Asa Jackson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Jackson suffered a severely sprained toe during last weekend's game and will now be sidelined until at least Week 15. His absence is a considerable blow to the Ravens' defense, as Jackson started four of the team's five games thus far due to fellow cornerback Lardarius Webb (back) being injured. Prior to going down Sunday, Jackson had registered 19 tackles (16 solo) on the campaign. In a corresponding roster move, Baltimore signed Dominique Franks on Wednesday to improve the depth of their secondary, where nickel cornerback Chykie Brown is expected to assume an expanded role moving forward.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The report suggests that Jackson -- who has 19 tackles in five games to date -- could be placed on injured reserve/designated to return by the Ravens, which would represent a significant hit to the team's depth at cornerback.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Jackson's first two seasons were defined by a pair of suspensions for violating the NFL's drug policy, but he may get a shot to compete for the nickleback role in 2014.
A four-game PED suspension stained Jackson's rookie season, although it isn't as if he had a significant role before the punishment came down. The former fifth-round pick enters his second professional season on the roster bubble.
Jackson has intriguing athleticism and some potential as a return man, but is unlikely to be anything more than a fifth cornerback in 2012.
