ASHBURN, Va. -- Receiver DeSean Jackson returned to practice -- and it was noticeable. Jackson wasn't quite fully recovered from his mild left hamstring pull, but he was good enough to remind everyone why the Washington Redskins signed him.

Jackson stood out in Wednesday's organized team activity, getting behind the defense on one occasion and catching another long pass in tight coverage (both from Robert Griffin III).

"He feels good running straight," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "It's just sometimes coming out of cuts he's still a little bit tentative and we're just watching him. But he looked good obviously."

Jackson, who signed with Washington in early April, was unavailable to the media, according to the public relations department. But Gruden said it was good to have him back on the field. Jackson injured his hamstring on the third day of OTA workouts two weeks ago.

"It's good to see him out there push it a little bit for the team and everybody else," Jay Gruden said. "But he did a good job. He's probably working through a little bit of pain just a little bit."
