DeSean Jackson ‘Cleated' During Practice, Questionable For First Preseason Game

Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson left the team's joint practice with the New England Patriots on Wednesday morning after being "cleated," according to coach Jay Gruden.

Jackson is questionable for the Redskins' preseason opener against the Patriots on Thursday at FedEx Field.

According to News4's Dianna Russini, Jackson stepped on someone's foot while running a route, forcing him to hobble to the sideline where trainers iced his left ankle.

Gruden confirmed that Jackson "twisted his ankle just a hair," calling the injury a "fluke."
