Concussion likely to sideline Eagles' Jackson

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid updated the status of DeSean Jackson on Monday and didn't think the concussion the star receiver suffered would allow him to play this coming Sunday, although he didn't completely rule him out either.

Jackson was involved in a violent collision with Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson that forced both players to leave this past Sunday's game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Reid acknowledged after the game that Jackson suffered a concussion, and on Monday added he has "quite a little bit of soreness in his shoulder and neck area" and it would be "a real stretch to make it this weekend."

Jackson caught a pass on a cross pattern over the middle before Robinson hit him full force in the shoulder. The impact was so severe that it left both players dazed, and it appeared as though Jackson was unconscious for a short period of time.

The 4-2 Eagles travel to Tennessee to play the Titans on Sunday before their bye week, which offers Jackson more time to recuperate.

Jackson has caught 19 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns this season.
