Redskins WR DeSean Jackson, Packers LB Clay Matthews active

Posted:

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson is active against the Green Bay Packers a week after missing a game with an injured shoulder.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is also active Sunday night; he sat out the past three games with a hamstring injury.

Jackson is Washington's top deep threat, although he is averaging a career-low 13.9 yards per catch and has scored only one touchdown this season. He was limited in practice this week.

Long snapper Nick Sundberg was inactive for the Redskins after hurting his back in the weight room during the week. Washington signed Rick Lovato on Saturday in case Sundberg couldn't play against Green Bay.

Redskins running back Matt Jones was a healthy scratch for the second consecutive week after losing his starting job to Robert Kelley.

The Packers already had said guard T.J. Lang (foot) and linebacker Jake Ryan (ankle) wouldn't face the Redskins.
