Seahawks DE Branden Jackson placed on IR

The Seattle Seahawks put defensive end Branden Jackson on IR after he was knocked unconscious during a team scrimmage. The injury occurred when Jackson knocked helmets with offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.

Pete Carroll, Seattle head coach, decided that Jackson will not play this season due to medical issues after discovering potential career ending spinal structure.

Jackson will spend the entire 2020 season on injured reserve. Carroll also states that the issue indicated could be career ending. Jackson’s injury is similar to Cliff Avril’s and Kam Chancellor’s; who did not play again.

Jackson spent the past three seasons with the Seahawks and played 36 games.
