Despite all his success in nine seasons in St. Louis, former Rams running back Steven Jackson never rushed for 100 yards in a game against the Seattle Seahawks.
On Monday night, Rams’ fifth-round rookie Zac Stacy did it in his first try.
Stacy rushed for 134 yards on 26 carries against the Seahawks. Stacy led a strong rushing attack for St. Louis against a Seattle defense that is usually very strong against the run. St. Louis rushed for an even 200 yards on the night. Seattle had allowed just one 100-yard rusher this season prior to Monday night when Arian Foster ran for 102 yards for the Houston Texans in Week 4.
However, Stacy suffered an ankle injury late in the game that limited him on the team’s final possession. According to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, head coach Jeff Fisher said Stacy was injured on the Rams’ second-to-last drive of the game, which led to Daryl Richardson getting the call for most of the final possession.
Stacy was taken for X-rays after the game, per Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com.
Stacy has been a nice fit for the Rams’ rushing attack since earning more time a few weeks ago. In four games since taking over, Stacy has carried 75 times for 344 yards and a touchdown.
