    Steven Jackson has arthroscopic surgery on his right knee

    S. Jackson has arthroscopic surgery on his right knee

    Rams running back Steven Jackson had arthroscopic knee surgery on his right
    knee Thursday. According to team medical officials, Jackson had meniscus
    cartilage repaired on the outside of the knee. The procedure took only about 20
    minutes.
    The rehabilitation time for such an injury is four to six weeks, so Jackson
    should be recovered in time for the team's spring minicamps and organized team
    activities (OTAs) in May.
    Jackson's right knee is the one that bothered him late in the 2004 season. He
    couldn't finish games Dec. 5 against San Francisco and Dec. 27 against
    Philadelphia after banging the knee against the artificial surface at the
    Edward Jones Dome. Jackson also suffered a slightly torn posterior cruciate
    ligament in the knee during that time, but it was a nonsurgical injury that has
    healed.
    Meanwhile, wide receiver-punt returner Shaun McDonald had his left knee scoped
    Monday, to repair a slightly torn cartilage. "He hurt it the first game of the
    year," McDonald's agent, Reggie Smith, said.
    McDonald was walking without crutches by Wednesday. He begins his rehab work on
    Monday, and should be full speed long before the start of minicamps.
    In other injury news, further examination has determined that safety Adam
    Archuleta has two degenerative discs in his back.
    "They don't feel like they need to do surgery," coach Mike Martz said. "But
    they need to rehab it pretty good. So we'll have him on a physical therapy
    (regimen)."
    Other Rams who have had surgery, or have surgery scheduled soon, include
    linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa (shoulder); offensive tackle Grant Williams (elbow,
    shoulder); and offensive guard Tom Nutten (toe).
    Offensive guard Adam Timmerman needs surgery on both shoulders and also has a
    fractured foot, but the foot injury may not require surgery. Timmerman also
    suffered torn knee cartilage in the season, but apparently the condition has
    healed without surgery.
    Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy will have a CAT scan to determine if additional
    surgery is necessary on the foot he fractured during training camp. The bone
    hasn't healed completely.
    Kennedy experienced considerable soreness in the foot during the Rams' playoff
    games against Seattle and Atlanta, limiting his playing time. It is not
    uncommon for such injuries to require two surgeries.
    The team has signed street free agent Rod Perry, a wide receiver who played his
    college ball at Penn State, to a one-year contract.

    With our history of Runningbacks with knee problems, maybe we should think about replacing that turf.
