Last Monday's St. Louis trade for wide receiver WR Brandon Lloyd left Brandon Gibson as odd man out against Dallas. Gibson, the Rams' leading pass-catcher through the first five games with 17 receptions, was one of the team's pregame inactives.
Lloyd and Alexander started at wide receiver, with rookies Greg Salas and Austin Pettis plus second-year man Dominque Curry the other active wideouts. Curry, normally used only on special teams, saw action at wide receiver.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo said wide receiver Danario Alexander suffered a hamstring injury, although the extent of that injury was not known. Although he was targeted six times, Alexander had a quiet day with two catches for 9 yards.
