Jackson injured his groin on a 2-yard run in the second quarter of the Rams‘ 30-16 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. He was down for several minutes, received treatment on the sideline before walking to the locker room.
“All the signs point to that it’s not a tear,” Jackson said. “You never know until we see the MRI. I’m just praying and hoping it’s not going to be a serious injury. I hope I can come back and not sit out a long time.”
Detroit rookie running back Jahvid Best left the Lions’ 24-10 loss at Minnesota with pain in his right big toe in the third quarter and didn’t return.
“I got tackled on a pass I caught over the middle,” Best said. “They wrapped me up and tackled me, and I got up and my toe wasn’t feeling right.”
Coach Brad Childress said both players should be all right, especially since the Vikings have their bye next week and don’t play again until Oct. 11, a Monday night road game against the New York Jets.
Shiancoe was hurt early in the third quarter. Team trainers were working on the back of his right leg, in the hamstring area. He returned for one series, then spent the rest of the second half wearing a cap on the sideline.
San Diego star linebacker Shawne Merriman left the Chargers’ 27-20 loss at Seattle after injuring his left calf in the first quarter. He was seen on the Chargers’ bench with a wrap on his left leg.
Merriman’s backup, Larry English, was inactive for Sunday’s game with a foot injury.
The Chargers also appeared to lose starting right guard Louis Vasquez, who injured his left knee after getting caught in a pile. Vasquez was taken off the field on a cart.View Entire Story
