Fisher: Rams not trading RB Jackson

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 30, 2012
The St. Louis Rams say running back Steven Jackson is not available in a trade. Coach Jeff Fisher did his best to quash persistent rumors, saying Tuesday that the Rams aren't shopping Jackson and have not been getting calls about him, either. ''The Steven Jackson rumors are rumors,'' Fisher said. ''He's our running back and we're not calling around, nor are we getting calls for that matter. ''Put that to rest.'' Jackson, who entered the season with a franchise-record seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, is sharing carries on an extensive basis for the first time in his career. Jackson is 11th in the NFC with 403 yards on 108 carries with a 3.7-yard average and one touchdown and rookie Daryl Richardson is 12th in the conference with 335 yards and a 5.4-yard average. Richardson, a seventh-round pick out of Abilene Christian, jumped ahead of second-rounder Isaiah Pead in training camp. Fisher also said that rookie defensive back Matt Daniels was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury sustained in the Rams' 45-7 loss to the Patriots in London on Sunday. Daniels made the team as an undrafted free agent and played on special teams in four games. The Rams (3-5) have a bye this week and will practice Wednesday and Thursday before getting four days off. They return to action Nov. 11 at San Francisco. Fisher said the practices this week will emphasize opportunistic play. ''We have a lot of work to do in all areas halfway through the season,'' Fisher said. ''Right now we're not scoring touchdowns and we're not getting takeaways, and that's going to be our focus during the bye week.''
