Anthony Adams has gone from being a starter on the depth chart to being inactive.
That's the big pregame surprise at this point. No word yet on who will be starting at nose tackle in place of him. The best guess would be Dusty Dvoracek, but that's only a guess at this point.
Wide receiver Mark Bradley, who expressed frustration last week over his role in the offense, is also inactive. He was active for 15 of 16 games last season.
Also down are safety Craig Steltz, guard Dan Buenning, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina and wide receiver Earl Bennett. Caleb Hanie will serve as the third quarterback and of course offensive tackle Chris Williams is inactive.
