Rodger Saffold Injury Status Still A Mystery For Rams Vs. Redskins

You're probably not as nervous about this as Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson, but I'm happy to rank the St. Louis Rams' fandom's concern over Rodger Saffold's injury status just behind the actual Rams' heading into Sunday's Week 2 contest vs. the Washington Redskins. With Jason Smith gone, the last member of the Rams' impressive young 2010 offensive linemen looked set to miss a significant chunk of season after this deeply unpleasant neck injury left him motionless on the Ford Field turf.

Then a weird thing happened: He got back to practice. After being limited on Wednesday he's participated fully since Thursday, and was listed as questionable in the Rams' official injury report. But Saffold and the Rams are being cagey about whether he'll play on gameday--neither has yet said anything either for or against it.

We'll keep an eye on this right up to gametime, because a healthy Saffold could be the Rams' primary difference-maker as they look to keep Sam Bradford on the right track and get Steven Jackson there after a 21-carry 53-yard performance in Week 1.

For more injury updates on Saffold and scores, highlights, and fantasy news on everybody else, stay tuned to SB Nation St. Louis's up-to-the-minute Week 2 Rams vs. Redskins storystream.
