    Jackson, 3 other Rams miss practice with illness
    By Jim Thomas
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    Running back Steven Jackson, wide receiver Brandon Gibson, defensive tackle Darell Scott and quarterback Kyle Boller, all missed practice Friday because of flu-like symptoms. But St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said he wasn’t sure if those players had come down with swine flu.

    Defensive end Leonard Little had an infection in his knee that needed to be treated, and also missed Friday’s workout at Rams Park.

      That's what I thought last year. And then... it only got worse.

        i think as soon as the extent of the cap hell the previous regime left us in became common knowledge..it was pretty clear that this season was gonna be a season to soon..if two things go right for us this off-season...

        1. we draft 1st overall and select Suh
        2. there is a salary cap in place and we get to be the third best placed team in that category.

        both would go a long way to getting us off the bottom.

        when you consider what lil nuggets here and there have been brought in by Billy D with such little salary cap space to play with..im pretty damn excited to see what he can do with $35 mill..should get atleast 4 or 5 good players for that..and then theres the draft to come.

              On the bright side, maybe the flu will give Jackson a chance to let his herniated disc heal a bit!

                Oh god, I was hoping Jackson could avoid it, but no. We get the worst of luck.

                  I am not surprised that this is happening. It just takes one of them to bring it into the team and they are exposed to plenty of germs with all the traveling that they do.

                  Other teams must have the same problems.

                      Hopefully its not the swine flu. If jaxx goes down we will have no source of offense what so ever. Our O is bad enough already even with Jaxx...... God have mercy

                        St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, the No. 2 rusher in the NFL, sat out practice Wednesday because he was suffering spasms in his lower back. Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Jackson would be evaluated daily.

                        “It’s day to day,” Jackson said. “Anyone that’s had any back problems knows that it’s just one of those things where you’ve got to wait it out. There’s really nothing you can do. I’ve spent countless hours (at Rams Park) since Sunday, trying to get it back together. Hopefully it’ll release a little bit and allow me to practice.”

                        Jackson, who had a similar problem a couple of years ago, said he’s “expecting to play Sunday” when the Seahawks visit the Edward Jones Dome.

                        Also skipping practice were fullback Mike Karney (neck), tackle Jason Smith (concussion), punter Donnie Jones (illness) and, of course, quarterback Marc Bulger (leg), who will be sidelined three to six weeks. Guard Richie Incognito (foot), who has missed three games, did some individual work.

                        Jackson misses another practice

                        Story Discussion BY JIM THOMAS | Posted: Thursday, September 30, 2010 10:00 am |

                        Rams running back Steven Jackson missed practice again Wednesday and his status is uncertain for Sunday.

                        St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, who injured a groin muscle Sunday vs. Washington, sat out of practice Thursday for a second consecutive day.

                        Jackson's status for Sunday's game vs. Seattle remains uncertain and Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo has said Jackson is "day to day."

                        If Jackson were unable to play, backup RB Kenneth Darby likely would get the bulk of the work Sunday.

                        With no guarantee that either Jackson or RB Keith Toston (shoulder) will be able to play Sunday, the Rams on Tuesday signed running back Chauncey Washington off the New York Jets' practice squad.

                        Washington, 5-11, 215 pounds, was a seventh-round draft pick by Jacksonville in 2008. He has played in only eight NFL games -- six for Jacksonville in 2008 and two for Dallas last season. He has only four carries for 9 yards, plus one reception in his NFL career.

                        Running back Steven Jackson is on the sideline as the St. Louis Rams practice for the first time since Sunday's season-opening loss to the Cardinals.

                        Jackson had some inflammation in his knee after the game. An MRI exam showed no damage.

                        Also out today are wide Laurent Robinson (ankle), cornerbacks Justin King (hamstring) and Kevin Dockey (hamstring), linebacker Chris Chamberlain (toe) and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (ankle).

                        Robinson also had an MRI, which came back clean. Chamberlain and Hoomanawanui are expected to be sidelined for several weeks.

                        Running back Steven Jackson, who by order of coach Jim Haslett must complete a full practice before he’ll be allowed to play in a game, is on the practice field today at Rams Park. Jackson and Antonio Pittman are sharing reps with the first-team offense during 11-on-11 “team” drills.

                        Jackson’s strained thigh muscle has kept him out of two games and rendered him ineffective in another.

                        Elsewhere on the injury front:

                        *Running back Travis Minor is full-go.

                        *Wide receiver/returner Derek Stanley (ankle) is practicing but is hobbling a bit.

                        *Cornerback Tye Hill (knee) is running on the side.

                        *Defensive end Eric Moore (neck) is doing individual drills.

                        All for now . . . more later.

                        Steven Jackson’s quest to get back into the lineup for Sunday’s game at San Francisco has hit a snag. After taking about half the reps in practice Wednesday, Jackson was in sweats and watching from the sideline when practice began Thursday at Rams Park. After a few minutes Jackson went inside, presumably to get treatment on his ailing thigh muscle.

                        Apparently the injury didn’t respond well after Wednesday’s workout. We’ll talk with Jackson after practice.
