DeSean Jackson left practice and headed to the locker room early after injuring his ankle.
Following practice, coach Jay Gruden said Jackson got "cleated" and "twisted his ankle a hair" but doesn't think it's serious. The receiver is doubtful for Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, per Breer, according to a team source. Sadly, if Washington holds him out as a precaution, we won't get to watch a DJax versus Darrelle Revis matchup.
Some other injury notes we are tracking on Wednesday.
4. In other running back news, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Peyton Hillis' ankle injury appeared more serious than originally thought. "It's gonna be a little while" until he returns, said Coughlin. They are dropping like flies in the Giants' backfield.
5. Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz missed practice Wednesday. The guard said he injured his knee during the Hall of Fame Game. He tried to practice Tuesday but couldn't. Schwartz was a big piece of the Giants' attempt to revamp its weak line.
8. Two key pieces to the Pittsburgh Steelers' young defense missed practice. Jarvis Jones has missed time with a groin injury. Rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier also missed practice with a reported knee/leg injury. Coach Mike Tomlin characterized Shazier's injury as merely a boo-boo.
