DeSean Jackson’s concussion considered severe

According to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, DeSean Jackson suffered memory loss when he was concussed today in the Eagles’ 31-17 win over the Falcons.

Jackson suffered the concussion when Dunta Robinson lowered his shoulder and connected with the receiver’s head, knocking him out immediately. Robinson was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver and neither of them came back into the game after walking off the field with the help of trainers.

Chances are that Jackson will miss next week’s game at Tennessee, but the good news is that the Eagles have a bye in Week 8. They play at home against the Colts in Week 9, so hopefully Jackson will be back by then. He took one hell of a hit.

I would imagine that Robinson will get fined, although it wasn’t helmet-to-helmet and it certainly wasn’t a cheap shot.

Here’s a little humor for your Friday afternoon:

I’ll never forget that LSU-Kentucky game from 2002. I was sitting in a hotel room and someone was about to turn off the TV so we could head out for the afternoon and that play unfolded. We all stood in that hotel room for 15 more minutes in shock about what happened.
