Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson is doing everything he can on and off the field.
Jackson on Tuesday night took 50 children on a shopping spree at a Walmart in South Philadelphia, marking it at least his fifth year in a row doing so, according to ABC Philadelphia.
Feeling festive before Christmas Day, Jackson gave each kid a $50 gift card through his “Shop with a Jock” event.
Jackson, who has only played in three games the entire football season, injured his abdomen in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons. He came back Week 9 versus the Chicago Bears but reinjured his abdomen once more.
With the Eagles in a must-win game this Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys for NFC East supremacy, there is a small chance Jackson can return for the playoffs.
“I’m doing everything I can to continuously put myself in the best position to get 100 percent, and even better than that, 110 percent, “Jackson said. “So ya know, just taking it day by day, but we’ll see when the time presents itself.”
Jackson caught the ball nine times for 159 yards and two touchdowns in three games this year.
