Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson sat out practice Thursday due to a calf injury, but he hopes to play Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

After appearing on Wednesday's injury report as a limited participant, Jackson didn't participate at all Thursday.

"It was just a spasm in my calf. I don't think it's too serious," Jackson said. "Hopefully I can still get out there this week. But going throughout the week, just being smart with it and getting the treatment and getting it ready to go. But, yeah, last week, playing 41 plays, I can't remember the last time I played that much.

"Just getting acclimated, getting back there and getting it out of my system, but like I said, I don't think it will be too big of an issue, but definitely be smart with it as well."

Jackson, 35, signed with the Raiders last month after the Los Angeles Rams agreed to release him. In three games for Las Vegas, Jackson has caught four passes for 140 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown in the Raiders' 36-33 Thanksgiving Day win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Raiders tight end Darren Waller (back, knee) did not practice Wednesday and Thursday due to injuries he picked up in the Cowboys game. Running back Josh Jacobs was a new addition to the injury report Thursday, as he was limited because of an ankle ailment.
