Coach Doug Pederson announced Friday that DeSean Jackson would miss Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions due to a groin injury.
After getting off to a blazing start in Week 1 with two 50-plus-yard touchdowns, Jackson played just nine snaps in Week 2, per Next Gen Stats, before suffering the injury.
Jackson missing Sunday's tilt isn't a surprise, as the receiver missed practice all week. The question is how long the injury will keep Jackson out. With a Thursday night game versus Green Bay on the docket next week, the 32-year-old might miss multiple games.
As for the other injuries to pass-catchers Philly is dealing with, Pederson said he's still holding out hope that wideout Alshon Jeffery (calf) and tight endDallas Goedert (calf) will be able to go Sunday. Neither has practiced this week and both were listed as questionable to play. If both join Jackson sitting out, Wentz's pass-catching corps will be a shell of what it was in Week 1.
