Rams RB Steven Jackson will not play this weekend. Hell, according to the PD he won't even make the trip to San Fran.
Making the news that much worse is the fact that his leg injury isn't healing well and the three-time thousand yard rusher will see a specialist.
Big opportunity for RB Antonio Pittman to grab the starting mantle in Jackson's absence. Haslett challenged his backup runner to just that, from Steve Korte:
He needs to capitalize on (his opportunities). He can’t have 13 rushing attempts for 20 yards. He needs to break through and get a 100-yard game and show that he is a back that can play in this game for a long time. I’ve already told him that he needs to run his butt off this week and prove that he deserves this opportunity.
