The Washington Redskins need to fire from all cylinders for the rest of the season, and that means everyone needs to be healthy.

And, fortunately for Washington, it sounds like their deep threat will be available this Sunday.

When CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir asked Jackson on his status, he allowed Redskins fans to breathe a sigh of relief.

“It’s all right,” Jackson said on Tuesday. “It’s a little sore and banged up a little bit. But it’s nothing too serious that would keep me out. I played through it.”

The Redskins were already without Jackson for six games earlier this season, and they can't afford to lose him at this point of the year. Since his return in Week 9, Jackson has 20 receptions for 335 yards and three touchdowns.
