PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- DeSean Jackson's homecoming with the Eagles has hit a snag. Jackson is expected to miss about two weeks while dealing with an abdominal strain, according to ESPN's Tim McManus.

Jackson appeared to suffer the injury early in the first quarter of the Eagles' loss in Atlanta Sunday night and did not return to the game.

Jackson hauled in eight catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns vs. Washington in his first game back with the Eagles.
