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
back reported.

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.
