Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson and coach Andy Reid are "all squared away" following a locker room confrontation Sunday, a high-level team source told NFL Network's Albert Breer Monday.

Jackson was reportedly distraught after being chewed out by Reid in full view of his teammates following the Eagles' 31-26 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, according to The Wilmington News Journal.

A source told The News Journal that Jackson had agitated Reid with his casual attitude before the game and during pre-game drills.

Jackson, who had two catches for 26 yards against the Bears, buried his face in his hands at his locker for about 20 minutes after Reid's scolding, and was consoled by running back LeSean McCoy and tight end Brent Celek, according to the The News Journal.

The newspaper reports that quarterback Michael Vick offered advice to Jackson. As Vick walked away, he told his receiver "C’mon, D-Jax, you’re my boy. I would never tell you nothin’ wrong."

The Eagles (7-4) had won three straight, but were unable to break off big plays against one of the league's stingiest defenses and fell into a tie with the New York Giants for the NFC East lead.

"It's going to be tough to put this one on the backburner," Vick said. "We have to do it."
