    Moments after his team's 27-24 win over the Redskins, Eagles coach Andy Reid revealed that wide receiver DeSean Jackson has a concussion and he's not sure how severe it is.

    "We will just see how he does and do the tests here," Reid said. "He got a little rung. He was able to get up and get off the field really quick."

    With running back Brian Westbrook already out because of a concussion, the Eagles know how unpredictable these injuries can be. I don't know off the top of my head how many concussions Jackson has had throughout his career but I'll try to find that out for you guys.

    The Eagles will travel to Atlanta for a game next Sunday. The Falcons have a suspect secondary, so it would be a nice to have Jackson in the lineup. If he can't go, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant would likely become the starters. Avant made two huge catches during the Eagles' game-tying drive in the fourth quarter.

    He looked it. The dude had "where am I?" kind of look to him when they were showing him on the bench.

    As a precaution they should hold him out until the first week of the playoffs.

    He'll almost certainly miss the next game, and perhaps the game after that.

    NFL is messing around with concussions anymore.

    Hopefully this will be the first of plenty of injuries in his career.

    Is that classless? Maybe. I don't care.

    This will cost him a game, at least, because the NFL isn't messing around with these head injuries anymore. The Eagles are likely even more sensitive, right now, to it due to the fact that they brought Westbrook back and he got another one right away. I wouldn't be shocked if Jackson gets shut down for a couple of games, especially with the way Avant is playing right now.
