RICHMOND, Va. - Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson injured his right shoulder during Thursday morning's joint practice with the Houston Texans. Jackson suffered a sprain of the AC joint in his shoulder.
Jackson was hurt on the first pass he caught during individual drills against Texans' defensive backs. After beating veteran Kareem Jackson on a deep route, DeSean Jackson lost his balance, and fell on his shoulder. Head coach Jay Gruden said Jackson is expected to miss a week or two, but he could return sooner. Gruden clarified that Jackson's injury did not come as a result of running into a blocking sled parked behind that particular end zone.
Jackson stayed on the field for a couple minutes, tended by team trainers, before leaving the field under his own power. He returned to the field later in the morning with his right shoulder heavily wrapped under ice.
Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also left Thursday morning's practice early after spraining his groin during a play against Texans' receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Gruden listed Hall as day-to-day as is defensive back Chris Culliver who suffered a similar injury.
