DeSean Jackson Injury: Eagles Wide Receiver Leaves, Returns To Game

The Philadelphia Eagles are already without Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin in their critical Sunday night match-up with the New York Giants. Briefly, it appeared that they would be without DeSean Jackson for the rest of the night, too.

Jackson made a 32-yard catch to set the Eagles up in Giants territory, but came down hard and left the field. NBC's Michele Tafoya reported that Jackson had been taken to the locker room for further examination of his right knee, and that his return was questionable.

But Jackson returned midway through the second quarter, with Al Michaels telling the NBC audience that he had been evaluated for a concussion and, obviously, cleared. And Jackson immediately made a massive catch to get Philly out from the shadow of its own goalposts, then promptly nullified it with a penalty for taunting.

So, yes, DeSean Jackson appears to be just fine.
