Report: DeSean Jackson Will Have Surgery Tuesday, Miss Even More Time

Eric Hartline - USA Today Sports


John Clark at NBC Sports Philly:

DeSean Jackson will have surgery Tuesday morning with core muscle specialist Dr. William Meyers, according to sources. It’s estimated he will be out about 4-6 weeks.

Jackson met with the specialist Monday afternoon and was told his core muscle injury is now worse than it was when it first happened in Week 2. His abdominal muscle is now completely torn off the bone after he tried to play Sunday against the Bears. It was a minimal tear when it first happened in Week 2. The injury occurred Sunday on the Eagles’ opening drive when he was tackled after his only catch. It worsened on the third-down sack on that same drive.

Interestingly enough, Doug Pederson said this morning he thought Jackson would be ready in a couple of weeks. Looks like that ain’t happening.

Wow fuck off!

    They maybe dodged a bullet not paying up for a CB at the trade deadline, but Howie is paying the price for not getting a WR. This offense is one dimensional now and ultimately bearable. Otherwise I think they could’ve made a decent run.

      You don’t know anything about Football, Carson is the problem…

      The only thing this team of any talent is the QB and the Offensive Line, which is easily the best in football at run blocking!

      If Carson would just make players like Arcega Whiteside, Hollins, and Agholor, you know Good, we might be okay.

      Or we can run it 80s a game and try to hold teams under 17 with a defense that can not cover me…

      All we need is a new QB, he sucks! If we get a new QB, the problems will go away, we have 2 weeks, let’s get Sudfield Ready.

        This is what many people in this town think, who are supposedly life long football fans and watchers…I do not know what they watch….but it’s not this team.

          Just saying

          No one is badmouthing Carson Wentz in Philly. And any criticism of him: he’s over-rated; he doesn’t elevate the play of any of his teammates; his leadership should be questioned, triggers (for lack of a better term) all his martyr-like defenders in the fanbase and in the media.

          Can’t wait for the articles this offseason about what a dumpster fire the locker room is, and then see everyone gnashing their teeth and beating their chest in anguish that little Mr. Chosen One is failing and being called out for it.

          • not true.. November 5, 2019 at 9:47 am

            yah you know, cause no one in this town thinks we should have kept foles, cause you know hes better…cut me a break..

            your post literally defends him by all by not mentioning the lack of talent…

            Give Carson the talent the Cowboys have or the Vikings, or any of these “close to great” fringe teams…and see what results its all speculation i get it but the eye test should tell you all you need…

            just be glad the rams drafted, Jared “s**t” goff”, That guy stinks!

        I agree

  • El wingador - hof November 4, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    What kind of medical staff do they have over there . Tell the little gangster he needed surgery after week 2 and he’s back by now

    • Carson Wentz, 30 Million Dollar Game Manager November 5, 2019 at 9:39 am

      They did. Jaccson and Pederson wanted three separate recommendations. They finally found a doctor who said rehab was the best option. They’re in heavy denial.

  • FATPIG PETERS November 4, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    This puzzy is as big a waste as me!!!

  • Dr. Kevorkian November 4, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    I have trained all of the Philadelphia Sports teams medical staff’s. I have helped Joel Embiid, DeSean, Jason Peters, Michael Neuvirth, and the Phillies bullpen get back to health. Nothing to see here!

    I wasn’t right about much, but I had this no-good thug bum pegged.

  • It's all about the 76ers now November 4, 2019 at 6:24 pm

    The Eagles run is over until Jackson and Jeffrey can be released without cap implications. Even in 2021 it still cost the Eagles money to release them. Their contracts are absolutely brutal. They are so backloaded it’s a joke.

    If the surgery goes well he will play in 7 weeks. We will know next week if he will stay off IR, per my sources.

    Booger MacFarland is so good on MNF.

    Also I love the black guy with the hat in the nfl “the champ is here” commercial.

      Did Pop Pop in the AM tell you that?

    The Dems are impeaching Trump in an election year. Trump is toast. Elizabeth Warren will dominate him.

    This is a prime example of why you can’t rely on old players. shame Howie can not draft. Mini TO DK Metcalf would look great in eagles green.

    • Howie Roseman constantly wasting picks on slop players is hurting this team November 5, 2019 at 8:30 am

      So would the other 2 talented and speedy rookie wideouts, Terry McLaurin and Mecole Hardman.
