St. LOUIS - St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson confirmed his groin injury is only a strain after an MRI exam Monday morning.
Jackson posted the news on his Twitter account, going on to say he is already rehabbing the injury.
Head coach Steve Spagnuolo seemed to confirm the diagnosis by saying there was no tear. He labeled Jackson as day-to-day and said he would be re-evaluated on Wednesday during his afternoon press conference.
Jackson was forced to leave Sunday's 30-16 win against the Redskins in the second quarter after having his left leg yanked from under him on a short carry. He did not return.
Prior to exiting, Jackson had 10 carries for 58 yards, including a 42-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. He has 214 rushing yards, a touchdown and 62 yards on nine receptions through the Rams' first three games.
Spagnuolo also said Monday that rookie wide receiver and special teams contributor Dominique Curry sustained an ACL injury requiring surgery and will be placed on injured reserve.
