DeSean Jackson to miss next two games with abdominal strain

The Philadelphia Eagles will be without their top deep threat for the next two weeks.

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is set to miss the next two games due to an abdominal strain, according to a report by ESPN’s Tim McManus.

Not good.

The Eagles face the Detroit Lions this Sunday and head to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers four days later. There’s also the injury to the other starting wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, who is dealing with a calf strain, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. His status for the next two games is in doubt.

With Jackson out and if Jeffery doesn’t go, that leaves the Eagles with Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and rookie second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside as the team’s top three options at wideout just like it was most of the game Sunday in Atlanta.
