Chargers HC Brandon Staley said Wednesday that RB Justin Jackson was a "full go" in practice, according to Gavino Borquez or Chargers Wire. Jackson missed most of August with a groin injury, but that issue appears to be behind him. His healthy return is especially noteworthy given that Austin Ekeler (hamstring) missed Wednesday's workout. Borquez adds that Jackson is "expected to resume his role as the primary backup" to Ekeler, with Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree "likely to be short-yardage specialists and special teamers to start the season." Jackson should be picked up this week in most leagues of 12+ teams -- and perhaps even some 10-teamers.
Lions RB Justin Jackson (hip) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bears. Craig Reynolds is active as Detroit’s #3 RB, but Jackson’s absence could be a slight boost for RB D’Andre Swift.
Lions RB Justin Jackson (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He should continue to serve as the #3 RB behind Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift.
Lions RB Justin Jackson has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jets due to an illness. He's averaged 4.3 carries and 2.0 targets over the past 6 games, so his absence would open up some opportunity for RBs Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift.
The Lions signed RB Justin Jackson. The 26-year-old has flashed over 4 NFL seasons, averaging 5.0 yards per carry and 7.8 yards per catch. But he's reached double-digit carries only 6 times and had trouble staying healthy. It's also notable that Jackson had to wait until August 1 to land a job. We'll see if he can push Jamaal Williams for Detroit's #2 RB job. Jackson's arrival shouldn't impact RB D'Andre Swift's role.
