Redskins' DeSean Jackson expected to play Sunday at Giants

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Wide receiver DeSean Jackson is expected to play for the Washington Redskins at the New York Giants on Sunday.

After sitting out practice earlier in the week because of knee and ankle injuries, Jackson participated Friday and coach Jay Gruden said afterward: ''Based on the injury report, he'll be ready to roll.''

Players listed as questionable include center Kory Lichtensteiger with back spasms, rookie receiver Josh Doctson with an Achilles injury, rookie linebacker Su'a Cravens with a hip problem, and defensive lineman Chris Baker with rib, elbow, toe and knee issues.

The Redskins (0-2) will try to avoid falling three games behind the Giants (2-0) in the NFC East.
