    RB Steven Jackson Not Getting Much Preseason Work

    RB Steven Jackson not getting much preseason work
    By Jim Thomas
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson hasn’t been worn down in exhibiton play _ he has only five carries in two preseason games. But he is growing weary of questions about his preseason workload.

    “I feel like this question keeps coming up,” Jackson told reporters after Tuesday’s practice. “I will leave that up to Coach (Steve Spagnuolo). Like I said before, I am ready and I will take however many reps they feel I need.”

    Jackson had two carries for 15 yards Aug. 14 against the New York Jets; he had three carries for 10 yards last Friday against Atlanta. He has yet to have a pass thrown his way in preseason play.

    According to Spagnuolo, Jackson can look for more of the same in terms of a workload Thursday night in Cincinnati.

    “Very similar, maybe a little bit more,” Spagnuolo said.

    For his part, Jackson says he’d just as soon hit the fast-foward button _ all the way to the Sept. 13 season opener in Seattle.

    “I am ready,” he said. “It feels like we’ve been practicing forever. It goes back to March.”


    _ The Rams had a walk-through practice Wednesday morning in Earth City and were scheduled to leave for Cincinnati early in the afternoon.

    _ The annual Rams “Rookie Show,” in which draft picks and rookie free agents make fun of coaches, players and just about anything else, took place Tuesday.

    _ WR Brooks Foster, coming off ankle surgery last Friday, won’t accompany the team to Cincinnati.

    _ RB Kenneth Darby, experiencing swelling in his sprained knee, was held out of Tuesday’s practice and looks doubtful for Cincy.

    _ Still not cleared to play after suffering a concussion against the Jets, left guard Jacob Bell took another baseline test Tuesday. Bell must pass the test before he’s cleared to play again.

    can you see a hugh Clan debate on the horizon,if SJ plays more tommorrow night and something happens to him the guys will blow a gasket (me included)if he doesn't play much and starts out very slowly when the season begins then guys will rip into him because he didn't play enough in preseason,looks like the making of a good debate.

    I can't blame Spags. S.J. is the motor we can't afford to have that guy go down.

    Very true eldfan... but the problem is that he is the motor, so we need to get him started at the same time as we worry about getting him hurt. If he starts slowly, the whole team will start slowly. That's why I'm hoping that he plays at least 3 full drives tonight. Come on, it;s only the Bengals! He can say "welcome to the NFL" as he runs over Maualuga!
