Rams' Jackson will start vs. Texans; Boller active but backs up Null

ST. LOUIS -- Running back Steven Jackson and quarterback Kyle Boller are active for the Rams' Sunday game against the Houston Texans after missing practice time because of flulike symptoms.

However, Boller, who missed two days of practice earlier in the week, was the backup, so rookie Keith Null will make his second consecutive start.

The Rams appeared to be over the swine flu that hit them earlier in the week when all players reported for a walkthrough Saturday. Thursday's practice was canceled because of flu concerns.

Rams defensive end Leonard Little was inactive because of a knee infection.

The Texans had no significant players inactive.
