Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson left the field with a shoulder injury after slamming into a blocking sled. It was later reported that Jackson suffered a Grade 2 separated shoulder.
Jackson is expected to miss a few weeks according to ESPN’s Dianna Marie Russini.

Jackson’s injury will likely have him sitting out of all of the Redskins preseason games. If the injury doesn’t linger and heals up properly, the star wideout should be present Week 1 when the Redskins host the Miami Dolphins September 13.
Jackson had reported earlier than the best cornerbacks couldn’t stop him. Apparently he met his match in that blocking sled.
