Eagles WR Jackson hurts left knee vs. Packers but returns

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson left Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Green Bay Packers with an injured left knee, but he returned with 5:15 remaining in the first half.

Jackson was hurt during on a first-quarter running play when Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rolled him up from behind. Jackson limped off the field and had his leg examined on the sideline before leaving for the locker room.

Jackson returned to the sideline during the second quarter and rode a stationary bike while the Packers had the ball. After Green Bay scored a touchdown to take a 14-0 lead, Jackson took the field with Philadelphia's offense.

Jackson made 47 catches for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns this season. He didn't have any catches Sunday before the injury.
