Steven Jackson's Status In Question With Another Missed Practice

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson missed practice again Thursday. Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch had the news on Twitter:

After Jackson injured his groin Sunday against the Redskins, a MRI came back negative. He will continue to be listed as day-to-day, as he has been all week, it seems.

If Jackson can't go this Sunday against Chicago, Daryl Richardson will likely get most of his carries. Richardson, 22, ran 15 times for 83 yards and caught two balls for 19 yards against Washington. The rookie was a seventh-round selection of the Rams in the 2012 draft out of Abilene Christian. Below Richardson on the Rams' depth chart is Isaiah Pead, who has not played on any snaps from scrimmage.

Steven Jackson's Injury Has Him Day-To-Day

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson was listed as day-to-day on the Rams latest injury report. Jackson injured his groin last week in the Rams' win over the Washington Redskins, and he missed practice on Wednesday while nursing the injury.

Jackson has had nagging injuries for most of his career, so this is nothing new. Jackson wasn't declared as out for the Rams' upcoming game against the Chicago Bears, and the MRI on his groin came back negative.

Behind Jackson on the depth chart are Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead. Richardson ran for 83 yards on 15 carries and totaled 19 yards on two receptions against the Redskins, so he would likely be the one to step in as the primary running back if Jackson misses any time. Pead has yet to see any time outside of special teams.

Steven Jackson Injury: MRI Reveals Rams RB Is Fine

St. Louis Rams star running back Steven Jackson will reportedly be all right following an MRI on his groin. Jackson had been pulled from the game during the second half of St. Louis' win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday after being hit with an unsportsman like conduct penalty. It was later learned he had suffered a groin injury.

Jackson revealed on Monday that the results were positive -- positive for him, anyway -- on his MRI:

It's still not known whether or not Jackson will be at 100 percent health and ready to start when the Rams take on the Chicago Bears in Week 3 action.

Steven Jackson Injury: Rams RB Hurts Hamstring

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson missed the second half of his team's 31-28 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, and it was believed to be due to a simple benching. Apparently, that wasn't the whole story. As it turns out, Jackson was dealing with some sort of hamstring injury.

Jackson was benched after drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty late in the first half. On a 3rd-and-1 play, he was tackled just shy of the end zone. After being called short of the goal line, Jackson spiked the football in frustration, drawing the foul. The Rams were backed up 15 yards and had to settle for a 33-yard field goal. Jackson missed the rest of the game.

At the time, the thought was that Jackson had been benched for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. And while that may have played a role in head coach Jeff Fisher's decision, it looks like it wasn't the only factor.
