Jackson (ankle) was not on Carolina's injury report Wednesday ahead of Week 1 at the Falcons.
As expected, Jackson is set to start Sunday despite having to sit out of the Panthers' preseason finale as he dealt with an ankle ailment. He's not known for putting up huge stats and is therefore not an elite play at IDP, but he provides consistent play at corner opposite Jaycee Horn.

Coach Frank Reich said Jackson (ankle) should be ready to play Week 1 against the Falcons, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Jackson was injured in the Panthers' second preseason game and won't play in the exhibition finale, but it sounds like there isn't much concern about his availability for the season opener. Jackson is expected to open the year as the starting cornerback opposite Jaycee Horn.
Jackson injured his ankle in Friday's 21-19 exhibition loss to the Giants, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.
The severity of Jackson's injury is not known at this time. He was playing in his first game since Week 10 of the 2022 campaign, when he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. When healthy, he is expected to start at outside cornerback opposite Jaycee Horn.
Jackson (Achilles) participated in training camp practice Thursday, Augusta Stone and Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.
Jackson has been working his way back from an Achilles injury that he suffered in Week 10 against the Falcons. He was present at OTAs in June, but this was the first time he's taken the field as he worked with 2021 first-round pick Jaycee Horn. Jackson started at cornerback opposite Horn last season and should reclaim that role once he's fully healthy.
Head coach Frank Reich says Jackson (Achilles) should be ready for the start of training camp, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
Jackson was placed on injured reserve in November after he tore his Achilles tendon in Week 10 against the Falcons. The 27-year-old has been present at OTAs but has yet to participate as he continues to rehab from his injury. Jackson started at cornerback last season opposite 2021 first-round pick Jaycee Horn and should reclaim his key role in the Panthers' secondary once he's fully up to speed.
Jackson (Achilles) was present Tuesday but didn't participate in the first day of Carolina's OTAs, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.
This isn't surprising, as Jackson is still recovering from a torn Achilles he suffered last November, and it remains unclear when he'll be able to play again. The Panthers reworked Jackson's contract this offseason to create some cap savings, and whenever he's cleared, he figures to compete for the starting cornerback job opposite Jaycee Horn.
Jackson (Achilles) restructured his contract with the Panthers on Thursday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.
Jackson suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in November, and although he could be ready for the start of the season, he'll do so with a reworked contract. The cap savings this will create for Carolina is not yet clear, but Jackson was set for a $13.5 million cap hit in 2023, and part of the restructured deal will result in him getting a $4 million roster bonus, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. When healthy, Jackson should be one of the team's starting corners opposite Jaycee Horn.
