ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Steven Jackson has not ruled himself out for the St. Louis Rams' Monday night game against the New York Giants. Jackson strained his right quadriceps on a 47-yard scoring run on the Rams' first offensive play of the season during Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Jackson said Thursday the injury has improved, but he hasn't practiced yet this week.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo says Jackson will be evaluated closer to game day.

Jackson says he wants to play in the Rams' first Monday night appearance since 2006. But he says  being 100 percent for the next game -- against Baltimore -- must be considered.

Backup Cadillac Williams had 91 yards rushing and 49 yards receiving in the 31-13 loss to Philadelphia.
