Earlier this offseason, Eagles GM Howie Roseman did what he does best and started making trades. One of the first was a deal to re-acquire wideout DeSean Jackson from Tampa Bay.

The idea was that the team would add a legitimate deep threat, arguably the best in the game. Roseman then extended Jackson to keep him around for a few seasons.

The Eagles have not had the best injury news this preseason with Nate Sudfeld and Cody Kessler leaving preseason games with injuries in back-to-back weeks. They received another scare on Tuesday as Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that DeSean Jackson broke his ring finger on his left hand in practice.

Luckily, as Rapoport notes, the team is not worried as they do not expect Jackson to miss any time with the injury.

Jackson appeared in the Eagles third preseason game, but it would be a surprise if he were to appear in the game this week, especially following this report.

Jackson leads all active players (minimum 200 catches) in yards per catch with 17.4. He figures to be a huge difference maker stretching the field so that Carson Wentz can throw to any of he Ertz, Alshon, Goedert or Agholor for chunk gains.
