Even though nearly every Rams fan can't wait to remind you that Steven Jackson is "selfish," because they are still bitter he held out in the preseason, no one can deny that this sputtering offense most definitely needs him on the field. The one time this season they actually looked like a functioning offense he was busy puncturing the Cowboys defense for 160 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

Since the snafu of Jackson trying to make it back too quickly a few weeks ago, Head Coach Jim Haslett has taken the approach that Jackson won't be playing on Sunday if he isn't able to practice full-go during the week.
Wednesday Jackson was able to practice, but he wasn't full speed.
"He worked better today. We'll work him tomorrow and then hopefully make a decision," coach Jim Haslett said. "I know it's a lot better, but is it good enough? I don't know yet."
Thus, neither do we. Look for some news on this situation tomorrow, because it appears the big test will come Thursday in practice.
