Eagles Place DeSean Jackson on Injured Reserved, Playoff Return Possible

The Eagles will have to play the rest of the 2019 regular season without a deep threat, as the team announced today they have placed DeSean Jackson on injured reserve.

Of course the rule for injured reserve is that a player has to stay on the list for eight games. After eight games the player becomes eligible to return, but a team can only bring two players off of the list during the season. before placing Jackson on IR the Eagles only had one player who was a surefire bet to bring off the list -- Cre'Von LeBlanc.

So theoretically Jackson's 2019 season isn't over yet. The earliest he could return is in the NFC Divisional Round, meaning the Eagles would have to make the playoffs and win in the NFC Wild Card Round before he is eligible to return. It was initially reported that his surgery would cost him about six weeks, so he might be fully recovered from the surgery by the time playoffs come around.

The Eagles might have to limp their way into the playoffs, as their passing offense has struggled immensely with their current wide receivers struggling to get separation and struggling to actually catch the football. If no receivers end up stepping up in this time of need, then the offense is going to have to rely on Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders heavily with some Carson Wentz magic thrown into the mix as well.
