Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson said his collision with Atlanta's Dunta Robinson felt "like a car accident" and that he lost consciousness for a few minutes.
Jackson, speaking for the first time since suffering a concussion Oct.17, said in his weekly appearance via Skype on Comcast SportsNet's Daily News Live that he is hopeful of returning when the Eagles come back from the bye against the Colts but is "taking it day-by-day." The Eagles said Monday Jackson has passed head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder's concussion tests and now will be evaluated by an independent neurologist, the last step toward being cleared to practice and play.
"Day-by-day I'm getting a lot better," Jackson said. He said he is lifting weights but has not tried to run yet.
He did not say he definitely will be back against the Colts.
