After being limited last week because of a nagging hamstring pull, Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been a full participant in this week’s OTA sessions, despite not being 100-percent.

“He feels good running straight but it’s just sometimes coming out of cuts a little bit he’s still a little bit tentative,” Jay Gruden said at Redskins Park. “We’re just watching. He looked good, obviously. We had hoped he could run this week, so that’s why we kept him out last week. It was a minor deal, we thought and he thought.”

On Wednesday—the only session this week open to media—Jackson received a rubdown on his left hamstring after warmups but did not appear hampered at all by his leg once team drills began. In fact, Jackson was one of the standouts, hauling in two deep touchdown passes from Robert Griffin III and making a nice toe-tap reception along the sidelines in 11-on-11s.

“It was a good to see him out there pushing a little bit for the team,” Gruden added. “He did a good job today, but he’s still probably not a 100-percent. He’s probably working through a little bit of pain.”

Jackson injured himself running a go-route May 29.
