Daryl Richardson Leads St. Louis Rams' Rushing Mix If Steven Jackson Can't Go

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is listed as questionable entering Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, after injuring his groin last weekend against the Washington Redskins. If Jackson cannot play on Sunday, it appears rookie Daryl Richardson will spearhead the St. Louis rushing attack. Via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

A strong training camp and preseason made Richardson the surprise winner of the backup job ahead of second-round pick Pead. After rushing for 103 yards on 17 carries in his first two NFL games, Richardson appears to have earned the full trust of Fisher - to the point that Fisher says the game plan won't have to be adjusted if Richardson starts.

Without Jackson, fellow rookies Isaiah Pead and Terrance Ganaway would also be expected to see some work out of the backfield for St. Louis.
