Rams' Jackson Has Surgery

ST. LOUIS — Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo announced on Monday that running back Steven Jackson had surgery on a fractured left ring finger.

"He didn't think it was a big deal," Spagnuolo said at his Monday press conference. "He kept playing."

Jackson had two pins put into his finger.

"He's going to be sore," the coach said. "Hopefully he'll be able to play this week. We'll know more after he gets through it. But that's a tough thing. I don't know what they did, if they put a plate in or screws. He's just a warrior. He goes out and plays and we find out later on there's a crack in there."

Jackson passed Eric Dickerson for the Rams all-time rushing record with a 3-yard run in the second quarter of Sunday's loss. Dickerson had 7,245 yards. Jackson, in the middle of his sixth season, now has 7,324.

"I want to congratulate … the achievement that Steven, the milestone he surpassed yesterday," Spagnuolo said. "Wonderful, wonderful thing for him, for this organization, for all the guys along the way that have blocked for him. Hopefully there's a lot more yards to come."

Jackson has topped the 100-yard mark in each of the last three games and his 617 rushing yards rank fourth in the NFL and second in the NFC.
