Eagles coach Doug Pederson said yesterday that DeSean Jackson was “week-to-week” after missing Sunday’s Eagles-Falcons game.
Now ESPN is reporting that D-Jax has an abdominal strain that is expected to sideline him for two weeks.
One doctor recommended surgery, which would have shelved the 32-year-old for about six weeks, but Jackson wants to return to action as soon as possible.
Jackson exited early in the first half against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night.
The Birds brought him back via a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March to provide Carson Wentz with a bona fide deep threat. They connected for two touchdowns of 50-plus yards in the opener against Washington.
Receiver Alshon Jeffery could also miss Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions after suffering a calf injury early against Atlanta.
