UPDATE: It’s looking more and more like Jackson is done for the day. He’s currently on the sidelines with his helmet off, and according to Steve Wyche, has stopped trying to warm up. No official word from the Rams yet.
It’s not a pleasant sight for the Rams that RB Steven Jackson is on the sideline during the first quarter riding a stationary bike.
The Rams announced during the first quarter that Jackson is questionable to return against the Eagles with a right quadriceps bruise. Jackson started off the game with this 47-yard touchdown run, but then headed for the locker room. He returned to start the second series with a 9-yard run, but then came out for what appears to be for good.
The positive is that the Rams now have a capable backup for Jackson in Cadillac Williams, who looked strong while replacing Jackson. Williams has six rushes for 33 yards.
