Bradford, Winfield lead big names on early inactive list

For the second straight week, quarterback Sam Bradford will give way to A.J. Feeley in St. Louis, which must have Josh McDaniels wondering if Scott Pioli's going to hit him up anytime soon. The Rams' pathetic offense won't have much of a chance against the New Orleans Saints, especially with receiver Danario Alexander and tackle Jason Smith also out. For the Minnesota Vikings, there's the small matter of dealing with Cam Newton without their two best cornerbacks — Chris Cook (suspended) and Antoine Winfield (actually injured).

Also, remember when Lee Evans was supposed to help the Ravens' passing game? Yeah … us, too.

Here are all the early inactives — as always, a big thanks to Brian McIntyre at Mac's Football Blog!
