Look for D-Jax and Maclin to return punts Friday

Special teams coach Bobby April had no trouble pinpointing the strength of special teamss - kicker David Akers and punter Sav Rocca.
Ironically they're the two oldest players on a team that averages 24 years old.
"Those two areas have been good," April said.
The others need work,
But the return game could be ramped up this Friday against the Kansas City Chiefs as April said there's "a possibility: the Eagles could use DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin on punt returns.
Ellis Hobbs and Quintin Demps will return kickoffs. Chad Hall should be looking over his shoulder as after returning kicks in the first two games he's only "a possibility" to do it against the Chiefs.
Rookie cornerback Trevard Lindley, by the way, has been one of the Eagles top special teams coverage guys, with rookie wide receiver Riley Cooper a close second according to April.
