Roger, always eager for violence, is edging past Jack in order to "show him" how to attack SamnEric.  Roger is the symbol of animal brutality, but it is a brutality barely contained by authority.  Jack is the authority.  Roger is shoving Jack, almost but not quite pushing him aside, in a symbolic action to discard human morals and turn fully to animal desire.
