Tanard Jackson, Jordan Black Join Redskins Practice

Tanard Jackson had his first practice with the Washington Redskins on Thursday afternoon at training camp. Jackson, a DC-area native and Bullis graduate, had been dealing with a calf injury but was moved off the preseason PUP list earlier this week and took the field for the first time. Jackson spent the first five years of his career with the Buccaneers before signing with the Skins in April. He's expected to provide depth in the defensive backfield, but missing the start of camp left him feeling like he needed to catch up. The free safety did give up a deep touchdown to Brandon Banks but he told The Washington Post that he was just happy to be back out there:

"I'm getting my legs back under me," Jackson said. "The first day out, it felt good to be back out there. The most important thing is I didn't have too many mental errors. I gave up a deep ball early in practice but, you know, it comes with time. I'm happy to be back out there."

In addition to Jackson, offensive tackle Jordan Black also joined the team for the first time on the practice field. The Notre Dame product was signed earlier in the week to provide line depth and spent Thursday working with the second team.
