DeSean Jackson of the Washington Redskins doesn't believe that there is a defender alive that can stop him. 

Not Richard Sherman at the Seattle Seahawks, nor the Jets' Darrelle Revis as he made it very known in an interview conducted recently.

It seems that Jackson can be stopped however. At today’s practice, Jackson hurt himself by running into a blocking sled.

The Washington Redskins' receiver suffered an injured right shoulder when he ran into a sled Thursday during practice, failing to spot the piece of equipment after finishing a route.

It's not just his ego that will be bruised. Jackson reportedly suffered a separated shoulder in the accident and will be out of action for several weeks as he recuperates from the fall.

Michael Phillips who covers the Washington Redskins for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, tweeted out this picture of Jackson lying on the ground in clear discomfort.

While he might sit out preseason games, assuming the shoulder injury doesn't linger, it shouldn't limit the speedsters' production in 2015 as the Redskins' No. 1 target.

That blocking sled should ask for a raise, it seems he's doing a better job than plenty of NFL defenders in stopping Jackson.
