Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson appeared to tweak a hamstring while running a deep route in Thursday’s offseason practice session.

Jackson, signed as a free agent this offseason, blew past rookie Bashaud Breeland down the left sideline and was barely overthrown by Robert Griffin III.  Afterward, Jackson walked gingerly to the sideline and was tended to by trainers.

He is scheduled to speak to reporters following practice.

Update: Jackson says hamstring is ‘just a little tight’
