Report: DeSean Jackson had severe concussion, memory loss

The initial report is almost as ugly as the hit looked. According to FOX reporter Jay Glazer (via ProFootballTalk), DeSean Jackson suffered a "severe concussion" and also had some memory loss when he was knocked out by Dunta Robinson. Given how long Jackson laid motionless on the field, he's fortunate to not be in a worse condition.

Don't count on seeing DeSean Jackson back with the Eagles any time soon. Just to begin running again, Jackson will need to be cleared by an independent doctor. While it's too early to speculate exactly how many weeks he will be out, I wouldn't be surprised if Jackson misses a month.
