DeSean Jackson: It's 'a real stretch' to think he'll play Sunday, Andy Reid says

It's a "real stretch" to think that DeSean Jackson, who suffered a concussion on a powerful collision with Dunta Robinson, will be able to play this week, Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid said.

"DeSean Jackson has a concussion," Reid said Monday. "He is in the training room. He is in good spirits."

He was asked about a report that Jackson suffered memory loss after the hit. "You get hit like that, you're not going to remember everything," Reid said. "He remembered his touchdowns, he didn't remember the hit."

As for the hit itself, Reid said: "He got a pretty good jolt now. That was a big hit. I'm not sure I've seen one here quite like that one in our stadium. That was a big hit for both guys."
