The St. Louis Rams could be without running back Steven Jackson and offensive lineman Rodger Saffold against the Chicago Bears next week, though the status of each remains uncertain.

The St. Louis Rams face the possibility of neither Steven Jackson nor Rodger Saffold playing in their Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears, Sporting News reports.

Jackson was pulled in the second quarter of Sunday's victory over the Washington Redskins because of a groin strain. Initially, it appeared that the Rams running back was being pulled after spiking the ball and drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but that was not the case.

Saffold made a surprising return to the team after a neck injury in Week 1 made him doubtful for this weekend's game. He didn't last long, injuring his left knee after recovering a Sam Bradford fumble. His status remains unclear at this point.

Wayne Hunter replaced Saffold at left tackle and, although the offensive line as a whole is dealing with three replacements, Turf Show Times reports it's not going all too poorly.
