Injuries will keep defensive end Calais Campbell (calf) and wide receiver Early Doucet (ribs) as inactive today against the Rams, but it would seem that it is a coach’s decision that will keep tight end Todd Heap inactive once again. Heap practiced full all week and was probable for the game, but after missing every game since Week 2 with knee issues, coach Ken Whisenhunt warned that Heap being active on game day would depend on the rest of the 46-man game day roster. With Rob Housler playing a bigger role, Heap just isn’t as crucial at this point.
With Doucet down, rookie Michael Floyd will have to perform, and it means LaRon Byrd is active too.
Besides Heap, Doucet and Campbell, the rest of the inactives:
— QB Kevin Kolb (ribs)
— RB Alfonso Smith (with Beanie back and LaRod Stephens-Howling playing despite sore ribs, Smith must sit)
— G Senio Kelemete
— T Pat McQuistan
