The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday afternoon that free safety Marlin Jackson has suffered a torn right Achilles tendon and will miss the entire 2010 season.
The injury occurred after the Eagles had moved indoors for afternoon OTAs due to thunderstorms. While covering Jeremy Maclin during 7-on-7 drills, Jackson came up lame without contact. He immediately dropped to the carpet and was carted off the field, and after an MRI, the extent of the injury was announced a couple of hours later.
Jackson was already trying to recover from a torn right ACL, and the latest injury is a setback that may possibly even be career threatening, according to some sources.
But what does it mean for everyone else?
