DeSean Jackson in a walking boot with knee injury

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was in a walking boot and a knee wrapped after the Eagles win over the Giants, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

The walking boot was because someone stepped on his foot. The brace was from an attempt to make an acrobatic coach in the first half.

“I’ll be alright,” Jackson said.

The Eagles said Jackson was checked out for a knee injury and a concussion during the game. Jackson termed the injury a sprained right knee or right ankle.

Jackson had 88 receiving yards and a season-long 51-yard punt return. According to, Sunday’s game at the Patriots is off the board, and Jackson’s injury along with Michael Vick’s is a very good reason for it.

In addressing his role with the team, Jackson said, “People don’t really understand the light I shine on my teammates and the energy I’m able to bring.”
