Jacked[2]

verb; other word formation type (novel creation); derivation (Affixation)
Injured
 
The word was used in a similar way to the verbs “injured” or “hurt”. I’m not sure how “jack” came to mean injure or harm since the only similar word I can think of is the slang word “jack” meaning to steal but that doesn’t seem to fit in this context so perhaps this is just a novel creation. The word may be slang that I haven’t heard before possibly from some other region of the United States. Although I don’t know where “jack” originated, I do know that the word uses the suffix -ed to mark a verb as being in past tense.
Etymology : “Jack” plus -ed, past tense suffix.
