Steven Jackson Correction

Earlier I reported on the possibility of Steven Jackson losing his unrestricted free agent status if he missed another practice. I should have double checked as it turns out that is untrue. (which I should have remembered from the Terrell Owens Fracas with the Eagles).

From Rotowire:
ESPN's NFL Live confirmed with the NFL that Steven Jackson could miss up to eight games and still maintain his status as an unrestricted free agent after this season.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has been reporting that Jackson would lose a credited season towards his unrestricted free agency if he didn't arrive at camp today, but as long as he shows up by week ten, he'll be credited for the current year.
So there you go, sorry about the misinformation. Blame the Post-Dispatch. I will.
