Jackson 'Ok' Following Concussion

Playmaking receiver DeSean Jackson is said to be feeling "ok" a day after sustaining a concussion in Sunday's win over the Redskins.

"He doesn't feel bad today," head coach Andy Reid said Monday. "We are as cautious as they come with concussions. We're going to continue to test him and go through the process."

Jackson left the game after he was hit on an underneath crossing route midway through the third quarter. He finished with two receptions for 41 yards, including a 35-yard touchdown catch. He also chipped in 29 yards on a sensational punt return.

Jackson is the second offensive playmaker to recovering from a concussion. Running back Brian Westbrook suffered a pair of concussions in a four-week span. Fortunately, Reid reported that Jackson did not lose consciousness like running back Brian Westbrook did on at least one of his two concussions.

Westbrook, meanwhile, is expected to be reevaluated by doctors in Pittsburgh this week.

In other injury news, a number of players are dealing with sprains, including tight end Brent Celek (thumb sprain), left guard Todd Herremans (AC shoulder sprain) and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (ankle sprain).

When about Celek's ability to play despite his injury, Reid said: "It's something he can function with."

Reid said there's a chance that linebacker Akeem Jordan could return after missing the last few games with a hyper-extended knee.

Receiver Kevin Curtis remains sidelined with his knee injury.
