. The Eagles are also without Asante Samuel, who also was taken to the locker room in the first half and has yet to return. The Eagles say he has a hamstring and his return is questionable.
The Eagles now lead 35-13 with just under 9 minutes left in the third quarter. Moments ago, Michael Vick hit Brent Celek for a 38 yard gain that took the Eagles down to the one yard line. LeSean McCoy punched it in for his 19th TD of the year, a new Eagles single season record.
