Going to Pittsburgh in trade

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-12

The Steelers are set to acquire Jackson from the Panthers in the Diontae Johnson trade, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Jackson was on his way out of Carolina one way or another due to an elevated cap number. In Pittsburgh, he gives the Steelers an experienced corner to pair with 2023 second-rounder Joey Porter. The 55th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Jackson started 76 games across six seasons for the Panthers, picking off 14 passes.

Likely done in Carolina

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-04

Jackson is expected to be released or traded by the Panthers before March 16, when he is due a $4 million roster bonus, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Jackson played 16 games last year in his sixth season with Carolina, but it appears the veteran corner will not spend his seventh NFL campaign with the franchise. He ended 2023 with 59 combined tackles, five passes defended and no interceptions. His release would save the team $5.9 million in cap space this offseason.

Ends season interception-less

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

Jackson finished the regular season with 59 tackles (49 solo), zero interceptions on five passes defended and one fumble forced in 16 games.

Jackson returned from last season's Achilles tear to play the most games since his 2018 rookie year. However, for the first time in his career, Jackson failed to intercept a pass. With the Panthers having a potential out from his contract, it remains to be seen whether a new front office will elect to bring Jackson back for the 2024 campaign.

Not on Week 16 injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-22

Jackson (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Jackson's name was removed from the injury report entirely, suggesting he's good to go for Sunday's game. He left Carolina's previous game due to a back injury but is expected to handle his usual starting cornerback role against the Packers.

Still tending to injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-20

Jackson (back) did not practice Wednesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Jackson suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons and was unable to return to the game. He'll work to get back on the field Thursday, as the Panthers prep for Sunday's game against the Packers. If He's ultimately unable to play, CJ Henderson and Jeremy Chinn would be candidates to slide in for him opposite Jaycee Horn at cornerback.

Questionable to return Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Jackson (back) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson exited the game after a hit on wide receiver Drake London. Jeremy Chinn and CJ Henderson will pick up the snaps on defense in Jackson's absence.

Active Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-05

Jackson (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson practiced all week before appearing on the injury report after Friday's session. The starting left cornerback has 20 tackles and a forced fumble in six games this season.

Questionable with quad injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-03

Jackson (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Jackson practiced without limitations in all three of Carolina's practices during the week, but he was added to the injury report after Friday's practice. It's possible that he picked up the quadriceps injury late in practice Friday, and the starting cornerback's availability likely won't be updated until the Panthers release their inactives list 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Resumes practicing in full

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-11

Jackson (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

Jackson missed Week 5 after being forced out early Week 4 versus the Vikings, but he now looks back to full health. Having the starting cornerback back at full strength will be a notable boon for Carolina's secondary, which faces the difficult task of containing the Dolphins' offense on Sunday.
