    Jackson Sits Out Rams Practice

    Jackson sits out Rams practice

    3 hours ago BY KATHLEEN NELSON

    Running back Steven Jackson missed practice Wednesday, the first day of preparation for the Rams' game Sunday in Chicago. Coach Jeff Fisher said Jackson was "day-to-day" because of a groin strain.

    Jackson suffered the injury on a 20-yard run a few plays before crossing the plane of the goal line on what appeared to be a touchdown. He then spiked the ball, a legal move after a TD, but was assessed an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, since the officials did not signal a touchdown. Jackson did not return to the game.

    If Jackson is unable to play Sunday, Terrance Ganaway might get some playing time. Though he joined the Rams just September 1, he is larger at 6-1 and 240 than the Rams' two draft choices this year, Isaiah Pead and Daryl Richardson, who back up Jackson.

    Also unable to practice Wednesday was tackle Wayne Hunter, who had replaced Rodger Saffold at left tackle. Saffold left Sunday's victory over Washington with a sprained MCL. Hunter left briefly with an ankle injury but returned Sunday. If Hunter is unable to play, the Rams could rely on Ty Nsekhe against the Bears.

    Other players who remained on the sideline were S Matthew Daniels (hamstring), FB Brit Miller (thigh) and DT Michael Brockers (ankle).

    DT Matt Conrath, returned to the field and did work on the sidelines. Conrath missed the first two games of the regular season because of a knee injury.

    So much for the benching theories. I really hope Jackson will be ready for Sunday, but if not, it feels great to know Richardson is there to pick up the slack.

    Fisher has stated that Jackson could have reentered the Redskins game had Richardson struggled, so I wouldn't be surprised if he rested this week but played in the game.

    Boo. I was wondering if he got benched for his attitude and spiking the ball. I hate to hear that he is sitting out. I picked him up on my fantasy team and I have been worried that he would not put up points for me. To the bench you go Steven.

    True, but he did not play for half of the last game and he has no TDs for the season.

    But we're talking about practice. Not the game that Steven Jackson goes out there and dies for and plays every game last it's his last, but we're talking about practice man. How silly is that?

    Now I know that Jackson is supposed to lead by example and all that but he's not shoving that aside like it don't mean anything. He knows it's important, he honestly does, but we're talking about practice. We're talking about practice man. We're talking about practice. We're talking about practice. We're not talking about the game. We're talking about practice. When you come to the dome, and you see Jackson play, you've seen him play right, you've seen him give everything he's got, but we're talking about practice right now.

    Man he is really felling Fisher's wrath...but not letting him practice is really sending a message that the Rams need.

    The most amazing part about this post is the reason given for editing.

    I'm actually kind of hoping that that start with outside runs against the Bears.

    I think we'll be using speed and exploiting the cover who? zones to be successful on offense, and I'd love to see a rested and ready SJ powering it up the middle on those short yardage plays.

    This is going to be a tough game.

    Sarcasm ENGAGE:

    Wow, the Rams are working really hard to cover up SJax's disciplinary benching in last Sunday's game.

    Sarcasm OFF.

    Yep, it's just practice, and probably just a precaution, but there is no denying the fact that when Jackson has these types of soft tissue injuries, they don't heal quickly, and they linger.

    Maybe it's a genuine precautionary measure but I think it's just as likely to be disinformation/bluff. Fisher is known for his cageyness regarding injury reports & if there's any Ram he might be able to rely on showing up on Sunday with minimal practice, it has to be SJ. Make the Bears plan for D-Rich & counter-punch with either SJ or...dare I say it ?...Pead.

    Not sayin' I don't believe the injury occurred but it seems unlikely that it was serious since there was no extensive attention from Reggie Scott, no trying to loosen it up on the bike, etc.

    Guess we're going to find out.
