Steven Jackson Very Questionable With A Groin Injury

Steven Jackson is still nursing a groin injury suffered against the Washington Redskins, leaving his status for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks in serious question.

The Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neil passed on the word from Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo.

“We’re going to tread lightly on this one,” Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said on a conference call with Seattle reporters. "It is truly day-to-day. The news was good when the MRI came back and it wasn’t a tear, but he’s sore. You’re talking about a running back with a lower-extremity injury, and so you’re going to be careful with it.

Without Jackson, the Rams will have to rely on rookie quarterback Sam Bradford’s arm, making the St. Louis offense much less formidable. Even if Jackson is ready to go, it’s clear he won’t be at 100 percent. The Seahawks may have dodged a bullet against a Rams team that’s looking much more dangerous than it did before the season.

Seattle takes on St. Louis this Sunday at 10 a.m. on Fox.
