Crabtree, the 49ers' top wide receiver last season, has been sidelined all season since tearing his right Achilles tendon in a May workout and undergoing surgery.
Left guard Mike Iupati missed his second straight game for San Francisco with a sprained left knee, while cornerback Tarell Brown also sat out a second in a row because of a rib injury. Adam Snyder is starting in place of Iupati and Tramaine Brock for Brown.
Rams right guard Harvey Dahl missed his fourth straight game because of a knee injury.
