BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- DeSean Jackson injured his left ankle during Friday afternoon's practice and did not return, the Eagles said.

The wide receiver went down during a seven-on-seven drill in which he was sandwiched in between safeties Kurt Coleman and Jaiquawn Jarrett. Jackson was slow to get up and then walked to the trainer's tent. He had his left ankle tapped and returned to the action, but he did not play.

Jackson was later asked if he was OK and he gave a thumbs up.

The Eagles had an assortment of other bumps and bruises during Thursday's session but every other player finished. Guard Danny Watkins made a brief stop in the trainer's tent to get his ankle tapped. Defensive end Vinny Curry made a pit stop in the tent.
