St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is most likely going to sit out tonight, according to the Post Dispatch, for the Rams Monday night game against the New York Giants. Jackson did not practice this week. Over the weekend, head coach Steve Spagnuolo said that Jackson would be evaluated on Monday before the game. 

Cadillac Williams will handle the bulk of the running work, with Jerious Norwood coming in for spot duty. New addition Quinn Porter is expected to see some work as a returner, with Danny Amendola also out. 

The Rams are seven point underdogs to a Giants team dealing with its own lengthy injury list. Defensive end Justin Tuck and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks are both questionable for tonight's game. 

New York allowed Tim Hightower to run for 72 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries last week in a loss to Washington. More than anything, though, the Rams offensive line is closely watching tape of that game in order to allow Sam Bradford the same kind of success that Rex Grossman had, passing for 2 touchdowns and more than 300 yards. Grossman was sacked 4 times.
