Fisher: Steven Jackson has strained groin

Thanks to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for passing along word that Rams running back Steven Jackson suffered a groin injury Sunday.

That was the word from Rams coach Jeff Fisher. Jackson's exit from the game came right after Jackson incurred a 15-yard penalty. That invited questions about whether Fisher had benched Jackson for incurring the penalty.

Jackson has generally been honest about his feelings when speaking publicly. His thoughts on the situation might add important details such as how and when the injury occurred, when he informed the training staff about it, etc.
