Well we did not have to worry about Steven Jackson’s workload or if he could take a hit. Both questions were answered pretty quickly in the St. Louis Rams 38-3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Rams fell behind after only 2 minutes and 44 seconds, and their offense was never able to get in sync. Jackson was able to get 14 carries for 40 yards and catch 3 balls for 34 yards. His big play shown below pretty much symbolizes the Rams on Sunday, they were jacked up!
I would like to point out that this hit was from Sheldon Brown the Eagles cornerback, not a safety. Can you remember the last time someone in the Rams secondary would actually hit someone?
