Mark Barron Inactive for Week 1 vs. Raiders

OAKLAND — Inside linebacker Mark Barron — officially listed as doubtful heading into Monday's contest with an ankle injury — is inactive for Week 1 against the raiders. 

Ramik Wilson is expected to start in Barron's place next to defensive signal-caller Cory Littleton at inside linebacker. 

With Barron recovering from offseason surgeries during OTAs and training camp, Wilson has been practicing at that spot leading up to the 2018 regular season.

"He's started before in the league and he's played well when he's been in there. And, he knows what to do," defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said of Wilson this week. "He's a real smart player, so I have confidence in him." 

Below are the full lists of inactives for both the Rams and Raiders. Kickoff is slated for 7:20 p.m. PT.
