St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson practiced again today. He is officially designated as probable for the game against the Washington Redskins this Sunday. That should come as excellent news for the Rams, still looking for their first win of the season.

As we've mentioned several times, Jackson should be the spark plug the Rams offense needs to ignite this week. Jackson had a big game last year against Washington, even though he left before the half with a groin injury after Kedric Golston tried to yank his leg off in the pile. His legs could also be the key to better pass protection for Sam Bradford

Newly added cornerback Rod Hood is not expected to play this week. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo expressed concerns that Hood was still behind the learning curve with the Rams' defense after being signed on Tuesday. 

That's a tough one. After two or three days, and he was not of these guys who was in a training camp or played in a preseason game. So that'd be a tough one.

That is a tough one, because the Rex Grossman has been good enough this season to threaten a weak Rams secondary.
