Gandy active, will start for Cardinals

SAN FRANCISCO -- Mike Gandy is active and will start at left tackle for the Cardinals after backup Jeremy Bridges helped hold Vikings pass-rusher Jared Allen to zero sacks in Week 13.

Bridges will serve in the No. 2 role. Gandy missed the Minnesota game after suffering a pelvic injury. The 49ers gave Gandy problems in the season opener.

The Cardinals listed the following players inactive: Greg Toler, Reggie Walker, Will Davis, Herman Johnson, Brandon Keith, Stephen Spach and Jerheme Urban. Brian St. Pierre is the third quarterback.
