Spagnuolo: Jackson's back surgery 'minor'
By Mike Sando
Rams running back Steven Jackson underwent back surgery in April, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
What does it mean?
Coach Steve Spagnuolo told Thomas the surgery was a minor procedure and Jackson was fine.
Here's the thing about back injuries, however: They can be unpredictable and easily misunderstood. That was the lesson Seattle learned with Matt Hasselbeck.
The true test for Jackson will come during the regular season.
