Steven Jackson heads the St. Louis Rams' Injury Report ahead of Monday Night Football vs. the New York Giants.

Steven Jackson remains questionable on the St. Louis Rams' Week 2 injury report despite not practicing all week following a strange quadriceps injury suffered while running in the open field on his Week 1 touchdown dash against the Philadelphia Eagles. For all that (relative) optimism, most football fans and analysts seem convinced Cadillac Williams will be lining up against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, with Jackson held back despite all his usual protestations.

Jackson's a hard player to keep out of a game—even out of a series, as his historically invisible backups have shown—but the Rams signed Williams and Jerious Norwood for this exact reason—so they'd be able to keep Jackson fresh and as near 100% as he could get as often as they could manage. Williams's outstanding performance Week 1—he ran for 91 yards on 19 carries and caught five balls for 49 yards, his best performance since he rushed for 129 yards back in 2009. If Williams and Norwood can combine to perform about like Jackson, there's no reason to rush Jackson back.
