DeSean Jackson Breaks Multiple Ribs, Heads To IR

This just keeps getting better.

Embattled Eagles head coach Andy Reid told reporters at his day after news conference that wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered multiple broken ribs last night and will be placed on injured reserve, effectively ending his season.

Jackson, who inked a new contract last offseason, wasn’t have a Pro Bowl year, but was having a solid season for what has been an abysmal offense. He reeled in 45 catches for 700 yards and two touchdowns. He was on pace to eclipse the 1,000 yard-mark for the third time in his career.

Jackson left the game in the first quarter last night after only one catch for nine yards. He was taken to the locker room and did not return to the game.

Stay tuned for more.
