DeSean Jackson leaves Redskins practice with ankle injury

Well this is certainly not something that the Washington Redskins wanted to see this early in training camp with arguably their biggest free agent pickup in years, but the case is that DeSean Jackson has left practice early on Wednesday morning with an apparent ankle injury, according to multiple reports given to Pro Football Talk.

Per multiple reports, Redskins wideout DeSean Jackson left this morning’s practice with a left ankle injury, limping to the sideline and getting a huge bag of ice taped to his leg.

Now this could only end up being a precautionary measure for a tweak, but it’s always a concerning moment when your top wide receiver, and one of the best at the position in the league, has to leave practice with any sort of ankle injury that affects his biggest attribute: His speed.

The Redskins picked Jackson up not long after he was released by the rival Philadelphia Eagles this past offseason, immediately becoming one of the biggest boosts to the offense, as well as the resurgence of Robert Griffin III. Or at least what they hope will be his return to rookie form, when he led the team to the playoffs.

As more becomes available, we’ll keep you updated on Jackson’s condition.
