Steven Jackson injury: Rams back held out of Monday practice, expected to play Thursday

Scott Kane-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson missed practice on Monday with a groin injury, but is still expected to play on Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals.

The St. Louis Rams' Steven Jackson has been battling a groin injury all season and was held out of practice on Monday, according to St. Louis Today's Rams Report. The star running back will have little time to recover from his nagging groin ailment with the Rams scheduled to take on the undefeated Arizona Cardinals on Thursday for a rare prime time appearance.

Jackson does not have a single touchdown yet in 2012, putting up 195 yards on 59 carries through the first four games of the season. He had one of his better games so far this year against the Seattle Seahawks, with 55 yards on 18 attempts and ripping off a 23-yarder during the team's 19-13 win on Sunday.

The Rams running back, as well as all of the other players who were held out of Monday's practice for the Rams – except Rodger Saffold and Eugene Sims – are expected to be ready to play against the Cardinals on Thursday night.
