Report: Eagles to activate WR Jackson

The Philadelphia Eagles will activate wide receiver DeSean Jackson from injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s showdown against the Dallas Cowboys, NFL Network reported.

Jackson has been out since suffering a non-displaced fracture in his right ankle in Week 7.

“He’s getting close,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said earlier this week after the team activated the 21-day window for Jackson’s return.

Jackson, 34, played the first three games of the season, then missed the next three with a hamstring injury before the fracturing his ankle on Oct. 22. He has 13 catches for 155 yards in four starts this season.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection has 611 career receptions for 10,575 yards and 55 touchdowns in 159 games with Philadelphia (2008-13, 2019-20), Washington (2014-16) and Tampa Bay (2017-18).

The Eagles (4-9-1) visit the Cowboys (5-9) at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday.
