Rams vs. Bucs: Four Rams miss Wednesday's practice because of illness

Leon Halip

Steven Jackson was among the four Rams out with illness. Three other Rams missed practice with injuries.

Four St. Louis Rams players missed practice because of illness Wednesday, according to SB Nation St. Louis. The sick players included running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Robert Quinn, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and cornerback Bradley Fletcher. In addition, linebacker James Laurinaitis (back), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (thigh), and center Scott Wells (knee) also sat out Wednesday's session. The status of each player for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay remains uncertain, but none of the absences are thought to be serious.

Jackson eclipsed the 10,000 career rushing yards mark on Sunday during the Rams' 36-22 loss to Minnesota. He finished Sunday's game with 73 yards on 13 rushing attempts. He's racked up 909 yards and three touchdowns for the Rams so far this season.

With the loss to Minnesota, St. Louis is down to the slimmest of chances to make the postseason. According to the team blog, there's less than a one percent chance the Rams will make the playoffs. That hasn't deterred St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher, however, who recently referenced Dumb and Dumber to describe his team's playoff hopes.
