Why did the ump walk halfway to Jackson to throw a ball?

The ball had just struck him very close to a "sensitive area" so he needed a little time to gather himself and walk it off. Also, umpires will do that at times as a courtesy to the catcher if the catcher gets nailed by a foul tip. Catchers will also do the same for umpires.
