Jackson warmed up earlier in the evening to test out his ankle, and obviously, he passed the test.

He hinted at playing on Thursday night via his Instagram story on Thursday afternoon.

“Y’all know what time it is!!” Jackson said on his story in front of a picture of himself at training camp.

Jackson had surgery on Aug. 23 on his ankle to remove an extra bone he was born with that was giving him pain.

Week 1 was the first game Jackson missed since his rookie season back in 2018.

The 26-year-old was undrafted in 2018 out of Maryland; he also played one year with the Florida Gators.
