St. Louis Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce was inactive for Saturday night's playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons due to a groin injury that limited
him in practice all week.
Bruce was among the NFL leaders with 89 catches for 1,292 yards, a 14.5-yard average, and six touchdowns. Second-year player Kevin Curtis, who caught
four passes for a career-best 107 yards last week against Seattle, started in his place.

The Rams replaced Bruce on the active list with offensive guard Darnell Alford, who dressed for two regular-season games but did not play. Defensive
lineman Tyoka Jackson also was inactive for the game after missing the Seahawks game with a high ankle sprain.
