The St. Louis Rams appear to have options in easing the workload on running back Steven Jackson.
Jackson remains the feature back but he might find himself getting fewer carries - and fewer bumps and bruises - after recording 70 percent of the team's carries the past seven seasons.
St. Louis took two backs in this year's draft, grabbing Isaiah Pead with the third of three...
Rookie Janoris Jenkins draws a vivid description of how he wants to play cornerback for the St. Louis Rams.
''I play like a ninja, an assassin,'' Jenkins said Thursday after practice at Rams Park. ''I love to be around the ball. I'm quick and physical. I just play the position with a chip on my shoulder.''
The 5-foot-10, 193-pound Jenkins has...
