"No alarms here. That was part of the program that (trainer) Reggie (Scott) and I decided way back," coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "This gives him 48 hours to make sure were OK. Hell be back on Monday."

No practice is planned for Sunday.

So far, Jackson has had no problems with his back during training camp. "He seems to be fine," Spagnuolo said. "He said to Reggie the other day that it feels exactly where it should be. He does want to push it a little bit next week, and well do that. But I think hes right about on track."
