St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson said his groin injury wasn't any worse after Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bears. We break down the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson said (via The St. Louis Post-Dispatch) after Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bears that he didn't suffer any setbacks in terms of his groin injury. Jackson tested the groin about two hours before kickoff and was cleared to play. He finished the game with 29 yards on 11 carries. The Rams face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson's availability didn't add much to the running game for the Rams, who managed just 59 yards total on 17 carries as a team. Jackson had missed practice all week so not much was expected on Sunday, but it's good to hear that he didn't hurt himself even more by playing. Fantasy owners should monitor practice reports as the week goes along before committing to Jackson on Sunday.
