Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has left training camp after being carted off the field with a back injury during an afternoon practice.

The Eagles' leading receiver caught a pass Saturday and stumbled to the ground, landing on his back. He then needed help to the sidelines. Moments later, a cart came and took him to the workout facility.

Team officials said Jackson was evaluated by the medical staff. His injuries don't seem to be too severe. Jackson was seen walking out of the team's locker room, getting into his car and driving away from camp about an hour after the injury.

Team sources tell NBC Philadelphia's Howard Eskin Jackson will be fine.

The squad was running a no-pads 7-on-7 drill when Jackson was hurt. The wide receiver didn't make contact with other players, but apparently twisted awkwardly to make a 12-yard catch.

Jackson, one of the most dynamic playmakers in the league, had a career year in 2009 with 63 catches for 1,167 yards and nine
touchdowns for the Eagles.
