Alshon Jeffrey, who dropped a pass that led to a game-sealing interception for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, played in the game with broken ribs, according to a teammate.

Lane Johnson told reporters about the severity of Jeffrey's injury. He was on the injury report and an MRI during the week revealed the injury.

Jeffrey had five receptions for 63 yards for the Philadelphia Eagles.

He took the blame for the 20-14 loss afterward.
