Steven Jackson is once again a game time decision for the St. Louis Rams today. Jackson did not practice on Friday. He is expected to be evaluated before the Rams host the Ravens at 3:05 p.m. local time.
Jackson has just two plays under his belt on the young season. He strained his quad on a touchdown run versus Philadelphia on the Rams' first offensive snap of the season opener. On the field Monday night, he tried to go through the workouts, but could not complete a 40-yard dash.
Also of some concern, Cadillac Williams was limited in Friday's practice. The Rams' primary backup suffered a hamstring injury Monday night. Earlier in the week, coaches were confident that Williams would play, but Spagnuolo referred to him as a game time decision on Friday.
Injured running backs are troubling news for the Rams. Since the end of last season debate swirled about Jackson's ability to stay healthy as a 28-year old running back with a ton of touches on his resume. An injury on the first play of the season has done nothing to settle that.
