Shaun Hill No. 3 despite broken finger

Shaun Hill will be the team's emergency quarterback despite breaking the index finger on his right hand in Thursday's practice. I've been watching Hill during warm-ups and he seems to be throwing -- the short pass, at least -- ok. At the very least, he'd be able to take off and run with the ball, which is what the other emergency back-ups, Michael Robinson and Arnaz Battle, would be asked to do as well.
The other inactives are WR Ashley Lelie (quad), WR LeRon McCoy, CB Tarell Brown, S Dashon Goldson, T Patrick Estes, DE Atiyyah Ellison and DT Aubrayo Franklin (calf.) Isaac Sopoaga will start for Franklin.
For the Rams, center Brett Romberg is the only inactive of significance, unless you consider Brandon Williams significant.
