Vincent Jackson to get the Start at WR Sunday

Wide receiver Vincent Jackson will start on Sunday, head coach Norv Turner announced on Wednesday.

Jackson was added to the 53-man roster earlier this week after signing his one-year restricted free agent tender on October 26. Prior to signing the tender, the Chargers had placed Jackson on the “exempt” list, requiring him to sit out for three games.

The 6-5, 240-pound Jackson caught 68 passes for 1,167 yards and 9 touchdowns last season, earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl. Jackson has 198 receptions for 3,400 yards and 25 touchdowns since being chosen by the Chargers in the second-round (61st overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Colorado State.
