The Eagles announced Monday afternoon that Jackson will undergo surgery to repair a core muscle injury, which he suffered in September against the Atlanta Falcons during the second week of the season.
At the time of the injury, Jackson met with the Eagles as well as independent specialists. They determined the best course of action was to continue with his rehabilitation without surgery.
The Eagles have not provided a timetable for Jackson's return. The team is now in its bye week and won't be in action again until Nov. 17 when they host the Patriots.
