Washington Redskins wide receiver Desean Jackson returned to full practice Monday after he had been out with an ankle injury that occurred when he was accidentally cleated during practice on Aug. 6.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post said that Jackson “appeared to be moving without any limitations.” He also quoted Jackson saying that he feels good and that he “had a little sore, bruised ankle for the last couple days. So to be back in the midst of things, felt good.” Jackson also expects to play next Monday against Cleveland.
Jackson, 27, has not had any ankle injuries in the past, but did spend most of the 2012 season on the injured reserve for broken ribs and has suffered concussion issues as well.
The veteran was released by the Philadelphia Eagles after reports surfaced from NJ.com that he had gang ties in Southern California. Jackson denied these allegations but was released by Philadelphia on March 28 of this year.
The Washington Redskins quickly scooped up the Pro-Bowl wideout on April 2 and signed him to a three-year, $24 million deal.
Jackson had 1,332 receiving yards and nine touchdowns last season and advanced to his third Pro Bowl as a professional wide receiver.
He will receive passes from Robert Griffin III this season alongside Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Andre Roberts.
