Random Ramsdom, 9/28: Jackson back soon?

New, comments

Links to digest...

St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson has a strained groin, which is not as bad as it could have been. Jackson will be watched closely, and there's still no idea about whether or not he'll return to action. It could be one of those situations like last season where he doesn't practice during the week to save some wear and tear for game time. 

The other Rams injury to keep an eye on is Oshiomogho Atogwe. The Rams FS has an injured thigh which was further aggravated on the crack back block. He's also being watched this week to determine his status for week 4. It sounds like it might be one of those situations where he can play but at something less than 100 percent. Atogwe and the secondary have been a real bright spot for the Rams this season, so keep an eye on this one.

Lots more linkage after the jump...

Special teams has been the hardest hit unit for the team so far this season. First, it was LB Chris Chamberlain and a heapin' helpin' of tight ends. Now, WR and ST ace Dominique Curry is out for the season. 

SS Craig Dahl is on track to return, and WR Laurent Robinson could be back as well. 

As great as it felt for the Rams to get a win, it was just one win. Spagnuolo wants the team to build on it, move on and start getting ready for this week's game against Seattle. Here's the coach:

I want our guys to enjoy the win. But that's it, it's over and done. We've got another game to play. You can't get stuck on that one, just like we couldn't get stuck on any of the losses, feeling sorry for ourselves.

The Rams re-signed CB Kevin Dockery after releasing him to make room for DT Jermelle Cudjo last week. Seventh-round rookie Marquis Johnson will likely go back to the practice squad after being released to make room for Dock. Johnson has talent but still raw. He'll benefit more on the practice squad. 

Not long after they were supposedly out of the mix, reports suggest that Larry Johnson remains a possibility for the Rams.
