  • QB Brandon Allen
  • S Marqui Christian
  • OLB Ejuan Price
  • C Aaron Neary
  • T Andrew Donnal
  • OL J.J. Dielman
  • DT Quinton Jefferson

The good news for the Rams are that there aren’t any surprises on this list. Besides Aaron Donald missing the game after his long hold out ending on Saturday, the only noticeable name on the list is Price. Although Price is a seventh-round rookie so it’s not a complete surprise that he won’t be on the active roster today.

With Donald missing this game, the Rams will look towards rookie Tanzel Smart to start in his first NFL game.

Speaking of Donald don’t expect to see him on the sidelines today:
