Rams RB Steven Jackson has yet to practice this week
This week is shaping up to be a lot like last week for Rams running back Steven Jackson . He didn't practice leading up to the game versus the Bears because of his groin injury, but was able to take on 13 touches. The Rams host the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday, and Jackson still hasn't practiced. However, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jackson expects to play yet again, practice or no practice.
The problem here is Jackson looked far, far away from being healthy last week and spent some game time on the sidelines with a big pack of ice wrapped over the injured muscle. The Seahawks are not an easy assignment for any rushing offense, especially one with a workhorse back who has been unable to practice for almost two weeks. Daryl Richardson is Jackson's backup, but I think you'll be better off ignoring this backfield altogether.
