An abdominal tear has limited Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson to just two games in 2019. But one NFL insider has a promising update for the ailing deep threat.

According to Eagles HC Doug Pederson via NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Jackson is expected to practice later this week. After that, the team will "see where he is" and whether he is able to play.

Jackson had eight receptions for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against Washington. It was his first game with Philadelphia since 2013.

But in Week 2, he left the game after just a few snaps due to the aforementioned ab injury. He has not practiced since.

The Eagles play the Chicago Bears in Philadelphia this coming Sunday before a Week 10 bye. After that, they host the New England Patriots and then the Seattle Seahawks.

At 4-4 on the season, the Philadelphia Eagles are right in the hunt for a wildcard spot in the NFL playoffs.

As big a jolt as Jackson's impending return will bring to the offense, it's the defense that needs to step up.

Philadelphia is 2-0 when holding opponents to under 20 points, and 0-2 when allowing at least 30.

Will DeSean Jackson's return be the catalyst for an Eagles playoff run?
