Good start for Jackson

Former West Haven High star Rob Jackson left his mark in his NFL debut on Sunday.

The two-time New Haven Register first-team All-State defensive end not only had a sack in the Washington Redskins' 30-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts but the seventh-round pick out of Kansas State received props from John Madden during the broadcast. Madden mentioned the words of praise Jackson received from perennial All-Pro defensive end Jason Taylor during the nationally-televised opener to the NFL preseason. While it is early in the process, it appears that Jackson's transition to the NFL is off to a strong start.
