Steven Jackson Carries St. Louis Rams, Nobody Surprised

Remember when the St. Louis Rams were carried by Steven Jackson every week? Remember when the Rams won every so often? Rams fans and Jackson fantasy football owners got to relive the dream Sunday afternoon when the Face of the Franchise ran the ball 25 times for 159 yards and two touchdowns with A.J. Feeley the only other thing going on for the Rams on offense.  

The 159 yards were his most since Week 16 in 2008, which was also the last time he ran for two touchdowns. In the meantime Feeley continued to target Brandon Lloyd in such a way as to excite Rams fans for Sam Bradford's eventual return—Lloyd caught six balls for 53 yards and a touchdown, while Greg Salas remains the next guy on the Rams' list despite his incredibly slow start. 

Since returning to the Rams full-time following his Week 1 injury Jackson has had two excellent games—18 rushes for 96 yards at Green Bay and this week's performance in St. Louis—one mixed performance, and that 17 carry, 45 yard mistake against the Washington Redskins

NFL Week 8 Injury Update: New Orleans Saints Running Back Mark Ingram Out Against St. Louis Rams

Adam Schefter is reporting that New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram is out for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. The Mark Ingram injury opens the door for running back Chris Ivory to return from the PUP (physically unable to perform) list to the active roster.

Earlier today, the Rams announced quarterback Sam Bradford would be out this week, leading to another A.J. Feeley start. The loss of Mark Ingram will certainly hurt the Saints offense, especially if Ivory is still not at full-speed, but with quarterback Drew Brees healthy, the Saints do not figure to look too much worse than usual.

Working the Rams favor, however, are the injuries to linebacker Jonathon Vilma and defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, both of whom are questionable going into Sunday's contest. And, frankly, the Rams offense could use all the help it can get while trying to keep up with the explosive Saints.
