Barron Inactive for Week 2 vs. Arizona

Inside linebacker Mark Barron is inactive for the second week in a row, dealing with an injured achilles. 

Barron did not practice all week, which made it unlikely he would be active for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals. Barron, now in his eighth pro season out of Alabama, was No. 2 on the Rams last year with 108 total tackles.

Head coach Sean McVay said during the week that if Barron was unable to play, Los Angeles would likely use the same plan to replace him on defense. In Week 1, L.A. used linebacker Ramik Wilson at the spot on early downs and safety Marqui Christian for known-passing situations. 

Also on Los Angeles' inactives list is wide receiver Mike Thomas, who will be out for at least a couple weeks with a groin injury. He was listed as out on the Friday injury status. 

Below is the full list of inactives for both teams.
