Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (ankle) was limited in practice on Wednesday, according to Eagles beat writer Sheil Kapadia. Jackson is expected to play in the team's Week 9 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy impact: Jackson caught eight passes for 63 yards in a Week 8 loss to the New York Giants. The eight receptions represent his second-highest catch total of the season, yet the Giants were able to hold the speedy receiver to less than eight yards per catch.
Jackson has been known to get banged up over the last couple of years and the fact that the Eagles don't have the most stable quarterback situation doesn't help. Having said that, Nick Foles (concussion) has been cleared to start against the Raiders in front of teammate Michael Vick (hamstring), who re-aggravated his injury last week.
As much as Jackson has cooled down in the last two games, he is on pace to set new career highs for touchdowns and receptions. He is surely having a good bounce back year in the eyes of his fantasy owners.
