Jackson: I'm A Fighter

Center Jamaal Jackson underwent a procedure Tuesday to have his right triceps tendon repaired by team physician Peter DeLuca of the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia.

Jackson suffered the injury during the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Packers. Jackson recovered from an ACL injury at the end of the 2009 season to be ready for the season opener. In a text message sent to PhiladelphiaEagles.com, Jackson said that he's prepared to battle through another rehab.

"I'm a fighter! I beat the ACL in eight months, I'll beat this in four," Jackson wrote.

Jackson was officially placed on the Injured Reserve list on Monday and will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2010 season. Mike McGlynn took over for Jackson on Sunday and is scheduled to make his first career start this Sunday in Detroit.
