Today the Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said on ESPN 980 that Jackson needs to be close to 100 percent if he’s going to play.
“He did a little bit today,” Gruden said. “I think he’s gonna be a game-day type deal. He wants to go really bad — obviously he’s going back to Philly. But if he’s not 100 percent — if he’s 60-70 percent — he’s really not that good to us.”
Brian Mitchell the former Redskin said that it is not that often a player is 100%.
“I know, but he’s already 160 pounds,” Gruden said. “He’s already a very terrible blocker. We’ll see. I think he wants to play. He’s a tough guy. He is allowed to wear shoulder pads, so he might be all right.”
