Jackson (knee) signed his exclusive rights tender with the Eagles on Monday.
Analysis: Jackson will return to Philadelphia for the 2023 season after accepting his roster tender. The tight end finished the 2022 campaign on injured reserve with a knee injury and will operate as a depth option behind starter Dallas Goedert once healthy. Jackson failed to log a snap with the active roster last year, something he'll look to change in his third season with the Eagles.

Philadelphia placed Jackson (knee) on its injured reserve list Friday.
Analysis: Jackson has dealt with lingering knee issues all year, and with regular starting tight end Dallas Goedert having returned from an injured reserve list stint of his own Tuesday, the Eagles saw fit to shut Jackson down for the rest of this season. He'll finish his 2022 campaign without having played a snap.

Jackson (knee) is out for Saturday's game against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Jackson sat out the first nine games of the season while on the reserve/PUP list with a knee injury, and he has yet to record a catch since being activated ahead of Week 11. While the nature of this new knee issue is unclear, it's likely the 25-year-old would have been ruled inactive Week 16 anyways after No. 1 tight end Dallas Goedert was activated from IR on Tuesday. Expect Jackson to provide depth behind Jack Stoll and Grant Calcaterra when healthy moving forward.

Philadelphia activated Jackson (knee) from the reserve/PUP list Wednesday.
Analysis: Jackson will join the 53-man roster for the first time since tearing his ACL during the Eagles' regular-season finale last year. He'll likely operate in a rotational role behind Grant Calcaterra and Jack Stoll during his season debut, but all three tight ends are candidates for increased roles while Dallas Goedert (shoulder) is on IR.

Philadelphia designated Jackson (knee) to return from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday.
Analysis: Jackson tore his ACL during the Eagles' regular-season finale last season and underwent surgery in January. He missed the first seven games of the 2022 campaign while on the PUP list but will return to practice Wednesday. With the move, Jackson will now have a 21-day window to be added to the Eagles' active roster, but if he isn't, the undrafted tight end out of Buffalo will revert back to the PUP list for the remainder of the season.

Jackson (knee) was placed on the active/PUP list Wednesday.
Analysis: Jackson tore his ACL in the Eagles' Week 18 loss to the Cowboys and underwent successful surgery in January to repair it. His current inability to return to practice shouldn't be a surprise, and his status for Week 1 is up in the air,
Jul 27, 2022 8:02 AM EST
Jackson underwent successful surgery to repair his torn ACL on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Jackson tore his ACL during the Eagles' Week 18 loss to the Cowboys and will now shift his focus toward his lengthy recovery process. Since the injury happened so late in the 2021 campaign, it's not yet clear whether he'll be ready for training camp or Week 1 in 2022.
Jan 27, 2022 12:13 PM EST
Jackson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: Jackson suffered a torn ACL during Saturday's loss to Dallas, so it's no surprise to see him headed toward injured reserve. The 24-year-old is unlikely to be fully recovered in time for training camp and could miss the start of the 2022 campaign.
Jan 10, 2022 4:00 PM EST
Jackson (knee) suffered a torn ACL against the Cowboys on Saturday an MRI revealed, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Jackson recorded three catches on five targets for 22 yards and his first NFL touchdown before the injury. He'll now face a long recovery that will likely force him to miss the bulk of the Eagles' offseason on-field programs. He'll work to return healthy in 2022.
Jan 9, 2022 10:50 AM EST
Jackson is slated to undergo an MRI on his knee, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Per the report, early indications are that Jackson didn't suffer an ACL injury prior to exiting Saturday's loss to the Cowboys, a contest in which the tight end logged three catches on five targets for 22 yards and a touchdown. Jackson's expanded role in Week 18 was due to Dallas Goedert and Jack Stoll being on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but one or both could be cleared for action in advance of the Eagles' postseason opener.
Jan 9, 2022 5:04 AM EST
Jackson (knee) will not return Saturday against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Jackson injured his knee on punt coverage in the second half Saturday. He was having issues with putting weight on his leg and exited the game with trainers assistance. Before exiting, Jackson had three catches on five targets for 22 yards and a touchdown. All the firsts of his career.
Jan 8, 2022 8:03 PM EST
Jackson (back) was activated from the designated to return list on Saturday.
Analysis: Jackson was placed on IR back on Sept. 2 after fracturing his back in mid-August. The Buffalo product and converted quarterback impressed in camp enough to stick around. Now that he is healthy, he looks to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Chargers.
Nov 6, 2021 1:43 PM EST
The Eagles may not be likely to add Jackson (back) to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
Analysis: The Eagles could realistically be willing to take their time with Jackson, who is still working his way back from an injury and, as a former quarterback, learning the subtleties of the tight end position. The team activated Dallas Goedert from the COVID-19 list Wednesday, and Richard Rodgers is available to bump up from the practice squad in case more depth is required for Week 7.
Oct 21, 2021 8:41 AM EST
The Eagles designated Jackson (back) to return from injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Jackson will have a 21-day period to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, he will return to injured reserve for the remainder of the season. If he is activated for Week 7, the 6-foot-7 tight end will have an opportunity for extended playing time with Zach Ertz now in Arizona and Dallas Goedert on the COVID-19 list.
Oct 20, 2021 8:45 AM EST
Jackson (back) will get some playing time when he returns from injury now that Zach Ertz has been dealt to the Cardinals, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.
Analysis: Jackson is still working his way back from an injury suffered in training camp, but the Eagles liked what they saw in the preseason from the converted quarterback and most likely would have found roster space for him had he not been placed on IR. Now, he has a spot for sure when he returns, and GM Howie Roseman has said the team wants to see the Buffalo product get a chance to show he can produce in real games.
Oct 15, 2021 9:25 PM EST
Jackson (back) is still in the process of rehabbing his injury, coach Nick Sirianni revealed Friday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Jackson has been sidelined since mid-August, when he suffered a fracture in his back. This update suggests the tight end's return certainly isn't imminent, though Sirianni didn't divulge a concrete timetable.
Oct 15, 2021 10:26 AM EST
Jackson (back) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Jackson suffered a back fracture in mid-August that carries a recovery timetable of 8-to-10 weeks, and he won't be eligible to return until at least Week 4 against Kansas City. The 23-year-old had a strong camp prior to his injury but will have to wait to make his season debut.
Sep 2, 2021 10:27 AM EST
Jackson has a fractured bone in his back and is facing a recovery timeline of 8-to-10 weeks, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Analysis: The QB-turned-TE reportedly had a strong training camp, with Kempski noting that Jackson could still make the team. He'll be ruled out for the year if the Eagles place him on injured reserve this preseason, but not if they wait until after the final round of cuts.
Aug 18, 2021 9:21 AM EST
Tyree Jackson has converted to tight end and has a good shot to make the Eagles, especially if Zach Ertz is traded, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Jackson was unable to latch on to an NFL roster as a reserve quarterback, so the 6'7" Buffalo product made the switch to tight end in November 2020. He caught two balls for 32 yards in the Eagles' preseason opener and has shown good hands and the ability to get open while running good routes so far in training camp. The team is likely to keep only three tight ends, and right now, Dallas Goedert, Zach Ertz, and Richard Rodgers are all listed ahead of Jackson on the depth chart. While an Ertz trade would seemingly assure the 23-year-old a place on the team, his potential at the new position could entice Philadelphia to keep him over Rodgers if Ertz stays put.
