Rams RB Jackson misses practice, status for Sunday uncertain

Rams running back Steven Jackson missed practice Wednesday, two days after having surgery on his left ring finger, the *St. Louis Post-Dispatch* reported.

The Rams said two pins were put into the finger, and Jackson's status for this Sunday's home game against the Carolina Panthers is unknown.

Jackson sustained the injury last Sunday during the Rams' 18-17 road loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He rushed for 110 yards, his third consecutive game over the century mark, and passed Eric Dickerson to become the Rams' all-time rushing leader.

"He didn't think it was a big deal," Spagnuolo said Monday of Jackson's reaction to the injury. "He kept playing. ... He's going to be sore. Hopefully, he'll be able to play this week. We'll know more after he gets through it. ... He's just a warrior. He goes out and plays, and we find out later on there's a crack in there."

Also on the sideline Wednesday were cornerback Justin King (hamstring), safeties James Butler (knee) and Darian Stewart (hamstring), and defensive tackles Fred Robbins (toe) and Darell Scott (ankle).
