Steven Jackson Injury: Jackson Out For Rams Vs. Giants Monday Night Football

Steven Jackson is out with a quad injury for the St. Louis Rams vs. the New York Giants on Monday Night Football; Cadillac Williams will get the bulk of the team's carries in his absence.

Steven Jackson will miss the St. Louis Rams' Monday Night Football matchup with the New York Giants according to reports just ahead of gametime; the Rams running back had been a game-time decision for the club ahead of their Week 2 contest, which is scheduled for 7:30 PM CDT on ESPN. Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood will get the bulk of the Rams' carries in his stead while Jackson continues to recover from a quad injury that saw him miss most of Week 1 after running untouched for a 47-yard touchdown on the Rams' first offensive play of the season. 

Jackson played all 16 games in 2010, just the second time in his career he's played a full season, but it was the least effective 16 games of his career; Jackson averaged just 3.8 yards a carry on his way to six touchdowns. He's a career 4.3 yards per carry rusher, and the team's all-time rushing leader with 8004 career yards on the ground to go with 2670 through the air. 

Williams had an excellent performance in Jackson's absence last Sunday, rushing 19 times for 91 yards and catching five balls for 49 more.
