Redskins prized free agent acquisition receiver DeSean Jackson stopped participating in OTAs Thursday after suffering what appeared to be an upper left leg injury. He remained with the team on the sideline after the injury. Considering it's May and Jackson walked around the field fine, the odds look slim of a major injury for Jackson.
During offensive drills, Jackson ran a deep fly route and quarterback Robert Griffin III unleashed a long pass in his direction. The pass dropped incomplete, but as Jackson jogged back to the huddle he repeatedly grabbed towards his left hamstring. Within a minute, team training staff had Jackson on the ground, stretching the left leg. Redskins fullback Darrel Young came and spoke to Jackson, and new head coach Jay Gruden came over briefly to check on the speed receiver.
After a few minutes of stretching, Jackson stood up and walked, only to take a knee and continue grabbing at his leg. He then went to the sideline were trainers applied an ice wrap around the leg.
Players and coaches will not be available for comment until the conclusion of OTAs, so expect more on this development then.
