The Washington Redskins will be holding their collective breath when it comes to the health of wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

According to multiple reports, including NBC 4's Dianna Marie Russini, Jackson sustained an ankle injury during Wednesday's practice session. He was forced to head to the training table, where he sat with a bag of ice on the affected area.

Ankle injuries come in various shapes and sizes, so the training staff will have to determine the severity of it. If it's a low sprain, it'll be something Jackson can shake off in a few days. If it's a high sprain, then it could be something that puts him out for the remainder of the preseason at minimum.

Of course, that's all speculation. But for the time being, the Redskins will surely be hoping for the low sprain/rolled variety.
