Fred Jackson, who had been dealing with a sore wrist and thumb had the ailment re-aggravated on Tuesday in practice when he was hit by Donte Whitner on a running play.

Jackson was in serious pain and stayed down on the turf for a bit before getting to his feet and heading to the locker room with trainers.

“Fred got hit in the thumb and we’re hoping it’s okay,” said head coach Dick Jauron. “They took him in and looked at it and they’ll probably x-ray it too. It’s a little bit above the thumb so I don’t want to say it’s a thumb. He had fine movement in the thumb, so it’s more up in the wrist area.”

Jackson’s wrist was heavily taped going into practice Tuesday. More is expected to be known on Wednesday.
