Steven Jackson has been announced as inactive for the Rams today; Jackson suffered a quad injury in the fourth quarter last week. Antonio Pittman and Travis Minor likely will see the majority of the carries for the Rams.
Look for UNH alum Dan Kreider, by the way, blocking out of the backfield. He'll need to be on top of his game -- Pittman and Minor aren't going to squeeze through some of the holes Jackson would have squeezed through.
Sammy Morris and LaMont Jordan, by the way, are inactive for the Patriots. Look for the bulk of the carries to fall to BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
