Eagles special teams coach Dave Fipp says that DeSean Jackson asked him for a shot at the final punt return, telling him, “I want to go back there and make a play.”

And it was on that play that Jackson suffered a fractured ankle that may keep him out for the season.

“Just a really unselfish football player trying to do anything he could to help the organization win a football game. He knew it was a spot where really the team needed him. He wanted a chance to step up and make a play for the team,” Fipp said. “So, obviously, he jumped back in there to take that kick, and, obviously, it’s unfortunate what happened.

“We all know that injuries are part of the game. But you never like seeing them, not to any player, but certainly not to great players like him. Especially guys who work so hard to get back into the thing. So, obviously, that’s tough to watch or see. In terms of the hit and all that, I think some people are talking about that. Obviously, I’m going to stay away from that myself, personally, but, yeah, disappointed in the injury there for sure.”
