Eagles WR DeSean Jackson (groin) has been ruled out for this weekend's game against the Lions. He's also expected to miss next Thursday night's clash with the Packers. HC Doug Pederson didn't rule out WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) or TE Dallas Goedert (calf) on Friday morning, but they still seem like long shots. We'll get another update this afternoon.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports that the timetable for Eagles WR DeSean Jackson returning from his groin injury “remains TBD” but that “my understanding is” Jackson won’t play against the Lions on Sunday. He adds that Jackson might not make it back for Week 4 either, because of Philly’s Thursday night kick against the Packers. Along with removing a high-ceiling fantasy WR, Jackson’s absence would ding the upside of QB Carson Wentz. We’ll, of course, watch to confirm Jackson’s status. But plan to not have him available. Nelson Agholor is a strong waiver target this week.

Update: ESPN’s Tim McManus reports it is an abdominal strain that will cost Jackson 2 weeks. Let’s hope Jackson isn’t headed for sports hernia surgery, which would likely extend his absence.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson labeled WR DeSean Jackson (groin) -- along with WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) and TE Dallas Goedert (calf) -- "day to day" in a Tuesday morning radio interview. "It's day to day with these guys and we're going to continue to rehab these guys this week and see where they're at," Pederson added. "I'm not going to commit right now to that (them playing in Week 3) because I want to make sure they put in a full week of practice before we make that determination." We'll keep a close eye on the Eagles' practice reports all week.

The Eagles expect WR DeSean Jackson to play against Washington in the regular-season opener next Sunday, despite his fractured left ring finger. Dave Spadaro of the team website said as much during the Thursday night broadcast of Philly's final preseason game. The injury is bound to inhibit his ability to catch a bit, but it's tough to argue Jackson's upside following a highly buzzy summer.

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Wednesday after breaking his left ring finger in Tuesday's practice, ESPN's Tim McManus reports. ESPN's Josina Anderson, meanwhile, hears that D-Jax was told it's a 3-4 week injury but that he'll try to play through it with a custom splint. This will be a situation to keep a close eye on over the next 12 days leading up to Philly's opener against the Redskins. Any concern about Jackson's ability to catch will make him an avoid in early-season fantasy lineups.
