Steven Jackson Injury: Will Rams RB Play Vs. Bears?

There is speculation that Steven Jackson will not play when the St. Louis Rams take on the Chicago Bears Sunday afternoon.

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is officially listed as a game-time decision for this week's game against the Chicago Bears. Jackson missed practice all week because of a groin injury sustained last week against the Washington Redskins. Now, there are signs that he might not play this week.

Hmm. It's hard to know. Head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear this week that Jackson was under no sort of practice-to-play rules, the running back being a veteran and knowledgeable of the offensive system. An MRI early in the week came back all clear for Jackson.

Dales is referring to the Rams' Week 4 game at home against the Seahawks followed in Week 5 by a Thursday night game against the Cardinals.

I initially thought that this was maybe just psychological gamesmanship, and maybe it still is. The coaches are more than confident in Daryl Richardson to carry the workload, along with a rotation of Isaiah Pead and bowling ball Terrance Ganaway.
