ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is on the verge of a milestone.

Just 34 more yards rushing, and he will become the seventh player in NFL history to gain 1,000 yards in seven or more consecutive seasons. Only Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders, Curtis Martin, Thurman Thomas, Eric Dickerson and LaDainian Tomlinson have done it.

Jackson knows he is close to being in elite company going into Saturday's game at Pittsburgh. And it would give Jackson something to smile about in another lost year for the Rams.

He has played in just one playoff game in eight seasons with St. Louis.
