DeSean Jackson Update: Buccaneers wide receiver
expected to play versus Eagles DeSean Jackson is expected to be cleared from his concussion in time to play in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Black Dallas Goedert Jerseys , according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.Jackson, who was listed “questionable” on the Bucs’ final injury report, was a full participant during Friday’s practice despite dealing with a shoulder issue in addition to his concussion. In other words, this news doesn’t come as a total surprise.Jackson being present for this game is bad news for the Eagles’ defense. The former Philadelphia draft pick loves to torch his former team. Since being released by the Eagles in March 2014, Jackson has logged 20 receptions for 440 yards (a whopping 22.0 average) and two touchdowns in five games against Philly. Although he turns 32 in December Dallas Goedert Jerseys 2019 , Jackson sure looked in prime form last week against the Saints. He torched New Orleans with five receptions for 146 yards (29.2 average) and two touchdowns. The Eagles will have their hands full trying to contain Jackson. It would seem like Jim Schwartz wants to get Ronald Darby, who boast 4.3 40-yard speed, matched up on him. One would imagine Bucs offensive coordinator and play-caller Todd Monken will try to move Jackson around the formation. Of course, Jackson is hardly the only receiving target the Eagles defense will have to worry about on Sunday. Mike Evans is also one of the top wideouts in the game. Penn State alumnus Chris Godwin is impressive. Then there’s O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate at tight end.This underscores how imperative it is for the Eagles to get pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick this weekend. Fitzpatrick went off against the Saints but he’s clearly not that good every week. We know Philadelphia is capable of creating pressure, as we just saw last week with the Eagles sacking Matt Ryan four times and hitting him an additional 15 times. The Eagles’ front seven will need another strong performance in order to beat the Bucs. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Cody Parkey got an excuse he probably won’t use.Parkey’s missed 43-yard field goal in the final seconds that gave the Philadelphia Eagles a 16-15 upset win over the Chicago Bears in Sunday’s wild-card playoff game was officially ruled a block by the NFL.Video showed Philadelphia’s Treyvon Hester tipped the ball Black Jerome Brown Jerseys , which bounced off the upright and hit the crossbar.Parkey was booed by Bears fans as he ran off the field after kneeling down with teammates and opponents for a postgame prayer. He accepted responsibility for the loss afterward.“There’s really no answer to it,” Parkey said. “I thought I hit a good ball. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it. I feel terrible, 100 percent take that loss on me. It is what it is. Sun is going to shine tomorrow. Life is going to go on. Unfortunately, it’s going to sting for a while.”Eagles coach Doug Pederson on Monday praised Hester Jerome Brown Jerseys 2019 , who began the season on the practice squad, for having “a big hand in the game” and the team posted on Twitter it was the first blocked field goal in the franchise’s postseason history.The Eagles took a one-point lead when Nick Foles threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate with 56 seconds remaining. Mitchell Trubisky drove the Bears into position to win it, but Parkey’s kick didn’t go through. Philadelphia plays at New Orleans next Sunday.Hester’s block should absolve Parkey from blame, though Bears fans certainly won’t let him forget it anytime soon. Parkey’s teammates stood by him after the game and players around the country quickly expressed their support on social media.NBA star Dwyane Wade wrote on Twitter: “Most of you have no idea how hard this is to do. Cody Parkey way to face the media like a true professional. I’m a fan!”Eagles kicker Jake Elliott wrote: “This is a standup guy that a lot of young players can look up to. This is how you handle adversity like a pro. Cody is a heck of a kicker and will be for a long time. No reason to be taking the heat he is especially when that ball was tipped. #ClassAct”The Philadelphia Flyers poked fun at Parkey during Monday night’s game against St. Louis. Gritty, the team’s googily-eyed mascot Black Reggie White Jerseys , kicked a field goal blindfolded in the stands during a “Cody Parkey Challenge” and fans roared, breaking into the “Fly! Eagles! Fly!” fight song when the missed kick was shown on the video screen.
