Jackson's Performance Impresses Kolb

DeSean Jackson practiced on Friday for the first time since suffering a lower back strain in the afternoon practice back on July 31.

Jackson looked flat out dominant in the camp practices before his injury. How did he look on Friday?

"He looked great," said quarterback Kevin Kolb. "He was moving good. We didn't push anything. We threw some deep balls to him and he went and got them. We weren't full speed or anything like that. It was a good little transition for him going into tomorrow's practice and I'm really glad he's back on the field."

Certainly the connection between Kolb and Jackson will go a long way to determining how the Eagles will do in 2010. In the two games Kolb started at quarterback in 2009, Jackson had 10 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns - one on a 71-yard deep catch-and-run and the other was a short pass that Jackson took 64 yards to the house.

Jackson has missed only one game in his first two seasons. He already has 124 catches for 2,068 yards and a total of 15 touchdowns in his career. When asked in an interview with our own Dave Spadaro during Eagles Flight Night! how many big-play touchdowns he expected to score in 2010, Jackson responded with 15.
