Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has an abdominal strain that is expected to sideline him for two weeks, sources tell .

One doctor recommended surgery, which would have shelved him for about six weeks, but Jackson wants to return to action as soon as possible, so opted against it, a source said.

The 32-year old exited early in the first half against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night.

Jackson was brought back to via a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March to provide Carson Wentz with a bona fide deep threat. They connected for two 50-yard plus touchdowns in the opener against Washington.

Receiver Alshon Jeffery could also miss Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions after suffering a calf injury early against Atlanta.
