Earlier in the week in camp Ram, there was slight a tiff between Coach Jim Haslett and his star running back, Steven Jackson. It was evident the tension stemmed from a preseason holdout by Jackson, and Jackson was seemingly growing tired of hearing insinuations that his holdout meant he wasn't conditioned as well as he should have been for this season.
Now, a few days later, the Rams' two biggest names seem to have put this behind them and they are ready to focus on steering this stellar 2-10 ship to a successful conclusion.
"We're fine," Haslett said Thursday. "There's no issues at all, nothing at all. He's a good guy, works hard, and we're just glad to have him back and ready to go."
"Me and Coach Haslett, we're good. We've been able to kind of look back at that (sound bite) and just laugh about it. Everything's fine. ... He explained it to me like he explained it to you guys. He was more talking about the quad muscle fatiguing and not so much my lung capacity."
