Zeigler, Jennings active; Rachal to play

Greetings from sunny Glendale, Ariz., where I can report there is a party-like atmosphere in the parking lot. Barrows rolled in around 2:45 p.m. Pacific and the parking lot already was teeming with Cardinals (and some 49ers) fans. There's a sense that, like the Tennessee Titans a couple weeks ago, the Cardinals want to prove on national television that they desrve all the praise they've been getting lately (and erase the "The Bears are who we thought they were" taste from their mouths) ...

A few pre-game notes ...

-- Dominique Zeigler will be active at receiver because Arnaz Battle (foot) will not. Jonas Jennings (shoulder) also is active but it looks like Adam Snyder will start at right tackle.

-- There is a sense that Chilo Rachal will slowly be worked into the lineup over the second half of the season but it probably won't start tonight ... *****This just in***** Apparently, those plans have been expedited. I'm told that Rachal will play tonight. Not sure if he'll start, but he'll play ...

Here are the 49ers' inactives:
Jamie Martin -- 3rd QB
CB Reggie Smith
S Dashon Goldson
LB Ahmad Brooks
C Cody Wallace
T Barry Sims
TE Sean Ryan
WR Arnaz Battle

Here are the Cardinals inactives
Brian St. Pierre -- 3rd QB
CB Eric Green
T Elliot Valejo (UC Davis)
DT Alan Branch
WR Early Doucet
TE Jerame Tuman
TE Ben Patrick

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will start for Green at quarterback ...
