Report: Marlin Jackson leaves field in Philly in tears
This will serve as a quiet reminder that there is risk associated with injury in offseason workouts.
Philadelphia Eagles safety Marlin Jackson was injured on the practice field at the team’s complex today and “left the field in tears,” according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Jackon, who was lined up at free safety with the starting defensive unit, went down on a pass play in the team’s indoor practice facility and the building went silent, per the report.
The former Indianapolis Colt is coming off of ACL injuries that ended his season in 2009 and in 2008. That right there could explain why Jackson, six months removed from the most recent ACL reconstruction, was in tears. The team told reporters that the latest injury did not involve a knee and that Jackson did something with his right ankle. An update is expected later in the week.
This also serves as a reminder that Jackson might not be a durable option for the Eagles.
