Analysis: Jackson failed to make the Vikings' final roster after he caught five passes for 71 yards this preseason. The wide receiver has yet to make his NFL debut after going undrafted in 2019 and will likely end up starting the 2022 campaign on a new team's practice squad.

The Vikings have placed Jackson on their practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list.

The Rams waived Jackson on Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Jackson gave himself a shot to make the roster by catching three of five targets for 48 yards in the Rams' preseason finale. However, the 23-year-old was unable to secure a spot after being sidelined for nearly two weeks of training camp with a leg injury. The Syracuse product made the Rams' initial 53-man roster to start the 2020 campaign, but he remained inactive all season. He is a likely candidate to join the Rams' practice squad if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Jackson recorded three receptions on five targets for 48 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.
Analysis: Jackson had been held out of practice since Aug. 17 with a knee injury. However, he managed to return to the field in time for the team's final preseason game. All three of his receptions went for double-digit gains, the longest of which was 23 yards. Jackson received positive reports for his play throughout training camp, though it's far from a lock that he will be on the roster for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Bears.

Jackson (knee) did not participate in Monday's practice, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Jackson didn't see the field during the 2020 regular season.
Analysis: A late-bloomer at Syracuse, Jackson piled up 66 receptions, 1,023 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns over 12 games in his final season with the Orange. While he wasn't active for a single game this year for the Rams, there projects to be some offseason turnover at wide receiver, and Jackson will compete for playing time in training camp. Just note, he's a long shot to carve out a meaningful role and return fantasy value out of the gate next September.

Jackson (coach's decision) will not suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Bills, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The undrafted rookie from Syracuse showed enough upside in training camp to merit a spot on the Rams' 53-man roster, though he has yet to appear in any of the team's first three games. Ahead of him on the depth chart, Van Jefferson and Nsimba Webster slot into backup roles at wide receiver.

Jackson made the Rams' 53-man roster, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: A late-bloomer at Syracuse, Jackson racked up an impressive 66 receptions for 1,023 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior last year. He's currently sixth on the wide receiver depth chart for Los Angeles, so he's probably a long shot to make a fantasy splash early in 2020.
