DeSean Jackson Active For Eagles Vs. Packers Second Half

DeSean Jackson was inactive for much of the first half of the Philadelphia Eagles’ Wild Card showdown with the Green Bay Packers, but he returned to the game just before halftime and should be ready for the Eagles’ attempt at a third-quarter comeback. Jackson left the game in the first quarter after his knee was pinned under LeSean McCoy; he returned with a few minutes left in the second half.

DeSean Jackson led football with a 22.5 yards per reception average in 2010, catching a career-low 47 balls for an impressive 1056 yards and six touchdowns. Jackson, a second-rounder in 2008, has 172 receptions for 3135 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also serves as a regular punt-returner for the Eagles.

Without Jackson Vick has targeted Jason Avant most frequently—he has three receptions for 31 yards. McCoy is the only other Eagle with more than one reception, managing two for nine yards; he’s got six carries for 22 yards, and one fall for about 10 minutes without DeSean Jackson.
