    I don't actually know if inactive guys still show up at games (assume so), but especially with the team staying out west for two games, does everyone go, or does the active 45 stay the same for both weeks?

    Interesting question. I assume, since they are staying west, that they will all travel.

    I'm pretty sure that everyone on the 53 travels to all games, just in case of pre-game injury. If all the 53 don't travel, certainly it's more than the 45 guys that will be active on gameday. There are always players that are "game-time decisions" so they have to bring somone to replace that player should he not be able to give it a go.

    I think a more relevant question is do the practice squad guys travel? And I'm guessing the answer is yes.

    I would think that players who are not physically able to play

    against San Francisco would be left at home.

    I would guess the 53 plus the practice squad.

    Not only that, if they need to work anyone out next week, THEY'D have to go to California, too.

    I'd say everyone essential, including support staff are going.

    Don't forget - this is going to be their home away from home for a week.
