Los Angeles Rams cornerback Aqib Talib (ankle), who was taken off Injured Reserve this week, is active in Week 13 against the Lions. Talib will play but could have his snaps limited, as he hasn't played since late September. Talib's return, however, is bad news for Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay and quarterback Matthew Stafford.
The Los Angeles Rams officially activated cornerback Aqib Talib (ankle) from Injured Reserve on Friday, which is an indication he'll make his return in Week 13 against the Lions. Talib hasn't played since injuring his ankle on Sept. 23, so he should be expected to be limited if he's active this Sunday. Still, Talib's veteran presence will be a big boost to a secondary that has struggled in his absence. LA's defense/special teams is a strong play in Week 13 against a Lions offense that is missing rookie running back Kerryon Johnson and receiver Marvin Jones.
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said the team expects cornerback Aqib Talib (ankle) to return in Week 13 against the Lions. He looked good in practice on Wednesday, but it's still to be determined how much he will actually play on Sunday. Even if Talib plays limited snaps, this is a big boost for a Rams secondary that has struggled without him since he was injured against the Chargers on Sept. 23. LA's defense/special teams is a strong play this weekend against a Lions team without Marvin Jones and rookie Kerryon Johnson.
