Last week, Rams running back Steven Jackson missed every practice with a groin injury. He played against the Bears, but he gained only 29 yards.
This week, Jackson has yet to practice.
Chances are he’ll play on Sunday, when the Seahawks come to town. And the Rams will need him to gain more than 29 yards if they want to knock off the Seahawks.
The loser falls to the basement of the NFC West.
Also not practicing this week have been defensive tackle Matt Conrath (knee), safety Matt Daniels (hamstring), and tackle Rodger Saffold (knee). Defensive end Eugene Sims (illness) fully participated on Thursday after missing practice on Wednesday.
Tackle Wayne Hunter (knee) and defensive tackle Michael Brockers (ankle) participated both days on a limited basis. For Brockers, a first-round pick who has not yet played in a regular-season game, he could be on track to finally suit up.
