ST. LOUIS (AP) - Steven Jackson sat out St. Louis’ preseason finale against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night, giving the Rams more time to find a backup running back.

Backup quarterback A.J. Feeley also was out for the second straight game because of a sprained right thumb.

Jackson, who participated in pregame warmups, finished the preseason with nine carries for 42 yards. Earlier in the week, coach Steve Spagnuolo said it was 50-50 whether Jackson would play, perhaps to develop chemistry with No. 1 pick Sam Bradford.

Kenneth Darby, Chris Ogbonnaya and Keith Toston were vying for the backup job.
