Tony Softli, a former personnel executive for the Rams, said on the latest Cover Two Podcast that RB Steven Jackson‘s quadriceps injury will keep him from playing in Monday night’s game against the Giants, according to a team source.
“Steven Jackson is week to week,” Softli said. “He will not play this week against the Giants on Monday night, which is a big loss for them.”
A team source said Jackson’s status doesn’t look optimistic, but it’s too soon to tell if he’ll be able to suit up against New York. If Jackson can’t play, Cadillac Williams would start. Williams filled in admirably Sunday after Jackson got hurt, rushing for 91 yards on 19 carries and adding 49 yards on five receptions.
Cover Two also debated on who would end the season with better numbers between QBs Philip Rivers or Tom Brady; all the reasons why Aaron Rodgers will be in their company by the end of the season — and why Cam Newton hasn’t completely arrived.
