The Washington Redskins receiver suffered an injured right shoulder when he ran into a sled Thursday during practice. Redskins coach Jay Gruden later said that Jackson fell near a tackling sled.

Jackson suffered a Grade 2 separated shoulder and is expected to miss a few weeks, according to a source informed of the situation, per NFL Media's Rand GetlinESPN was first to report.

While he might sit out preseason games, assuming the shoulder injury doesn't linger, it shouldn't limit the speedsters' production in 2015 as the Redskins' No. 1 target.
