Thanks in part to the bye week, RB Steven Jackson is as close to 100 percent as he's been since suffering a quad muscle injury on his first carry of the season, a 47-yard touchdown run against Philadelphia. Not that backup Cadillac Williams didn't do a good job in his place, but Jackson remains one of the league's elite backs and his presence in the lineup at least levels the playing some for the Rams. In his six previous seasons as a full-time NFL starter, from 2005-10, Jackson has averaged 342 "touches" per season, more than any other back in the league. Because of the injury, he has only 27 so far this season (23 carries/4 receptions). He had 17 of those carries on Oct. 2 against Washington prior to the bye week, but didn't look healthy.
