Jackson sees increased role

Rob Jackson was a part-time player even when outside linebacker Brian Orakpo was first lost for the season with a torn left pectoral muscle. It was expected that Jackson would split time with Chris Wilson.

That was the case for a while, but now Jackson is emerging as an every-down player. He played 52 snaps Sunday, or a season-high 87 percent of the defensive action.

“I saw it online that I played 52 snaps. But I didn’t notice that I played that many snaps. I didn’t feel fatigue or like it was anything different,” Jackson said.
