Steven Jackson Injury: St. Louis Rams' Running Back Misses Second Straight Practice

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson missed his second straight practice on Thursday after he suffered a groin injury during the team's 31-28 win against the Redskins on Sunday. Despite the injury, Jackson remains hopeful that he'll be ready to play in the Rams' Week 3 matchup with the Chicago Bears, according to a report from the team.

There was speculation earlier this week that the oft-injured Jackson might have been benched rather than injured last Sunday. The ninth-year veteran back was pulled from the game in the first half after an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Head coach Jeff Fisher said Jackson was pulled because of a groin injury, not because of the penalty. Cue: benching speculation.

Should Jackson be unable to play against the Bears, it's likely that Daryl Richardson would see most of the action at running back for the Rams.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is slated for noon CT and will be televised on FOX.
