Richmond, Va. – Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson injured his right shoulder during Thursday morning’s joint practice with the Houston Texans.
Jackson was hurt after catching the first pass during individual drills against Texans’ defensive backs for a touchdown. After catching the ball, Jackson lost his balance and fell on his shoulder. He appeared to run into a blocking sled that was behind the end zone.
Jackson stayed on the field for five minutes, tended by team trainers, before leaving the field under his own power. He returned to the field later in the morning with his right shoulder heavily wrapped under ice.
Jackson is expected to miss a week or two with a separated shoulder, but he could return sooner, according to the team.
Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also left Thursday morning’s practice early after injuring his groin and knee during a play against Texans’ receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
