DeSean Jackson, who will watch today's game from his South Philly home, issued a statement about his deactivation today. Jackson missed an Eagles special teams meeting Saturday, apparently because he overslept.
Spokesman Bobby McRae said Jackson told him he "made an honest mistake," but realizes there are consequences for his actions.
"In coming back, he will make sure he works hard and does everything he can to help the team and prove its trust in him is not misplaced."
McRae said: "DeSean will keep a positive attitude and do what he needs to do on the field. He wants to emphasize that this will not happen again."
