The bad news keeps piling up for the Redskins.

DeSean Jackson injured his hamstring running a deep route, which Kirk Cousins overthrew, during the first quarter against the Dolphins.

Jackson didn't return during the Redskins' 17-10 loss.

Here are other injuries we're keeping tabs on during Week 1:

1. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was carted into the locker room in the fourth quarter with a torn Achilles, coach John Harbaugh revealed after the game. He will miss the remainder of the season.

2. The Cowboys and Tony Romo were forced to complete their comeback win over the Giants without the services of star wide receiver Dez Bryant, who they'll be without for extended time. Bryant broke a bone in his foot during the win and will miss four to six weeks, per Jason Garrett.

3. Jets rookie linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin (head/neck) was taken to the hospital. The third-round pick left the field on a spinal board after falling motionless under a scrum for a loose ball. He tried to get to his feet at first, but then crumbled to the ground and was attended to by the Jets' medical staff.

Mauldin's agent, Cameron Hahn, told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, "He has feeling in all his extremities and his scans have all been clean. Keep him overnight and monitor him and continue some testing but so far so good."
