The list of inactives for the Los Angeles Rams comes with a few surprises this week:
FS Maurice Alexander, CB Lamarcus Joyner, QB Case Keenum, DE Matt Longacre, LT Greg Robinson, WR Mike Thomas, and OL Cody Wichmann are all inactive.
There’s a lot to digest here, starting with Greg Robinson. This marks the second time in four games that the former #2 overall pick has been benched. This is not good news for Robinson. He’s going to have to show something this offseason to the new staff if he’s going to stick around.
We knew that Keenum wasn’t going to dress, but Alexander and Joyner being inactive hurts. The Rams secondary will be pretty thin today.
Here are the inactives for the 49ers:
LB Tank Carradine, RB Mike Davis, NT Glenn Dorsey, QB Blaine Gabbert, CB Dontae Johnson, OG Marcus Martin, and OT Joe Staley.
The two big names here are Dorsey and Staley. Dorsey being out bodes well for a Rams OL that has struggled tremendously this season. We knew that Staley being out was a possibility, but that doesn’t mean that it still isn’t bad juju for the 49ers.
