ASHBURN — Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson bruised his left knee on Sunday and is day to day according to coach Jay Gruden. Jackson sustained the injury in the third quarter of the Redskins’ win against the Bears after making a 29-yard catch.

Jackson was noticeably hobbled by the injury but remained in the game.

“I considered [taking him out], I kind of left it up to him,” Gruden said. “He’s pretty good about his body and he felt like he could go back in. He went back in there and hobbled around and tried to make some plays. I think he’ll be OK.”

Right tackle Morgan Moses missed nine plays while he was being evaluated for a concussion, but did not sustain one and returned to the game. Running back Chris Thompson, who has a torn labrum in his left shoulder, wide receiver Andre Roberts (knee) and strong safety Jeron Johnson (hamstring) were all inactive on Sunday, but Gruden said the three players are also day to day.

Defensive end Jason Hatcher played 12 snaps against the Bears, despite a pinched nerve in his neck that weakened his left shoulder. He also had an ankle injury. 

“He was a little sore,” Gruden said. “I really appreciate Jason fighting through that injury. A lot of guys probably wouldn’t have played with that [pinched nerve]. He strapped it up for us and gave us all he had. That’s what he’s all about, man. He’s been like that since we got him from Dallas. He’s one of the leaders that we talk about in the locker room. He won’t miss it. If he can walk, he’ll be out there playing.”
