St. Louis Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy has been banged up most of this season but has continued to push forward.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Stacy practiced today.
The 160th overall pick in this years draft has been dealing with a left ankle injury ever since he rushed for 134 yards against the Seattle Seahawks. Now if he was able to rush for 130 yards against the Seahawks, how much will he pick up against the Chicago Bears?
Now as a Bears fan, that number frightens me. Especially since it was against a great defense like Seattle’s. This rushing defense has been one of the worst in the league and has allowed guys who haven’t had 100 yard rushing games in awhile to pick up more than that.
Brandon Jacobs, who I believe hasn’t had a 100 yard rushing game since the 2011 season before playing the Chicago Bears, rushed for 100 yards against them. They even allowed a struggling Ray Rice (hard to believe he’s struggled) to rush for over 100 yards.
Rice had a season long run of 14 yards, on his first carry of the game he broke free for a 47 yard pick up. So if Stacy was able to rush for over 130 yards against the Seahawks, could he break 200 yards against the Chicago Bears?
I hope not, but I can see it happening.
