The Rams really need Steven Jackson to be ready

S. Jackson is expected to be cleared in time for training camp (Getty). Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said Tuesday he expects RB Steven Jackson to be ready to begin training camp Thursday. But Jackson, who underwent surgery in April to repair a herniated disc in his back, still will have to be cleared by a team doctor before he can take the field for the first time since last year.

“He feels great," Spagnuolo told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch . "Probably only because it's a back (injury), we'll tread lightly. But I think he'll do most everything."

The Rams probably will take it easy with Jackson in regards to preseason games – not that Jackson plays much in exhibition contests, anyway – but Spagnuolo expects Jackson to be ready to go for the start of the regular season.

Without Jackson, the Rams offense could struggle to produce. Assuming Sam Bradford wins the quarterback job, he’ll be a rookie starting in his first season in the NFL. That likely won’t be a pretty picture. Kenneth Darby and Chris Ogbonnaya, the backups to Jackson at RB, have very little experience, and the receiving corps is not exactly filled with big names.

"We want to get (Jackson) ready,” Spagnuolo said. “He wants to go, and he wants to be ready. And we'll have him ready for the opening game.”
