ST. LOUIS -- Running back Beanie Wells, who missed three days of practice last week with a knee injury, was among the Arizona Cardinals' inactives for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.

Wide receiver Brandon Gibson was among the Rams' inactives. Mark Clayton, acquired last Monday from the Ravens, was among four active wide receivers.

Tim Hightower was set to start at running back even before Wells' injury for the Cardinals, the two-time defending NFC West champions. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who missed most of the preseason with a knee injury, was in the lineup.

Fitzgerald's late touchdown catch was the difference as the Cardinals beat the Rams 17-13.
