Fisher: Rams won’t trade Steven Jackson
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams say running back Steven Jackson is not being traded.
Coach Jeff Fisher did his best to quash persistent rumors, saying Tuesday that the Rams aren’t shopping Jackson and have not been getting calls about him, either.
Jackson entered the season with a franchise-record seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.
Jackson is 11th in the NFC with 403 yards on 108 carries with a 3.7-yard average and one touchdown and rookie Daryl Richardson is 12th in the conference with 335 yards and a 5.4-yard average.
Richardson, a seventh-round pick out of Abilene Christian, moved ahead of Isaiah Pead in training camp.
Fisher also said that defensive back Matt Daniels was placed on injured reserve because of a knee injury from the Rams’ 45-7 loss to the Patriots in London on Sunday.
