ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is starting for the Cardinals against the St. Louis Rams after sitting out last week because of a hamstring injury.

Running back Steven Jackson is scheduled to start for the Rams on Thursday night after one limited practice on the short work week due to a nagging groin injury. Offensive tackle Wayne Hunter also started after being limited with a knee injury.

Defensive end Eugene Sims was inactive for the Rams because of a mild concussion. Wide receiver Steve Smith was inactive for the second straight week, with rookies Brian Quick and Chris Givens active.

Two Cardinals backup tight ends, Todd Heap and Jim Dray, were out with knee injuries.
