Found September 23, 2012 on Next Impulse Sports:
According to NFL Network’s Stacey Dales, Rams’ RB Steven Jackson is active and will play today vs the Bears.  Jackson’s mysterious second half absence in last week’s win over Washington raised red flags as it was not clear whether the veteran was benched following an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty or if he was battling a groin injury.  Regardless, Jackson is active and should see the majority of the touches but because of Daryl Richardson’s effectiveness last week, Jackson is not a reliable fantasy back in Week 3.   Active: Marques Colston Steven Jackson Dexter McCluster Jason Witten Miles Austin   Inactive: Pierre Garcon Matt Forte Aaron Hernandez Rashad Jennings Dustin Keller Kevin Boss Jeremy Maclin Rashard Mendenhall James Harrison Troy Polamalu Fred Jackson   Featured Image: Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images   Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

Mucho Frio: Steven Jackson

I’m feeling my age Juan… Heading into the season Steven Jackson looked to be in exceptional shape as he dropped to 5% body fat (same as me) and was ready to make some noise in Jeff Fisher’s run heavy offense.

Chicago loss a flashback to 2011 puny attack

Sam Bradford absorbed six sacks and Steven Jackson rushed for just 29 yards. The St. Louis offense, so potent the first two weeks, found no holes in Week 3. The 23-6 loss at Chicago was an uncomfortable flashback to 2011, when the Rams were at the bottom of the NFL with a 12-point scoring average.

So I ask you, who is this week's Andre Brown? Who will we all be bidding on? Other players I'm wary of but have to play this week in various leagues: Marques Colston, Jamaal Charles (actually...
