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.
