Banged-up St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson may end up missing the game on Sunday versus the Seattle Seahawks after missing his second consecutive practice on Thursday, according to several reports.
If Jackson is shelved for the game at home against Seattle on Sunday, running back Kenneth Darby will likely get the nod. Darby did a decent job in place of Jackson against Washington, tallying 49 yards on 14 carries.
Losing Jackson will put the St. Louis offense at a distinctive disadvantage against the upstart Seahawks (2-1), led by new coach Pete Carroll. While Darby is an athletic back, there are very few skilled offensive players who can run and catch the ball as well as Jackson can.
