ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson has been fined $5,000 for throwing a ball into the stands. He does not plan on appealing.
Jackson said Thursday he knew the fine was coming after he scored in the final minute of Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He said he just wanted to toss a present to the handful of fans who were still around at the end of the game.
The game was blacked out on local television with announced attendance of 47,475 the worst for the franchise in 15 seasons in St. Louis.
Jackson had 89 yards rushing despite being hindered by back spasms that caused him to miss three days of practice. He expects to play Sunday at Chicago even though he's missed two days of practice this week.
