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.
Update here via Rapoport:
#Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is having surgery to repair a core muscle injury tomorrow, sources say. Based on the timing, it appears unlikely he’ll play again this season.
