Hamstring keeps Chargers’ Jackson out of practice

Chargers WR Vincent Jackson missed Wednesday’s practice with a hamstring injury, leaving some concern about his availability, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, for Sunday’s game against Denver.

Jackson hasn’t missed a game this season, but has dealt with a series of nagging injuries — last week, he was questionable on the injury due to an abdominal issue. Keep an eye on the situation, because if Jackson plays, he will face a defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Yes, he’ll line up against CB Champ Bailey, but Jackson is a fantasy must-start in any situation. As Jason Smith points out, that’s nothing to fear anyway.

If Jackson can’t go, look for Patrick Crayton to see extra snaps.
