ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson
ended his holdout Wednesday while his agent continues negotiations for a new contract.
Jackson is entering the final year of a deal he signed as a first-round pick in 2004. The Rams cut off negotiations in late July on the first day of training camp after Jackson's agent turned down a deal the team
said would have put the star back in the top echelon at his
position, saying there would be no further talks until the running
Jackson will undergo a physical exam Thursday morning but is
unlikely to make it onto the practice field in time for the Rams
10:30 a.m. practice.
