RICHMOND—DeSean Jackson did not practice on Saturday due to some discomfort in his legs, Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said. 

“We held DeSean out,” Gruden said. “He had a little soreness in his legs.” 

Jackson did not speak to reporters.

Gruden did not specify the precise nature of the soreness hampering the star wide receiver, who watched practice from the sidelines in a jersey and shorts. The session marked the second in full-pads—including game pants—since training camp opened 10 days ago.

The team is off Sunday and will return to the Bon Secours Training Center on Monday for the first of three joint practice with the Patriots. 

“Just trying to keep him fresh,” Gruden said. “He’s been running a lot.”
