Rams RB Jackson has surgery on his ring finger

Rams running back Steven Jackson may be out this weekend after having surgery on his finger, an injury he played with over the weekend in the teams loss in Tampa.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Jackson had surgery on his left ring finger today, saying that two pins were put into the finger.

Jackson’s status for the teams home game vs the Panthers Sunday is up in the air. Spagnuolo says Jackson broke the finger during Sunday’s loss vs the Bucs, a game in which he broke Eric Dickerson’s all-time Rams rushing record. The coach says Jackson simply kept playing.

“He didn’t think it was a big deal,” Spagnuolo said. “He kept playing. … He’s going to be sore. Hopefully, he’ll be able to play this week. We’ll know more after he gets through it. … He’s just a warrior. He goes out and plays and we find out later on there’s a crack in there.”
