Through four games, the Rams have seen more injuries than many teams see through a season, and the list continues to grow. Coach Scott Linehan addressed the media on Monday and began with yet another lengthy injury report.

Defensive ends Leonard Little (knee) and James Hall (pectoral) as well as linebacker Raonall Smith (knee), cornerback Corey Chavous (pectoral) and wide receiver Isaac Bruce (hamstring) underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests Monday afternoon. The results of those tests are not yet known.

Little and Hall aggrivated injuries suffered last week against the Buccaneers. Chavous, Smith and Bruce were injured in Sunday’s game.

Tackle Adam Goldberg also had an MRI Monday, and it showed that he has a second-grade MCL sprain, which will keep him out at least four weeks.

Wide receiver Dane Looker remained in Dallas after yesterday’s contest with a contusion on his thigh.

“It’s basically such a bad thigh bruise that there’s really nowhere for that blood to go,” Linehan said. “They don’t want to get him in the air. He’ll stay down there until (Tuesday) night or Wednesday morning at the latest before he’s released. He’ll be out this game as well.”

Heading into the game against Dallas, the Rams were without running back Steven Jackson, who suffered a partially torn groin against the Buccaneers. Linehan said Jackson would be out this week, but that he is improving.

Guard Richie Incognito (ankle) looks to be ready to return to the lineup this week against the Cardinals. Incognito participated in practice last week, but did not suit up Sunday against the Cowboys.

“We’re very optimistic about (Incognito),” Linehan said. “Wednesday will be a big day for Richie.”

The Rams were also without cornerback Tye Hill (back) who will be questionable for this week. It is more than likely that Hill will be out against Arizona this weekend, but Linehan said they would see how he felt when the Rams return to practice on Wednesday.

The good news at the cornerback position is that Fakhir Brown’s four-game suspension ended after the Cowboys game, and he will return to practice this week. Both Linehan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said that Brown will start this week against the Cardinals.



so here's the short story

Steven Jackson: Doubtful this weekend vs. Arizona
Fakhir Brown: served his 4 game suspension and could add some help in there week secondary
Adam Goldberg: out for at least 4 weeks
Richie Incognito: should start against Cardinals
Tye Hill: should sit out this sunday

I don't see any reason why you would play Jackson against the Cardinals this week, no reason to risk your star against a team that is already set on stopping everyone from running against them.

He won't play. With the 0-4 start, anyone that is banged up at all should just sit until they are 100 percent, except Marc Bulger of course, because the more hurt he is the better he gets. He's weird like that.
