DeSean Jackson working his way back from concussion
DeSean Jackson has been given the OK to practice today for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The wide receiver had been sidelined with a concussion suffered in the well-publicized hit he received from Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson on Oct. 17. But according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, Jackson was examined Tuesday by Dr. William Welch, an independent neurologist.
But Jackson, speaking on “Daily News Live” on Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia, declined to say if he’d been given full clearance to play this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. He said he’s taking it one day at a time and said the injury was more of a whiplash situation for his neck than trauma to the head, per Bowen.
"I don't know man, that's not my decision," Jackson said when asked if he was cleared to play.
