Steven Jackson (groin, questionable) was not on the field Sunday for the start of Rams pre-game warmups. "It's still early," cautions Mike Sando of ESPN, but it's notable for a player whose status is in so much doubt. Jackson wasn't able to do anything aside from take hand-offs as late in the week as Friday. He'll have made an unbelievably quick recovery if he's able to function in Sunday's game.
"According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Rams RB Steven Jackson will be active, but the team is unsure how much he'll be able to play. Jackson was seen jogging in warmups, and may be limited when he does find the field. He'll be an extremely risky fantasy play. Stay away from Kenneth Darby."
This just makes my decision worse....he will play.....but who knows if he gets more than 10 carries. shit
Rams RB Steven Jackson practiced in full on Friday after seeing limited action Wednesday and Thursday. He's been dealing with a groin injury which he hurt in St. Louis' Week 3 win over the Redskins. (Updated 10/08/2010)
Jackson needs 254 yards to tie and 255 yards to break Eric Dickerson's team record for rushing yards. The durable Jackson played through his groin problem in Week 4, going for 124 yards against the Seahawks. He faces a Lions defense that ranks 25th against the run this year, so S-Jax could be primed for another big game. If he gets the green light for Sunday, he should be active in all Fantasy lineups.
