DeSean Jackson and Hassan Ridgeway Placed on Injured Reserve

Doug Pederson confirmed Friday that Hassan Ridgeway would be done for the year, and combining that news with the DeSean Jaccson injury, both have been placed on injured reserve:

The good news is that Jalen Reagor is close to a return, so the Birds’ receiver depth chart moving forward will be:

  • Travis Fulgham – WR1
  • Greg Ward – slot WR
  • John Hightower – WR 2
  • J.J. Arcega-Whiteside
  • Jalen Reagor (soon)
  • Alshon Jeffery whenever the hell he’s ready to go
  • Quez Watkins


On the defensive line, Ridgeway was a big part of the tackle rotation and got a lot of snaps filling in for the early injury to Javon Hargrave and the recent injury to Malik Jackson. Going forward, it’ll be:

  • Fletcher Cox – DT 1
  • Javon Hargrave – DT 2
  • T.Y. McGill – DT 3
  • Malik Jackson – should be back after the bye


On the practice squad, the Birds have receivers Deontay Burnett and Marcus Green, with defensive tackle Raequan Williams. They’ll probably stack their ends a bit against the Cowboys, which they like to do on third downs anyway, so look for only one DT on the field when Dallas is in obvious passing down and distance.
