The depleted Philadelphia Eagles have already received confirmation that wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be unavailable for six to eight weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his ankle against the New York Giants, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports. The thirteen-year veteran is frustrated but highly motivated to get back not only this year but the next, Garafolo adds.

He recently recovered from a hamstring injury and was able to make a return on the field for Week 7 action. Jackson managed to be involved in their offensive attacks early and often, but eventually figured in an awkward tackle that had his leg twisted during a fourth-quarter punt return.

Third-year running back Boston Scott stepped up for the undermanned Eagles squad and scored on an 18-yard touchdown reception with 40 seconds remaining in crunch-time. The game-winning play led the Eagles to successfully mount an 11-point comeback in the final seven minutes of action.

The Philly-based squad went on to snag a heart-stopping 22-21 win against Big Blue which improved their record to 2-4-1 to nab first in the struggling NFC East division. The Giants’ loss dropped them to a cellar-dwelling 1-6 record in the same division.

The timeframe puts his comeback in the latter stages of the season already in peril and unlikely to happen. His most recent injury is similar to the one sustained by Eagles teammate and tight end Dallas Goedert. Both players only add to the long list of injured players that the Eagles have had throughout the course of the 2020 NFL season.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and his troops will return to action on November 1 as they host division rival Dallas Cowboys for Week 8 proceedings.
