Steven Jackson Status: Keep An Eye On Practice Today

The St. Louis Rams could certainly use Steven Jackson this week against Washington as they look to stop an alarming skid. Jackson played last week against the Ravens, but in a limited capacity. He did not experience any setbacks last week. Now, the question is whether or not he can get back to a complete role this week. 

Jackson injured his quad against the Eagles in the season opener. He tried to play last Monday against the Giants. This week, his quad prevented him from doing any more than power back-type work. That included the possibility of work at the goal-line, but the Rams never made it that close to the end zone. 

Keep an eye on practice reports today. Jackson's workload today will provide the first clues as to his status for Sunday. 

Washington is allowing an average of 97.7 yards per game so far this season, 11th best in the NFL. In five career games against Washington, Jackson has 415 yards and 2 touchdowns on 93 carries. He has a score to settle this week too. If you're recall last year's game against Washington, Kedric Golston tried to pull Jackson's leg off, leading to a groin injury that dogged him for part of the season.
