That picture, the one you're uncomfortably starting at above, is none other than St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson. It's ok to be impressed. The guy takes impeccable care to stay in shape, as you may have noticed in the short film series he did, "Week In The Life" or his workout contest.
That photo is from EPSN's "bodies" issue of their magazine, which features muscle porn for every taste.
Jackson was the talk of Rams Nation yesterday after taking over for a few minutes in yesterday's practice at Rams Park. Whatever he said to fire up the offense it fired up the tempo at practice. Suffering through the start of this season hasn't been easy for fans. People are looking for answers. Jackson looks like he delivered exactly what the team needed yesterday.
Last week, the Rams leaned on Jackson in the running game, his first appearance at full strength since suffering a quad injury in week one. He'll be needed when play resumes in week six against Green Bay, both for his ability and his leadership.
