DeSean Jackson still 'very sore' from collision with Dunta Robinson

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who suffered a concussion when he was hit hard by Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson will not play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

Eagles Coach Andy Reid said that Jackson remains very sore and had not passed a concussion test as of early Wednesday afternoon.

"His discomfort is just where he took the blow, on the right side, right shoulder area kind of up through the neck area," Reid said. "But he's working through that and he's sharp mentally. . . . But he's very sore right now."

The Eagles have their bye the following week, giving Jackson more time to recover from his second concussion in less than a year.

Robinson will appeal the $50,000 he was fined for the hit.
