ASHBURN — Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson was back at practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday because of knee and ankle issues. He was listed as “limited” on the practice report, but said after practice that he expects to play Sunday against the Giants. Jackson said he played through his injury during last week’s game.

“Feeling pretty good,” Jackson said. “The game’s not played Thursday. We still got a couple days left until the game’s played. I think I will be good by the time we get out there on Sunday.”

Jackson has never been shy about exchanging chatter with opponents, a stance that did not change this week. Wednesday, Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins labeled Jackson as only a deep threat. Thursday, Jackson was asked about Jenkins’ comments.

“Who?” Jackson said. “Who is the that? I don’t entertain that stuff, man. Hopefully, he’s still talking that when the game-time comes.”

EXTRA POINTS: Linebacker Martrell Spaight has cleared the concussion protocol and will be “full-go” in Friday’s practice, according to coach Jay Gruden. … Defensive lineman Chris Baker (rib/elbow/toe/knee) and left tackle Trent Williams (knee) were limited in Thursday’s practice. … Center Kory Lichtensteiger was also limited because of a back spasm. … Wide receiver Josh Doctson (Achilles tendon) remained limited in practice, as well.
