Jackson continues to be a no-show. This is no surprise. He skipped several practices last year, too.
Jackson's Instagram account indicated he is training in his native Los Angeles again this week. That will certainly cost him a $500,000 workout bonus due if he made 90 percent of these voluntary organized team activities.
Jackson is the only healthy Redskins player not to participate.
Meanwhile, Doctson suffered another foot injury. Last week the Redskins held him out of OTA practices because of a sore Achilles tendon.
This time it is a sore foot sustained in practice on Tuesday.
Doctson, who was Washington's first-round draft pick at No. 22 overall, has plenty of time to get healthy for training camp. But his injuries bear watching.
--Former Washington defensive end Stephen Bowen retired on Wednesday after a 10-year NFL career. Bowen actually finished his career with the New York Jets.
Bowen appeared in 15 games there last season and he played more years with the Dallas Cowboys (five) than with the Redskins (four). But Bowen, a New York native, made it clear in a post-practice press conference that he considered Washington home.
Three of Bowen's teammates were on hand Wednesday to watch his final chat with reporters -- quarterback Kirk Cousins, defensive end Chris Baker and defensive tackle Kedric Goldston.
Baker took the mic at one point and thanked Bowen for helping turn him from a practice-squad player into a starter.
In his first season with Washington, Bowen was nominated for the NFL's Ed Block Courage Award. He recorded six sacks that season shortly after the death of his son, Skyler, one of two twin boys born prematurely to Bowen's wife, Tiffany, in June, 2011, and later the death of his mother-in-law Muriel Johnson.
Bowen and his wife founded Skyler's Gift, a foundation that helps pay funeral costs and grief counseling for families that have lost infants and can't afford either.
--There was a rare public explosion of temper between a player and a coach on Wednesday. Safety DeAngelo Hall thought he was held by a tight end on a play.
Tight ends' coach Wes Phillips chuckled and loudly praised the play. Hall didn't take kindly to that and when the two men were back on the sideline he let Phillips know in no uncertain terms.
It took Redskins personnel executive Doug Williams to step in and settle down Hall and defuse the situation. The verbal exchange never became physical, but it lingered longer than confortable and coach Jay Gruden eventually chatted with Hall, too.
NOTES: LB James Gayle, who missed all of last season after an offseason training injury, was cut on Wednesday to drop the roster to 89 players. ... S Su'a Cravens again spent Wednesday's practice at second-team linebacker as the Redskins try to get their second-round pick acclimated to that position. Listed as a safety, Cravens is expected to play a jack-of-all-trades role toggling between a hybrid safety-linebacker role. ... SS David Bruton again earned most of the repetitions with the first teamers on Wednesday. A free-agent signing who started three games for Denver last season, Bruton is the early favorite to win the starting strong safety position.
