PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson briefly left Sunday's playoff game against Green Bay with an injured left knee. He returned late in the second quarter.

The Packers lost wide receiver Donald Driver in the fourth quarter with a knee injury and his return was questionable. He had five catches for 56 yards.

Jackson was hurt in the first quarter on a running play. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rolled up Jackson from behind. Jackson limped off the field and had his leg examined on the sideline before leaving for the locker room.

He returned to the sideline in the second quarter and rode a stationary bike while the Packers had the ball.

Jackson was back on the field when the Eagles took over after Aaron Rodgers threw a TD pass to give Green Bay a 14-0 lead.

Jackson had 47 catches for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns this season. He had no catches before the injury.
