WR Jackson active for Redskins, Eli in for Giants
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Giants nemesis DeSean Jackson and quarterback Colt McCoy are active for the Washington Redskins' game against the New York Giants.
Jackson has seven career touchdowns against the Giants. He and McCoy came into Sunday's game listed as questionable. Jackson has a shin injury and McCoy a neck problem.
Eli Manning will be making his 165th consecutive start for the Giants. They had listed him on their injury report with a back issue that Manning downplayed as a formality to satisfy the league.
Giants middle linebacker Jameel McClain also is starting despite a knee injury that limited him in practice.
The Redskins are without two starters on defense - linebacker Keenan Robinson and safety Brandon Meriweather. Both were ruled out Friday.
