DeSean Jackson to miss Redskins game due to injury

This week, the Washington Redskins have been embattled in a controversy over who will stay with the team: Quarterback Robert Griffin III or head coach Jay Gruden. While those answers will come in the coming weeks, the team has to prepare for the St. Louis Rams.

In 2011, the Redskins made a blockbuster deal with the Rams to get Griffin III, who they thought was the franchise quarterback. When the two teams face off, Griffin III will be looking on from the bench.

Veteran Colt McCoy will be the Skins signal caller tomorrow. He’s going to be without one of his main wide receiver target, who has to miss the game.

DeSean Jackson, who was the Skins big free agent signing, will be out with a shin injury. The news was first reported by NBC Washington‘s Dianna Marie Russini.

He was considered a game-time decision this week before missing Friday’s practice. Usually when you miss Friday’s practice, you are downgraded to out for that weekend’s games.

With Jackson out, it is not clear at this time if he’ll have to miss next weekend’s game, as well. The team will have to count on the rest of the wide receiver corps to make up for Jackson’s loss with him missing the game.

This season, he’s the team’s leading receiver with 942 yards and five touchdowns.
