Jackson Getting Healthy After ACL Injury

The Patriots already appear to be loaded at wide out with the aquisition of both Randy Moss and Donte’ Stallworth, but the team is still encouraged by the news that reciever Chad Jackson is doing well in his rehab from a torn ACL.  As a matter a fact, Jackson’s rehab is going so good that Saturday’s Boston Globe is reporting he may be ready to go for the start of the regular season.

Jackson suffered the injury when playing special teams late in the game in the Pats 38-34 loss to the Colts in the AFC Title game.  Agents David Canter and Christina Phillips told the Globe that their client should not just simply be placed on the physicall-unable-to-perform or put on injured reserve.

“I don’t expect Chad to be 100 percent in one month, out there running routes at full speed or to be practicing at full speed,” said Canter in Saturday’s paper. “But if it’s, ‘Could he be ready to do that by the start of the season?’ then sure.” Jackson finished with 13 catches for 152 yards and three touchdowns in 12 regular-season games. He didn’t catch a pass in the postseason.
