Dr. Robert Palumbo on injury to DeSean Jackson


Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson finally returned from injury on Thursday night against the Giants, only to suffer—what appears to be–a serious ankle injury late in the game on a punt return.

Jackson, who has been constantly battling injury after injury since rejoining the Eagles last year, posted this on his Instagram account after the game.
