The Vikings' defense will have one less headache to deal with on Sunday when they play a Washington Redskins team that will be without dynamic wide receiver, DeSean Jackson according to Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post.

Jackson has been dealing with issues to his rotator cuff and missed the team's practices on Wednesday and Thursday.

The wide receiver has 30 receptions this season for 416 yards and 1 touchdown. He's also no stranger to the big play either, as 8 of those catches have gone for 20+ yards this season.

Washington's quarterback, Kirk Cousins, will have to look elsewhere for the big play when he goes up against Minnesota's defense.

The Vikings still have to worry about second-year wideout Jamison Crowder, who leads the Redskins in receptions, yards and receiving touchdowns.

The Redskins are also one of the best passing teams in the NFL, ranking third in passing yards and Cousins ranks in the top ten in quarterback rating this season.

Minnesota is looking to snap their three-game losing streak on Sunday when they visit Washington.
