Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson is battling a calf injury that could affect his status for Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team.

After appearing on Wednesday’s injury report as a limited participant, reporters in Las Vegas did not see him at Thursday’s practice.

NFL Network reported that Jackson’s injury was considered “minor.”

Jackson, 35, signed with the Raiders last month after the Los Angeles Rams agreed to release him. In three games for Las Vegas, Jackson has caught four passes for 140 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown in the Raiders’ 36-33 Thanksgiving Day win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Tight end Darren Waller (back, knee) also did not practice Wednesday due to injuries he picked up in the Cowboys game.
