And Redskins coach Jim Zorn told Paolantonio that Clinton Portis, the NFL's leading rusher, would play Sunday.
Jacobs, who practiced Thursday and Friday, was injured two weeks ago in a win over the Baltimore Ravens.
He also practiced last week before being ruled out for a 37-29 victory against the Arizona Cardinals.
Portis has missed practice throughout the past couple of weeks with a sore knee but has yet to miss a game this season.
He leads the league with 1,206 yards on the ground.
