Steven Jackson was injured
Just a quick update from the Rams' locker room... when I asked coach Jeff Fisher about why Jackson didn't play after spiking the ball and drawing a 15-yard penalty. Fisher said Jackson had a groin strain, and that it wouldn't have been right to put him back in. With Jackson out, the Rams turned to rookie RB rushed 15 times for 83 yards including a 53-yard breakaway. And, of course, the late fumble that could have led to an unhappy outcome for the Rams. Here's what I don't understand: when a player comes out of a game because of an injury, the news is announced in the press box. That's the custom. Well, this time, that custom was broken. The Rams never disclosed the reason for SJ's removal. No announcement was made. That prompted a lot of speculation. Seems to me, the Rams could have avoided that by simply disclosing the injury.
