Rams RB Steven Jackson – who strained his groin during Sunday’s win vs. Washington – didn’t practice today, and he told ESPN 101 radio (via sportsradiointerviews.com) in St. Louis this morning that he’s day to day.
“I just got split like a wishbone,” he told the radio station. “That’s pretty much the only way you could describe it. … Soft tissue injuries are day-to-day and week-to-week. Anytime around the league you see a guy having a soft tissue thing, it’s really based on that guy and how fast he recovers. The first step today, and probably will be the rest of the week, is to get the swelling out of there. That’s why you do a lot of icing still, and I’ve got to keep my leg elevated when I’m not doing something.”
Jackson doesn’t know if he’ll play this Sunday vs. Seattle, but he also said that if the game had playoff implications, he’d be on the field and give it his best shot. Let’s face it, that won’t be a problem, because St. Louis won’t play any games with playoff implications any time in the near future.
If Jackson – who rushed 10 times for 58 yards before leaving last week’s game – can’t play, expect Kenneth Darby and Keith Toston (who’s playing with a shoulder injury) to share his carries.
Other notable NFL players not practicing:
- Andre Johnson – As Rapid Reporter Matt Rybaltowski writes, the Houston WR's ankle is improving. That’s from the mouth of coach Gary Kubiak: “He didn’t do anything (today), but he didn’t do anything last Wednesday either.”
- Knowshon Moreno – It doesn’t appear likely the Broncos RB and his bum hamstring will play this weekend against Tennessee, writes the Denver Post. That means Denver will continue to use new acquisition Laurence Maroney.
