ST. LOUIS - Things hardly could have been going better for Rams safety Quintin Mikell. He clearly was stung by the Eagles' lack of interest in re-signing him after 2010, when the led the locker room and went to his first Pro Bowl. He landed in St. Louis with a 4-year, $28 million contract - a deal the Eagles never would have considered - and found himself playing his first game against the team that nurtured him for 8 years. And everything was going right . . . before a 31-13 loss.

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson ended his holdout yesterday while his agent continues negotiations for a new contract. The 235-pound Jackson, a bruising runner and the centerpiece of the team's offense, is entering the final year of a 5-year, $7 million 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 agent Eugene Parker turned down a deal the team said would have put Jackson in the top echelon at his position.

ST. LOUIS - If you were expecting perfection from Nnamdi Asomugha, well, you're not going to get it. He is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, but cornerbacks get beat sometimes, and cornerbacks draw penalties sometimes, and cornerbacks miss tackles sometimes. Asomugha did all three in yesterday's 31-13 win over the Rams. Got beat in press coverage by wide receiver Brandon Gibson for a 31-yard completion. Got flagged for a 41-yard pass-interference penalty against Gibson that set up a Josh Brown field goal.

Ricky Williams, who has applied for reinstatement in the NFL after a 1-year suspension for substance abuse, could find a home with the St. Louis Rams. Coach Scott Linehan, the offensive coordinator when Williams played for the Miami Dolphins in 2005, said yesterday he'd consider adding Williams to the roster as a backup. The Rams need depth behind Steven Jackson. "He's proven himself with me," Linehan said. "I know there would be a certain amount of risk involved based on that, but I would just because he deserves that based on what he was able to do. " Williams, who will turn 30 in May, played in Canada last year and is eligible for reinstatement after April 27. Earlier this month Williams' agent, Leigh Steinberg, sent a letter asking that he be allowed to return to the Dolphins.
