Slowly approaching kickoff, take a look at the pregame inactives for the Los Angeles Rams:
The Rams will be missing a key piece in starting OLB Robert Quinn, though his absence (illness) will open up a huge spot for guys like Matt Longacre, and the youngsters Samson Ebukam and Ejuan Price - who will be active for the first time this season.
RB Lance Dunbar is active for the first time as a Ram as well, with Justin Davis and Malcolm Brown both missing the game. Look for the offense to slowly acclimate Dunbar into the rotation.
Blocking TE Derek Carrier is another absence to keep your eyes on.
As for the Houston Texans:
Not being too familiar with these inactives, this team has been heavily affected by the injury bug (Deshaun Watson, J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus, Christian Covington all on IR).
ILB Dylan Cole has been a contributor for the Texans defense, and going forward that loss will hurt as they’ve taken multiple hits to their front-seven.
