It's a new Steven Jackson these days when it comes to answering questions from the media. Not a wallflower, but certainly not so outspoken. So when asked if his back was sore from carrying the Rams offense all season, he smiled broadly but didn't really bite.
"It just comes with the duty of playing running back," Jackson said. "You get beat up a little bit. We're just hoping that it allows me to play. I'm expecting to play Sunday. If that answers any questions — I'm expecting to play."
