Published Add your comment

The Washington Redskins had a far from idea build-up to the 2015 season.

And it hasn't gotten any easier now that the games are underway, with freshly-inserted starting quarterback Kirk Cousins throwing two interceptions as the 'Skins slipped to a 17-10 loss to open the new campaign.

The bad news hasn't stopped for Washington either, as it was revealed today that key man DeSean Jackson will miss a number games through injury.

As you may well guess, losing their star wide receiver is the absolute last thing that Jay Gruden and the Redskins would have wanted right now. Washington are desperate for playmakers right now as they prepare for another season of struggle.

He was injured while running a deep route down the sideline, trying to make the kind of play that’s made him one of the NFL’s best deep threats. Jackson led the NFL with 13 catches of 40 yards or more last season.

With Jackson out, the likes of Pierre Garcon, Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed will all have to step up and take over the former Eagles man's work.
