As expected, strong safety Kam Chancellor (bruised pelvis) and left tackle Russell Okung (strained calf) are inactive today for the regular-season finale here in Arizona, a preservation move for next week’s playoff opener. Kelcie McCray will start again for Chancellor, who got hurt early in the win at Baltimore Dec. 13. Alvin Bailey gets his second consecutive start for Okung.
