Desean Jackson once again proves he is faster than everyone else
After one of the scariest hits anyone has ever seen in the NFL, no one would've blamed Desean Jackson for taking his time in getting back to the field. Well 17 days later, after only missing one game Jackson returned to the practice field for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver sustained a concussion when he took a vicious helmet-first shot from Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson in Philadelphia's 31-17 win over Atlanta on Oct. 17.
Jackson laid flat on the ground, motionless after the hit. Robinson was immobile for a bit, too.
But Jackson could be back on the field when the Eagles (4-3) host Indianapolis (5-2) on Sunday. He has passed post-concussion testing, and took part in his first full practice session.
Just add this to Jackson's resume as one of the fastest players in the NFL, not only does he blaze by defensive backs but he was months ahead of Eagles wide receivers in criticizing Donovan McNabb
