Browns LB Jackson back on field after pectoral injury

Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson will practice Friday for the first time since injuring his left pectoral muscle in August, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealerwrote on her Twitter page Friday.

Jackson was in the early stages of a comeback from a torn right pectoral muscle when he injured his left chest muscle during practice Aug. 10.

Jackson, 26, a second-round draft pick by the Browns in 2006, led the team with 95 total tackles in 2008.

Jackson had 59 tackles last season before suffering the right pectoral muscle injury during an Oct. 18 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, forcing him to miss the Browns' final 10 games.
