Ravens WR DeSean Jackson suffers hamstring injury against Saints, is questionable to return – The Denver Post


Ravens wide receiver DeSean Jackson is questionable to return in his Baltimore debut.

The 35-year-old, who was signed to the practice squad last month, saw his first action of the season with a 16-yard catch in the first quarter. However, the team announced in the fourth quarter that he suffered a hamstring injury when the Ravens led the Saints, 17-6, Monday night.

Jackson is one of several receivers seeking to provide depth to Baltimore’s depleted pass-catching ranks. Tight end Mark Andrews (knee/shoulder) did not play Monday and the Ravens said last week that wide receiver Rashod Bateman (foot) would have season-ending surgery.

Entering the fourth quarter against the Saints, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had completed passes to 10 receivers.

DeSean Jackson, who was drafted in 2008 by the Philadelphia Eagles and is a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has been one of the top deep threats in the NFL during his career.
