Rams RB Steven Jackson out for Giants game

                        (US PRESSWIRE)
Posted by Ryan Wilson

This morning, head coach Steve Spagnuolo called running back Steven Jackson "a tough call" for the Rams-Giants Monday night game. According to CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman, Jackson, who suffered a quadriceps injury in the Week 1 loss to the Eagles, is officially a no-go. The Rams running back told NFL Network's Albert Breer that he "Just couldn't open up." 

St. Louis has been hit hard by injuries early in the season: wide receiver Danny Amendola is out with an arm injury, cornerback Ronald Bartell is done for the year with a fractured bone in his neck, and quarterback Sam Bradford will play with a bruised right hand.

Cadillac Williams, who was selected fifth overall in 2005 by the Bucs, will start in Jackson's place. Williams' career has been marred by knee injuries but he signed with the Rams in the offseason to add depth.

Hot Routes 11.27.10: Raiders fool us all

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

- So, it’s looking like Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski will get the start this week in place of Jason Campbell. Which isn’t what we expected yesterday.

- Rams RB Steven Jackson has been using an altitude tent this week in preparation for facing the Broncos in Denver. Meanwhile, St. Louis CB Ronald Bartell tried his twice, and he’s not going to use it ever again. Read this St. Louis Post Dispatch story to find out why (ahem, he might have got himself stuck inside).

- It might not be rocket science, but Titans QB Rusty Smith likely will look to pass more to WR Randy Moss than his predecessors. Before they got injured, Vince Young and Kerry Collins targeted Moss a combined total of four times, and last week, Young looked his way just once. When Smith entered the game, by the way, he tried throwing to Moss three times.

- Watching the Chargers-Broncos game last week, I was struck by how often Denver QB Kyle Orton threw toward the receiver who was being covered by San Diego rookie CB Antoine Cason. And I was struck by how well Cason played. In actuality, Cason has been pretty good most of the season.

- What will happen to Tarvaris Jackson now? Maybe he should just get the hell out of Dodge.

- Once again, nobody has any idea if Antonio Gates’ foot will allow him to play this weekend. Plantar fasciitis sounds less than fun.

- Jake Delhomme will start Sunday for the Browns when he takes on his old team, the Panthers. But he understands who Cleveland’s quarterback of the future is. His name is Colt McCoy.

- Jimmy Clausen will start at QB this Sunday for the Panthers. Who backs him up is a little more complicated.

- The Redskins today waived WR Joey Galloway. In many fans' views, it's about freakin' time .
