DeSean Jackson carted off practice field, appears to be fine

UPDATE: All indications are that DeSean Jackson tweaked his back but he will be ok. He was seen leaving the locker room under his own power by the Eagles beat writers.

Every year it seems like the Eagles lose someone important during training camp due to an injury. Last year, it was Stewart Bradley who went down early in camp and was done for the season. This year, it could be DeSean Jackson.

Jackson injured himself in practice today after catching a pass and had to be carted off the field. There was no contact on the play but Jackson fell to the turf awkwardly. While there is no word yet on what his injury is, Jackson was seen favoring his right leg. He was able to walk slowly under his own power after getting off the cart and into the locker room.

The Eagles will give an injury update later today. Let's all hope for the best!
