The Philadelphia Eagles season took two more hits Tuesday.
The team announced that wide receiver DeSean Jackson will miss the rest of the season with multiple broken ribs, and defensive end Jason Babin has been released.
Jackson was hurt on a 2-yard end-around run in the first quarter of Monday's 30-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
The Eagles are already without quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy, who are both dealing with concussions.
Jackson leads the Eagles with 45 catches for 700 and two touchdowns.
The Eagles also parted ways with Babin, who made the 2011 Pro-Bowl.
"We appreciate everything that Jason has given this team over the last couple of years," Reid said. "We wish him all the best as he continues his career. By releasing him today, this gives us an opportunity to give more playing time to some of younger guys in the defensive line rotation."
