St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson missed practice again today; news that is sure to make fans and fantasy GMs nervous. His status is still being described as day to day. Ditto for SS Oshiomogho Atogwe

Other injuries of note are those that kept WR Laurent Robinson and S Darian Stewart out of practice today. Both could practice tomorrow, so stay tuned. DT Clifton Ryan will be out again this week, but that has less of an impact (as long as everyone else stays healthy) since the Rams use DEs at the tackle spots often. James Hall has had a great deal of success on the inside this season matched up against weaker guards. 

Back to the running back situation.

Keith Toston is dealing with a shoulder injury and the newest member of the Rams, RB Chauncey Washingtongot some reps with the first team. That's something to keep an eye on this Sunday. Seattle's stout run defense was the subject of an earlier post today. Seattle hasn't allowed opposing rushers to do much, but they did allow to short yardage touchdowns against the Broncos in their week 2 loss.

Washington's game is power, and I doubt you have to be incredibly well versed with the playbook to understand how to hit a hole in the middle and get the ball across the goal line or even the first down marker. Toston rushed for negative yards on back to back goal line carries last week one a possession that ended with a blocked field goal. I hope that the Rams are looking for solutions in those red zone situations. 

Rams coaches are certainly playing the matchups with the roster lately, including using John Greco at RG. David Vobora will rotate with Larry Grant on the weakside this week, which should help with outside runs that have been the weak spot in the Rams run defense
