Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is expected to miss two weeks due to an abdominal strain, ESPN reported Tuesday.
Jackson chosen against a single doctor’s recommendation of operation, which would have kept him on the sidelines for around six months, according to the report.
The 32-year-old Jackson has been hurt from the first half of Sunday’s loss at the Atlanta Falcons.
He didn’t make a catch in that match later snagging eight passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles’ victory over the Washington Redskins in Week 1.
The Eagles brought back Jackson via exchange.
A second-round select by Philadelphia in 2008, Jackson spent years with the Eagles (2008-13), catching 356 moves for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns in 87 games.
Philadelphia wide receiver Alshon Jeffery can also miss Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions after leaving last week’s match.
