Rams | Jackson must practice Friday to play in Week 10

Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson (thigh) needs to practice Friday, Nov. 7, in order to play in Week 10, according to head coach Jim Haslett. When Jackson was asked if it was realistic for him to practice this week, he said, "A full practice, probably not, to be honest with you. I am surely hoping that I come in tomorrow and something miraculous happens, and I can come in and give a full practice because that is what (Haslett) wants. I have had a discussion with him but I was unable to do it today." Jackson added, "It is getting better, but with a hamstring, a quad or groin, those kinds of injuries, one day you feel great and the next day the slightest tweak could really set you back. That is what I am dealing with right now. One day I feel great, I feel like I can go and when it is time for me to show and prove that I am ready, it is just not responding the way we want it to."
