The anticipation for the Eagles Sunday matchup against the Buccaneers just heightened with the news that wide receiver DeSean Jackson is a likely go.

According to ESPN.com, Jackson will clear the concussion protocol and line up against his former team, who he’s given fits in prior matchups.

Jackson suffered a concussion in the second half of the Buccaneers Week 1 win over the Saints and did not return to the game. Jackson had five catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter because of the head injury.

Last season, Jackson had 50 catches for 668 yards and three touchdowns for the Bucs.
