Eagles place WR DeSean Jackson and DT Hassan Ridgeway on Injured Reserve

The Eagles provided some good injury news on Monday when they activated the practice windows for four players: linebacker T.J. Edwards, safety/special teamer Rudy Ford, tackle Jason Peters, and wide receiver Jalen Reagor.

Well, the Eagles will need roster spots in order to bring them back.

Two of them became available, unfortunately, due to new injuries.

The Eagles placed wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway on Injured Reserve on Monday.

Jackson suffered a lower-body injury on a fourth-quarter punt return when Giants tight end Kaden Smith dove on Jackson's leg for what he thought was a loose ball. It was Jackson's first game since a Week 3 hamstring injury against the Bengals. The potential return of Reagor will help offset the loss of Jackson. There is no timetable for Jackson's return.

Ridgeway suffered a season-ending bicep injury against the Giants. Ridgeway was a valuable rotational piece at defensive tackle, providing quality depth as a rock-solid fourth option. Ridgeway played 28 percent of the defensive snaps in the first seven games to keep the rest of the rotation fresh. The Eagles will be without Ridgeway and Malik Jackson (quadricep) is a question mark for Sunday night's game against Dallas. Jackson missed the Thursday night win over the Giants.
