St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson missed his second straight day of practice Thursday with a groin injury and it was unclear whether he will play Sunday against Seattle.
“Today in rehab, the leg’s still tight, the groin’s still tight,” said Jackson, who was hurt Sunday. “So it’s just one of those injuries where just time is what’s really going to heal the injury. The most I can do now is still mentally prepare myself as if I’m going to go Sunday.”
The Rams (1-2) will play the Seattle Seahawks (2-1) at home Sunday. Seattle has beaten St. Louis in the last 10 meetings.
