When the Rams go to San Francisco on Sunday, they’ll have their leading running back. Most likely.
Rookie Zac Stacy has been listed as probable, five days after suffering a concussion against the Bears. It means he has received clearance to play.
But it also means that, if any concussion symptoms return, Stacy will be shut down. It rarely happens — possibly because the player ordinarily has to tell someone he’s having headaches or dizziness or any other symptoms.
Stacy, a fifth-round pick from Vanderbilt, has 624 yards rushing this season, more than 400 more than the second-place guy on the list, undrafted rookie Benny Cunningham. Lost in the shuffle are second-year tailbacks Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead.
A second-round draft choice in 2012, Pead has seven carries for 21 yards on the season.
