The Cleveland Browns are glad to see linebcker D'Qwell Jackson back on the field.
If you saw last Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Browns Stadium, you would have never known that Jackson had been off the field for nearly two years.
“It felt great," said Jackson. "Finally, it’s one that counted. I thought I had a pretty decent preseason so I just wanted to have some carryover. It didn’t surprise me, but it was definitely a great feeling to get back out there to get a feel of the system. The scheme allows myself and our backers to go out and make a tremendous amount of plays.”
Jackson had 11 total tackles against the Bengals and two quarterback sacks.
Even though Peyton Manning will not be on the Indianapolis Colts' starting quarterback, Jackson knows Kerry Collins is a veteran signal caller and will be in the flow of the offense.
"He’s a veteran guy so I know he’s going to get back in stride. He can fix things in a hurry. The guy has been playing for a number of years now so he’s a veteran. That’s one of the reasons why they brought him in so we can’t take him for granted, not for one second," said Jackson.
You'll be able to hear Sunday's game between the Browns and the Colts on 97.5 WONE.
