Steven Jackson Injury: Quad Strain Has RB On Unknown Timetable

The St. Louis Rams received a first quarter 47-yard touchdown run from running back Steven Jackson, but little else as a quad strain prevented him from playing in the rest of the game. The Rams are staying quiet on Jackson's status until Monday, when they plan to evaluate the extent of his injury, according to the team's official Twitter feed.

In his absence, Cadillac Williams, a free agent signing, took over running back duties and filled in nicely. He finished the game with 81 yards on 19 carries. The team's other free agent running back signing, Jerious Norwood, received just three carries and gained 10 yards.

The Cowboys also lost wide receiver Danny Amendola to a dislocated shoulder on Sunday. And young quarterback Sam Bradford reportedly has nerve damage in his fingers.
