Chargers WR Vincent Jackson will likely miss this Sunday's game against the Raiders, head coach Norv Turner said Monday.

Jackson, who played Sunday night for the first time this season after a contract dispute, left the game after just a few plays with a calf injury.

Turner said Jackson had an MRI Monday morning. NBC's Andrea Kremer reported that Jackson tweaked his groin during practice from overuse and strained the calf in pregame as a result of overcompensation. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune also reported Jackson's injury was a result of overcompensation.

The way we see it

Jackson was supposed to give the Chargers' offense a big boost down the stretch as they make their annual late push for the playoffs, so this is certainly a setback. Luckily for QB Philip Rivers, TE Antonio Gates returned to the field and is nearing 100 percent, and the Chargers have played without Jackson all season, but would be better with him on the field, especially considering he has looked very good in practice.

Fantasy Spin

This is a blow to fantasy owners who have been patiently awaiting Jackson's return to the field. Chargers WRs Legedu Naanee, Malcom Floyd and Seyi Ajirotutu will be Rivers' top receiving targets along with Gates.
