Defensive end Aaron Kampman, who had been questionable with a back injury that kept him out of practice Friday, was in the lineup for Green Bay. Kampman was among the league leaders with 11 sacks in 13 games.
Rams wide receiver Derek Stanley, elevated from the practice squad during the week, was set to make his NFL debut as St. Louis' punt and kick returner. He replaced Brandon Williams, out a second straight week with an ankle injury.
The Rams started Andy McCollum at center for the third straight week in place of Brett Romberg, who has recovered from a high right ankle sprain that sidelined him five of the last six games. Coach Scott Linehan said on Friday he'd leave McCollum in the lineup to maintain continuity.
Quarterback Brock Berlin, elevated from the practice squad last week to make the start at Cincinnati with both Marc Bulger and backup Gus Frerotte sidelined, was the Rams' third quarterback.
Rams must score early and control the clock with Jackson
This is a matchup of two teams on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Green Bay has exceeded all expectations in what most thought would be Brett Favre's final year while St. Louis has not come close to what most expected of it. Favre plays each play like it could be his last one and no one wants to miss what could be their final chance to see him play, although he keeps surprising all of us who want to try and predict when he will hang up his cleats. After a very disappointing first half of the season, the Rams have started to show us glimpses of what could have been and what could be in the future once they become healthy again. This could be a high-scoring game that promises to provide lots of big, explosive plays by both teams.
