Surprise: Rams RB Isaiah Pead is inactive for tonight's game
As expected, Rams running back Daryl Richardson will play tonight despite a foot injury. But what's completely unexpected is that Isaiah Pead , Richardson's backup and the player who filled in for him and got 13 touches last week against the Cowboys, is inactive.
No reason, whether it's related to an injury or disciplinary action, has yet been given for Pead's absence. It means Benny Cunningham will be Richardson's direct backup tonight. I think Richardson is still in the flex range, but this definitely helps his value. He should see 15 or so touches at home against a 49ers defense that ranks 29th in run defense.
