Former Cal star wideout DeSean Jackson was placed on injured reserve with fractured ribs on Tuesday, ending his season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Given the sorry state of the team, a long rest might be welcome.
From 2005 through ’07, Jackson caught 162 passes for 2,423 yards and 22 touchdowns at Cal. In five NFL seasons, all with the Eagles, Jackson has caught 275 passes for 4,796 yards and 23 TDs. He also has returned four punts for touchdowns.
