Bleeding Green Nation’s Jimmy K was on hand at Eagles training camp today and reports that DeSean Jackson was taken off the field on a cart with an apparent back injury.
The Inquirer is reporting that the injury is not considered serious.
The Eagles gave the injury update after practice, but said Jackson was still being evaluated. About a half hour after the update, the receiver, who hasn’t spoken to reporters since he arrived at Lehigh two days ago, walked out of the locker room on his own, got into his black Porsche and sped away without comment.
Teammates and Eagles sources were saying the injury wasn’t serious. Judging by the way Jackson left the practice facility, they could be right.
Obviously it doesn’t even need to be said that potentially losing Jackson to an injury would be a crushing blow. So far though, it appears a bullet was dodged here.
