ASHBURN, Va. -- DeSean Jackson wore a white visor instead of a helmet to practice. He sat on the stationary bicycle while his Washington Redskins teammates were stretching. Instead of pedaling, he slowly worked the handlebars back and forth, keeping the muscles loose in his sprained left shoulder. This is the long-anticipated "return to Philly" week for Jackson, his chance to show the Philadelphia Eagles they were woefully mistaken when they suddenly released him in late March with barely a word of explanation. "Obviously its going to be a huge game for myself," Jackson said, "and something I always looked forward to ever since everything went down the way it went down." But fate has a way of complicating such tidy story lines. Jackson fell on his shoulder and sprained the AC joint in the first quarter of Sundays win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hes determined to play -- he said Wednesday "I dont plan on missing this game" -- but he will need to be a quick healer if hes to face the Eagles this weekend. "Playing a team that Ive been traded from, released from, I kind of know how that feels," cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "I know hes going to be juiced up. Hes trying to get back out there on that field as quick as possible." Jackson didnt practice Wednesday or Thursday, so its hard to get a handle on his status for Sunday. Much will depend on whether he can regain the full range of motion with his shoulder, and whether he can stand the pain if he gets hit. "Were going to push him a little bit more tomorrow, to see where hes at," coach Jay Gruden said. Players face former teams all the time, but Jacksons circumstance is more curious than most. He caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards last season in the first year of coach Chip Kellys high-paced offence, but the Eagles tried to trade him and then simply released him. Asked this week why he let Jackson go, Kelly stuck to the "just going in a different direction" company line and suggested that Jackson (5-foot-10, 178 pounds) was too small. "Yeah, just trying to build the overall team in terms of what we were looking for offensively and how we wanted to get bigger at the wideout spot," Kelly said, "and thats what we did." Jacksons release coincided with stories about off-the-field problems, and he released at statement at the time denying that he was a member of a gang. Kelly said this week that off-field issues had "zero" influence on the teams decision, and Jackson tried to make it sound as if he doesnt care anymore. "They made the decision. They moved on. I moved on," Jackson said. "Im just blessed to have a second opportunity to play here in Washington, and, you know, its not about them anymore. Its about what were doing over here." Less than a week after getting cut, Jackson was snapped up by the Redskins and given a three-year, $24 million contract with $16 million guaranteed. Hes kept a relatively low profile so far in Washington, with barely a whiff of trouble. "As far as anything you do in life, being in the NFL and being in the position that Im at in my career, regardless of what it is, you kind of have to overanalyze anything you do," Jackson said. "Being in the NFL, its like youre under a microscope and everything you do is being looked at. Being able to come here to Washington and play for the Redskins, since Day 1, since I stepped in here with this organization, I was just myself. I didnt really change. They accepted me for who I was." Philly fans are well-known for their hostility. Jackson, if he plays, is ready for whatever they dish out. "I felt I put it on the line for them when I played there, and (I know) what Ive done to help that organization win games," he said. "As far as if they congratulate me or boo me or whatever the case may be, Im ready for whatever it is." Vapormax Flyknit 3 White And Black

PARIS -- Milos Raonic hopes his recent success on clay leads to a long run at the French Open. The Canadian star won his opening match at the second Grand Slam of the year on Sunday, beating Australian wildcard Nick Kyrgios 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 to reach the second round. Raonic, the eighth seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed exactly two hours to advance against one of the games rising young stars. He also beat an Australian opponent for the first time at a Grand Slam after losing to Carsten Ball at the 2010 U.S. Open and Lleyton Hewitt at the 2012 Australian Open. He won on his third match point, sealing victory with a 27th ace. Raonic, who came to Roland Garros from a Rome semifinal last weekend, finished with 50 winners and 30 unforced errors, breaking on four of ten chances. "I felt very good, I was able to do the things I wanted to do," said Raonic, who next plays one of two Czechs, Lukas Rosol of Jiri Vesely. "In the first round you go in not knowing exactly how things are going to play out. When it mattered, I was able to put forward the right attitude and the right level of tennis. Im happy with that." Raonic has a career record of 32-23 on clay courts, compared to 100-42 on hard surfaces that dont deaden his powerful serve. But Raonic had two quarter-final appearances as well as the Rome semifinal in four clay-court tournaments leading up to the French Open. Hes trying to go beyond the third round at Roland Garros for the first time in his career. Later Sunday, sixth seed Tomas Berdych beat Canadian qualifier Peter Polansky of Thornhill 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. Polansky, ranked 137th and playing in only his sixth career singles main draw at a major, last played a Grand Slam at the 2010 US Open. He was successful on only one of six break points while committing 21 unforced errors with 15 winners.dddddddddddd "Its good to be back in the main draw of a slam," said Polansky. "I played well and enjoyed it. I was hoping to get a better draw, there are a lot of guys I could have beaten today. "I played well, I just came up a it short. But I take a lot of positives out of the last few weeks. Maybe I have more belief in my game now that Im older." Raonic said that despite heavy conditions in wet Paris, the courts held up well compared to Rome. "Theyre quite similar, though here they can change a little bit more due to the cloud coverage and not really that much sun the last few days," he said. "The ball wasnt bouncing as much as it had actually the last days on the outside courts. The 23-year-old Raonic used his experience against the young Australian, reducing Kyrgios to racket-hurling frustration after breaking immediately after losing serve in the second set. Raonic began the third set with a break for 2-0, lost it, but again gained the lead 4-2 on his way to victory. Raonic said that he was having trouble at times on serve, but managed to fight through the problem. "I was getting it together when it mattered, and thats all I can really ask," he said. "There was some moments where I was losing a little bit of concentration on my level, and I was able to put it together when I was in the important moments." After answering on-court questions in French, Raonic then said he would tweet a message in the language later. He said he would have the tweet proofed by an expert speaker before broadcasting it to his 143,000 followers. ' ' '
