Steven Jackson benched after unsportsmanlike conduct penalty

John Paulsen, Twitter - [Full Article]

Rams RB Steven Jackson was benched after drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the middle of the 2nd quarter. He was flagged for spiking the ball after a run that was ruled short of the goal line.

Update: Jason La Canfora tweeted, "Steven Jackson had a hamstring issue, I'm told, which played a role in him sitting out much of the game. Wasn't just a benching."

Fantasy Impact: 

Rookie Daryl Richardson took over, rushing 15 times for 83 yards while adding two catches for 19 yards, but lost two fumbles. Expect S-Jax to return to his normal role after taking his medicine this week. If he is injured, Richardson would be a nice pickup. He's clearly ahead of Isaiah Pead at this point.
