St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson was held out of practice on Wednesday and his status for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears is uncertain. Rams coach Jeff Fisher has said that Jackson is day-to-day and was listed on the injury report with a groin injury.
This news ends the idea that Jackson was benched in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Washington Redskins rather than held out due to an injury as some had theorized. Jackson has a history of injuries, having missed four games with a groin injury in 2007, four games with a quad injury in 2008, and three games with a quad injury last season. It is believed that his current injury is not as serious as any of those.
Jackson has 111 yards on 30 carries through two games this season. If he is unable to go, Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead, and Terrance Ganaway will fill the void at RB for the Rams.
