Austin inactive for Rams vs. Buccaneers
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Rams rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin is inactive for the second straight week with a left ankle injury, but cornerback Janoris Jenkins (back) will start.
Both players had been questionable for Sunday’s game, the Rams’ home finale against Tampa Bay.
Backup defensive tackle Matt Conrath (broken left ring finger) also is inactive for St. Louis. Conrath practiced wearing a cast earlier in the week and was optimistic he could play.
Buccaneers safety Mark Barron (hamstring) is inactive. Wide receiver Vincent Jackson (hamstring) is active after being probable.
